FCA Studio Mentorships
Studio mentorships are your opportunity to work with a professional artist in the Federation Academy on Granville Island. You’ll meet with Paul twice a month throughout October, November and December to work on your paintings, ask questions and further develop your practice.
Invest in yourself and commit to two days per month, and see how your artwork and techniques improve. For artists without their own studio, this is a great way to access a creative space, tailor made for art-making. In addition to 4hrs of mentoring artists will receive an extra 3hrs of access to our classroom space to work on their paintings and communicate with their peers.
With plenty of demonstrations, one-on-one teaching and lively discussion, this mentorship is limited to twelve registrants.
Benefits of Studio Mentorship
6 In-Person Sessions
We start this mentorship program with an evaluation of your current status, as well as an introduction to everyone in the group. Paul will discuss short and long term goals with you, which will define next steps on your artistic journey.
Each consecutive session will be built out based on where everyone is in their work and what their personal ambitions are for attending this mentorship program. Over this 3 month program you will takeaway practical ways to improve and develop your paintings.
About the Instructor - Paul Chizik
Paul Chizik's paintings are rooted in the classical tradition with a contemporary approach. He works in the custom of painting major scale canvasses in the studio as well as the plein-air custom of working directly outdoors in a variety of environments where the natural splendor or raw urban power is immediate. His work ranges from landscapes, to portraiture, figurative narratives and still life. As artist, mentor and teacher Paul hopes to have the art of painting regain its role as an exciting, current and vibrant visual medium with a renewed urgency.
