Brush & Color uses a Systems Approach to painting — meaning every task has a built in step-by-step system, making production not only a breeze, but also fun and creative! Innovating systems in the business is a great opportunity for growth and development within the company.

Salary: $12.00 to $28.00 /hour

Pay starts at $12/hr for the first two weeks, raising $1/week until you are well trained, then pay will transform to “piece pay", meaning you get the piece of the project that you complete. Piece Pay has shown to increase productivity AND increase employees salaries over 25%! I recently met a 26 year old painter in Denver who only had been painting for two years and is currently making $80,000/year!

My name is Nicholas Painter. I started Brush & Color last April, in Baltimore, MD. I moved to Austin shortly after starting the company, and am so pleased to be here! I started painting in 2004, and have since been working in kitchens and painting, as well as making art and music.
 
Brush & Color has opportunities to showcase artwork on our social media platforms and we hope to be working with the city of Austin on Projects as well. Our goal is to build a Culture around Art and Music within our Company. As we grow we plan to be active members in the arts and culture community.
 
I look forward to meeting with you and discussing your potential career at Brush & Color!
