Description:

The University of Pikeville is seeking applications for the part-time work-study position of Studio Monitor in the Art department.

A primary characteristic of students working as either a gallery monitor or as a studio monitor should be responsibility.

Monitors are expected to be responsible w/re: to keeping their established hours and for notifying the supervisor if unable to keep their schedule. Preferred skills: Because the monitor is the only way for art students to gain access to the studios to work on their projects, they must be responsible.
