Artist Assistants are primarily responsible for managing sales tracking and package pick-up for the artist. Artists are not allowed to conduct financial transactions in the booth, so the Artist Assistant writes up a sales receipt, which the shopper takes to a payment station for processing. Then they or the concierge service returns to the booth to pick up their purchase.

The artists’ earnings are tallied from the receipts that you write. So it is VERY important that you understand the process and follow it carefully.

So please plan to participate in a training session, which is available in both video format and live in-person sessions. You can choose either format.

We plan to send out the video early next week.

If you would prefer to attend in person, there are two training dates:

ARTIST ASSISTANT TRAINING
IFAM Headquarters – 620 Cerrillos Rd.
Saturday, July 7 -9-11 a.m.
*PLEASE NOTE: WE EXPECT THIS TRAINING TO BE VERY BUSY. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO WATCH THE VIDEO TO AVOID FINDING PARKING NEAR IFAM HEADQUARTERS, WAITING TO SIT IN A TRAINING, ETC.

The training is conducted in small groups of 5 or 6 people, so those times are essentially an “open house.” You do not need to arrive at the start time noted above. Come any time within that window.

When you arrive, we will assign small groups to an instructor, then the training will take 15-20 minutes.

Note that badge and t-shirt pick-up will NOT be available at the June 26 training. But it will be available at the July 7 training.

Thank you again for volunteering!
