THE JUILLIARD SCHOOL, LINCOLN CENTER, NEW YORK: Scene Painting Apprenticeships available for the 2019-2020 season (September 2019 – May 2020). The apprentices in the scenic art department work on all productions under the supervision of the charge artist and assistant charge artist. While working on roughly two dozen productions of differing sizes over the course of the year, apprentices will learn sample processes, layout, and typical scenic techniques. This includes hard scenery, textures, soft goods and drops, faux finishes, and some sculpting. The responsibilities of apprentices also include day to day shop maintenance, and completed independent drawing and painting projects, in order to hone their skills. Safety training and portfolio development will also be addressed. All applicants must show examples of their practical scene painting experience and drawing abilities with a portfolio. They should be self-motivated individuals who pride themselves on cooperation and quality work.
Scene Painting Apprenticeships are full time, 40 hour per week. Pay is $15 per hour. Overtime wages are paid starting the 41st hour of work in a given week, at a rate of one-and-a-half times the hourly rate or $22.50 per hour.
Application deadline is May 1, 2019. For detailed information on the program and a downloadable application form visit The Juilliard School website: http://www.juilliard.edu/apprentice.
