Learn at Your Own Pace
Starting wherever you are in your artistic journey, from complete beginner to intermediate painter, we look at your past and current work and identify pathways for new departures and possibilities for growth. The goal is to put you on a path that feels personal, authentic, and meaningful to you. It happens through dialogue, creative exercises, critiques, and customized “homework” assignments that support goals you set for yourself.
As the session continues, the dialogue revolves around your developing work. Each session builds from the last as we identify and bolster core strengths, establish and work towards goals we set, and address any challenges or mind-blocks getting in the way of making your best work.
This kind of support is what most group classes and workshops cannot offer. Workshops comprise a diverse group of talents and experience, so teachers usually end up by necessity teaching some form of technique. Obviously, technique is important, but after a while one understands it’s only half the game.
Online mentoring is for beginners as well as working (and aspiring!) artists looking to shape their creative practice, to develop a personal style, create a distinctive and coherent body of work, and/or establish or grow a professional art business or career. Creative exercises, prompts, and a supportive check-in deadline each week can really keep you on task and at the easel.
I’ll help you to get started, charge ahead, ask new questions, and help you objectively judge your finished work by entirely new criteria, such as honesty, content, and relevant technique.
This Kind of Coaching Works for Any Kind of Creative Project – any and all media are welcome.
