Children's Art Room Facilitator

PLAY

Los Angeles, CA

About PLAY: 

Since 2005, we’ve been offering classes and community for families with kids from birth to five at our Mid-Wilshire space. PLAY specializes in music and art, and all of our activities are designed for children to participate in along with parents or caregivers. In the design of our space and of our programs, we strive to create an environment that encourages exploration, and is fun and exciting both for kids and their adults.

Job Description:
 
Our art-room facilitators' main responsibility is to help the parents and children (mostly toddlers) who paint during our "Messy Art" hours by getting them materials & smocks, hanging up paintings, and orienting people who are new to the space. The facilitator also cleans up in the art-room, and does a range of general cleaning in our main space (required). 
 
We are looking to add one facilitator to our team, primarily for a regular Saturday morning shift (approx. 9am-1:30pm), during which he or she would also teach one of our session-based Messy Mixed Media classes for children ages 2-5 with accompanying parents or caregivers.

The ideal person for this job is very dependable, a good communicator, loves children and has professional experience working with them, has a friendly demeanor, and is outgoing, energetic, efficient, and detail-oriented. An early childhood education and/or visual arts background is a requirement for this position, and a combination of the two is ideal. Customer service experience is a big plus.
This is a part-time position. Hourly compensation starts at $16.00 (with a 4 hr. min.).
