Learn under the guidance of owner and artist, Kate Ashton. Kate brings her years of experience in making a living as an artist to this amazing group of artists.
There are many talented art teachers, but few who are called to teach, to mentor, and to assist artists in taking their art to the marketplace. Being with an extraordinary arts community has been a great inspiration.
Kate was honored to be one of the finalists chosen by "Professional Artists Magazine," as Mentor of the Year and placed 12th in the nation.
The prerequisite for artist mentorship is Intro to Acrylics. There is no application process for mentorship; artists are eligible to undergo a private interview process once the prerequisite has been met.
Artists looking to join this small, "tight-knit" group can begin to prepare for the interview process by having a body of work ready to show and knowing where they would like to go in their career.
Mentorship requires an initial six-month commitment before proceeding in the program on a month-to-month basis.
