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 Liza throughout September, 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 nine 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. Liza 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.
