A Scenic Artist at ATOMIC loves to paint, let’s start there. Life in our paint shop changes with every project. Some projects require techniques to create texture, illusion and uniformity; others are heavy on spraying for coverage. And, when we’re REALLY having fun…we’re slinging paint to create sweet high-end scenic art. So, if you like to call yourself an artist and have the skills to back that up, and we sound like a fun bunch to you, take a gander here.
