Are you looking for an opportunity to bring the fun and excitement to the party, where your smile is reflected in the faces of happy children shouting, "Wow, look at this!"? If so, look no farther! Our event staff are fun engineers, creating an atmosphere full of energy and excitement while bringing joy to our customers. We hire people who care about the quality of their work, how they look, and most of all, the customer. If you take pride in a job well done, then we invite you to contact us today!

Interested contractors should email their introduction with experience to our office via the "Contact Us" page. If we feel that your skills and experience would be a good fit, we will contact you for an interview. Wow us with your personality, and you will be on your way to a fun and rewarding opportunity, and a part of our Creative Illusions family!

To quality, you must:

  • Have reliable transportation
  • Have a cell phone
  • Enjoy working with people from small children to adults
  • Be able to sit or stand for 2-4+ hours at a time

We are looking for artists who:

  • Have friendly interpersonal skills
  • Handle pressure and difficult customers well
  • Have artistic, creative abilities
  • Are quick learners and easily trained
  • Have lots of energy, patience and professionalism
  • Experience with face painting and/or airbrush is a plus, but not required!

Our company offers high quality, professional face painting, airbrush, glitter tattoos and henna for our customers. We take pride in our work ethics, safety standards and procedures, cleanliness and high quality cosmetic paints and supplies. Our face and body artists provide amazing face painting, tattoos and henna for private birthday parties, family reunions, church and school carnivals and festivals, corporate picnics and events, and more! This position requires the ability to sit or stand (your preference) for long periods of time with little to no breaks. It can be high pressure, with long lines and impatient canvases and their parents. The ability to keep a cool head and upbeat, friendly demeanor is an absolute must.

Classes and training are available for the right person and are provided for a nominal fee, which includes your own face painting kit that is yours to keep and use. Please contact us today for more information.
