There is no requirement for age, education level or practice. The mentoring sessions are guided by the participating artist in terms of identifying what support is needed. To make best use of time, artists will be asked to bring a specific question to the session. This can cover, for example, critical feedback on work, preparation for a professional portfolio review, help with an artists’ statement, practical advice on surviving as an artist, or support in preparing for an exhibition or new commission.
