Mentoring is a structured relationship that brings young artist together with established artists who offer guidance, support and encouragement aimed at developing the confidence and competence of the emerging artist.
STARTING POINT — All artists are given a one hour evaluation with a professional artist and creative specialist to determine if they are ready to move on. We recommend a path for them.
TURNING POINT – Artists who are not quite ready to go on to a professional status are given a 10–15 hour mentorship with a professional artist and business work-shops to help guide them to the next level of their training.
THE MENTORSHIP – Pairing emerging artists with a professional mentor in the com-munity for up to 100 hours of guidance.
PEER TO PEER – Skilled high school students teach art techniques to underserved younger students in exchange for Community Service Hours.
