Announcing a New Mentoring Program

**Authentically Human! Not Written by AI**

I’m very excited to share with you some good news. Mastrius has selected me to be a Master Artist for its excellent mentoring program. If you haven’t heard of Mastrius, it’s a learning platform for artists with the mission of taking them to the next level in both craft and career. What’s more, it specializes in mentoring, working with both aspiring and emerging artists as well as more accomplished ones. When I researched the company and interviewed, I was very impressed with the program and the good reviews given by participants—and mentors, too.

In my online program, I’ll be conducting group sessions each month, with no more than ten participants, in a non-competitive, mutually-supportive atmosphere. Here’s what I offer:

Our group will focus on helping artists get to where they need to go–which is not necessarily where they think they need to go! We’ll look at recent samples of everyone’s work, listen to concerns and goals of participants, and then determine a mutually-agreed-upon path forward for each individual. As each month goes by, I’ll critique assignments and give further guidance. Because I will be working with aspiring artists, we’ll pay particular attention to some of the basics—design, color and finish—and also to process and technique. We’ll even get into the business and marketing side of things as needed.

I invite you to learn more about my program at this link. Besides our monthly sessions, you’ll have a monthly Q&A session with me, access to ongoing chats, and lots more.

I hope you’ll join us! But don’t wait to long, as my mentoring program starts March 10.
