Frequently Asked Questions
How would mentoring benefit me?
Once you gain a basic level of technical mastery as an artist, the next step is to go deeper and explore the "why" behind your work--figuring out what inspires you, what motivates your work, and how it fits in a larger art historical context. One-on-one mentoring is a great way to gain insight on your "why". Working closely with a mentor accelerates your growth and helps you avoid pitfalls and obstacles to your progress. Most importantly, working with a mentor helps you gain confidence while you develop the skills to more effectively evaluate your own work. A good mentor focuses on where you are at and your work. They honor your style and focus on training your eye not pushing you to emulate their style but helping amplify your voice and your unique style. My intuitive approach allows me to quickly focus on just what you need to move forward. My strength as a mentor is in finding just the right prompt to get you to approach your work in a new way. Your mentoring sessions will leave you with lots of "aha" moments. An effective mentor helps you discover your strengths, builds your confidence, and pushes you to go beyond what you thought was possible. Take the leap and work with me today.
When is mentoring right for me?
A single 30-minute mentoring sessions is a good complement to a class. You can get feedback on your new work and additional ideas and directions to go further with the course concepts. The Art Intensive Mentoring Program is for when you want more on-going direction and feedback on your work. During the program, I work with you to set goals and focus in on what is most important to move your art practice forward--building a cohesive body of work, developing or updating your website so it best highlights your work, applying to residencies or shows, etc. Having ongoing support, accountability, and feedback helps you stay on track and focused as you achieve your goals. Many students start with an individual 30-minute session and find the experience so productive that they sign up for the Art Intensive Mentoring Program.
