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. Hours will be determined after a sincere consideration of the student’s available hours and in coordination with other students working in these areas. These hours will then be published and every effort must be made to maintain them. Both the gallery monitor position and the studio monitor position do have a fair amount of down time where the monitors can use this time to their advantage.

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.
