ARTIST ASSISTANT TRAINING – VIDEOS

We have broken the following training videos into chapters so you can view the training in “small bites,” or, if you are a returning Artist Assistant, you can skip ahead to Chapter 1.3 to review the point-of-sale process and learn about this year’s updates.

Additionally, there are two shift-specific videos – for those helping with Friday Set-Up and those working the Sunday shifts. If you are volunteering for either of those times, please be sure to watch the appropriate video/s.
