Description

Looking for an inspiring role this Summer?

 Since Collett's started in 1998 we have had an artist in resort to offer informal watercolour tuition to our guests. Not only do these mountains offer spectacular variety and exhilaration to walkers, they provide masses of wonderful subject matter to the artist.

The area is characterised by awe-inspiring terrain, which you'll be trying to capture on paper. The Resort Artist is responsible for providing informal watercolour tuition to guests on a one to one basis or in a small group (up to 12), normally on location somewhere in the area, two days a week (Mondays and Fridays). Like the rest of the team, on the other days, your duties would include daily domestic help in our chalets (assistance before, during and after breakfast and dinner, preparation of packed lunches, room and apartment cleans and changeovers, welcoming new guests and settling them in, and constant hosting around the chalets).

Painting Days involve spending the day with a group of guests in an outdoor location offering watercolour tuition and helping in the evening at 'Office Hour' (and occasionally in one of the chalets at dinner). These are the days on which you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery that surrounds us in the Dolomites in the company of our guests, who, like you, are likely to have a passion for the outdoors and hopefully an interest in painting!

The majority of guests will be walkers interested in a day's painting, but there are some who come out with the specific intention of painting as often as possible. These people vary in experience and ability, but it is fair to say that the majority of guests require help with basic painting/drawing skills.

Requirements

The following are absolutely essential:
  • Formal training in art & or design up to HND or degree level. Failing this, a sound personal ability in painting and drawing.
  • Our artists need not be watercolour specialists nor experienced tutors as such. We are looking for an engaging and naturally helpful personality, who enjoys people and passing on their knowledge as an artist.
  • A basic First Aid qualification.

A Bonus but Not Essential

  • Teaching experience of some sort, or a genuine interest in sharing your skills with others.
