Focussed Mentorships are three-week, three session programs in which a senior artist shares her experience with developing artists. Focused Mentorships may be organized around a theme, formal concern or specific medium. They are designed as an intensive experience to help women in the visual arts develop skills and define their decision-making philosophies, and to provide access to the information, resources and support they need to advance their studio practice.
In a Focussed Mentorship, the Mentor prepares information to share with the group related to the theme of the mentorship; this information might take the form of slide presentations, critical reading or demonstrations. The sessions often take the form of a group critique of the participants work.
