 TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR ARTISTS…

Leveling Up has been a godsend for me as an aspiring artist. It has provided a clear path on how to improve. It is so great to meet like minded artists and its a bonus when they live close by!

Carey

Aspiring Artist

I still have so much to go, but LU has opened my mind and taught me things I had no idea about in regards to art and being an artist. Not only do the instructors care and do their best to adapt to an online environment, but the navigators and other member artists are supportive and willing to share their ideas and knowledge. Thank you LU for accelerating my artistic journey and giving me a place of belonging!

Annae

Aspiring Artist

LevellingUp has done wonders for my confidence. I have managed to step way outside of my comfort zone which has in turn given rise to so many more opportunities to further my art career.

Deb

Emerging Artist

The group I’m in is so supportive, knowledgeable, and intentional in growth and encouragement. Being part of LevellingUp has had a hugely positive impact on my focus, growth, and success as an artist. I’ve been privileged to learn from expert mentors and highly professional artists while gaining friends and community. LU offers incredible value through ongoing workshops, live demos, and panel discussions. I’m so excited to see where the journey leads next!

Jen

Emerging Artist

LevellingUp has really boosted my confidence and skills as an artist. I am no longer figuring it out alone, I have 7 others in it with me and lots of Yodas to guide us!

Barbara

Emerging Artist

I loved having a group to talk things out with, feedback from the master, and the community we built in our group. The extra sessions offered by other masters were amazing too.

Being an artist can be lonely, and often you don’t know what to do to grow, LevellingUp solved both of those!

Kim

Emerging Artist

Learned an entirely new way to paint and approach the painting process.

Anonymous

Aspiring Artist

Probably what I learned the most is how to be brutally strict with myself and know the big gap between me and a master. Once I saw the gap I was able to ask the master how to advance. It’s refreshing to have a personal guide.

Sergio

Emerging Artist

It was excellent in all ways!

Anonymous

Emerging Artist

LevellingUp provides networking opportunities that are very helpful. Access to the Master Artists willing to support upcoming ones is a rare find, thank you.

Anonymous

Emerging Artist

LU has opened up new possibilities for me. The opportunity to learn and share the journey with others is inspiring.

David

Aspiring Artist

I learned way more in this course than I did when I was in art school. The combination of developing technical skills and discussing practical business practices is valuable for an artist.

Patricia

Emerging Artist

I’ve decided that I am learning too much from LevellingUp to quit!

Lynne

Emerging Artist

I very much like your staff: quick to reply and answer any questions we have. Look forward to joining you in the future.

Otto

Emerging Artist

LevellingUp provided me insight into how other artists approach their work. It also gave me the opportunity to network with people who shared similar interests as mine and learn from them.

Lisa

Aspiring Artist

Sometimes you are in the right place at the right time. Or scrolling through social media at the right time. It was my good fortune to stumble upon Julie DeBoer and answer a zoom invitation about interest in an online art community. That meeting in July 2020 provided me with an opening to an art community like no other. LevellingUp enabled me to have access to the masters and other aspiring artists; many of whom became friends. I wouldn’t be where I am today without their mentorship, support, and push. For that, I am eternally grateful.

Pam

Emerging Artist

You & Julie have really developed a wonderful community. Thank you for inviting me to be part of it.

Veronica

Master

I benefited tremendously from the whole experience of being in this Aspiring Artist group; the mastermind expertise, the group interaction, the homework exercises. My painting has improved so much and I am beginning to find my style.

Suzanne

Aspiring Artist

I joined the @levellingup Mastermind group with @artistheatherpant a few months ago and it’s been amazing to connect with and learn from @artistheatherpant, @heatherkinahanart, and all the other artists! It’s been such a rewarding experience, particularly living in a remote community during covid times. It’s so nice to share your artistic journey with others.

Niki

Emerging Artist

I ♥️ belonging to the @levellingup community. It’s been amazing connecting with other artists, learning together from the masters as well as each other. So many wonderful, supportive friendships have formed & I look forward to the day when I get to paint with all my new artist friends. I can’t wait to see where this all takes us!! ⁠⁠

Heather

Navigator

LevellingUp gave me exactly the boost I needed to understand how to market and sell my work. I made invaluable connections and the support was amazing.

Lori

Emerging Artist

My LU experience has been amazing. I love sharing with my group and the support I get in return. Our monthly meetings and chat in between are such a great resource for me, and I have met wonderful, supportive people at every turn. It motivates me to make art and to try new things with my business. I learn from my group’s experiences too- what has worked or not for them. I look forward to our meetings and always learn something new. It’s great to be a part of this community!

Anonymous

Emerging Artist

Signing up for Veronica’s group was the best decision I made towards my art career. The group is amazing and Veronica is very encouraging and full of info to share! Janice our navigator is awesome. We just had our 1st informal group meeting yesterday and it felt great to have other artists to talk to.

Ana

Emerging Artist

Mark’s work is so incredible, but he’s so humble about it. His process is different than mine, but his angle, his method, his way of seeing things are fantastic. That’s why I’m here—not to paint as he does, but to learn by osmosis. In my opinion, people should be jumping all over his class

Holly

Professional Artist – Mark Heine's Group

LevellingUp has helped me immensely with my confidence in showing up for my own work, continuing to make art on my own terms, and unapologetically so. It has been such an honor learning from one of Canada’s best contemporary artists, Julie Himel. It’s been one of the best investments I’ve made for myself and my art career.

Aggie

Emerging Artist

The reason I joined LevellingUp is that I have learned that there is so much to be gained from the experience of others, not just from this instructor but from the other participants. If someone is willing to share their lessons learned with you, why wouldn’t you want to seize that opportunity?

Lisa

Aspiring Artist

I’ve been getting mentored by @artistheatherpant @levellingup and I’m loving it! I’ve learned SO MUCH, not only from my mentor but from my group. (I feel like networking has been difficult and this has given me a venue to network and ask the many pressing questions that I have had) I’m finally meeting other artists like me and getting encouragement, support, & feedback that’s really making a difference.

Niki

Emerging Artist

Sometimes taking a chance turns out to be one of the BEST things that happen to you.“LevellingUp was that “chance” for me, and I couldn’t be happier. Teaming up with a Master Artist and new art friends was the push I needed to move into the art world. I’ve learned SO MUCH, not only from my mentor but from my group. I’m expanding my art community and getting encouragement, support, & feedback that’s really making a difference. I’ve not only joined my second group with LevellingUp but one of their moderators Heather Kinahan just gave a presentation to artists on some tips and tricks on promoting art on social media. Love it!

Pam

Emerging Artist

I joined the LevellingUp community as a participant in & facilitator for their Artist Mastermind+ program. I already feel this has been a turning point in my life as an artist. It’s too early to tell where it’s all going to lead, however, the possibilities are very exciting.🙌🙌🙌⁠It’s only been four months, yet I’ve learned so much from both the Master Artists mentoring the groups, as well as my peers. Plus the connections I have made are amazing!! It’s been great chatting with fellow artists, sharing our journeys, goals, worries & successes. It’s all about artists supporting artists!⁠♥️⁠

Heather

Emerging Artist / Navigator

LevellingUp has provided me with a way to network with artists in a way I didn’t know existed. The community that has emerged has been very beneficial in taking my art to the next level. And having a circle of art friends has been very encouraging. I’d highly recommend LevellingUp to other artists.

Pamela

Emerging Artist

We created a warm community of like-minded artists challenging and supporting each other in goal setting and accomplishments achieved.

Diana

Emerging Artist

Creating connections with other artists and learning from accomplished Masters has helped me find a better path for my own work.

Jodi

Emerging Artist

LevellingUp has afforded (literally! It’s affordable!) me the opportunity to truly accelerate my learning as an artist. Having access to direct instruction and feedback from a Master has probably cut at least a couple of years of fumbling around with YouTube tutorials and trying to discern “the good, the bad, and the pointless ” of the journey to my goals.

Martin

Hobbyist Artist

The first thing that drew me to the concept was being able to connect with other artists on the same journey and being mentored by someone who had already gone through that journey. Being an artist is quite a solitary endeavor and as I am just starting out I thought it would be a way to meet other artists and have a continued connection with them through the program. And then having access to the knowledge of an established artist to guide me in my journey shortening my learning curve is wonderful. I would not have the courage to reach out to any of these artist mentors so I am very grateful to have the opportunity to do it here.

Mavis

Emerging Artist

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I start?
Pick your level, then pick your Master.

Choose the group level – aspiring or emerging – that best matches where you are at in your artist journey. Aspiring artists are generally focused on developing their signature style, and want to focus on technique, materials, colour and composition. Emerging artists are generally focused on making their passion a profitable career, and want to focus on sales and marketing, achieving technical excellence, and making their studio time efficient.

After picking your level, choose the Master Artist who aligns with your medium, your subject matter, and who personally resonates with you. You’ll be spending a lot of time with your Master, so make sure you choose a Master who you believe will truly help you.

Why am I being charged for my Mastermind Session before we meet?
Your membership is always “forward looking”.

 

Your registration today gives you access to your Mastermind Group for a one-month period, and payment is required before your session just like a typical workshop or course. Your membership will renew each month on the same date as your initial registration, and you can cancel anytime through the My Account portal.
Membership guarantees you one of the 8 seats in your Group. It includes:
  • a 2-hr live & interactive group mentoring session with your Master
  • access to your private discussion board on LUchat, so you can:
    • get to know the Navigator and the other artists in your group
    • suggest topics for your Master to address in an upcoming monthly session
    • support each other’s work on the assigned homework
If the Group has met previously, you can access the last session’s recording to review what the Master taught, and discover the homework that was assigned.
What is the curriculum?
The curriculum is not pre-decided, and your individual needs will determine what your Master teaches you.
After you register for your Mastermind group, we’ll email a Member Profile form for you to fill out. In this form you’ll tell us about your goals, your challenges, your current skills – all the stuff your Master needs to know to be able to help you out.

Before meeting you, your Master will review your form to understand how to best help you. The curriculum is not pre-decided. The mentoring and training your Master Artist will provide depends on what YOU need to learn. It will be tailored specifically in response to what you’ve told us about YOUR goals and challenges.

What happens in a Mastermind Group?
LevellingUp’s Mastermind groups are high-impact apprenticeship communities.

There are a maximum of 8 Member artists in each Mastermind group, plus a Navigator facilitator, plus the Master.

Your group meets with your Master Artist once monthly for a 2 hour live mentoring session using Zoom. Between monthly sessions, you get support and encouragement from your artist peers on LevellingUp’s private discussion board, LUchat.

During the first hour of each monthly session the Master provides feedback on the homework you completed since your last session. The second hour of each session is spent in new teaching, with the teaching focused on what your Master feels you need to know next to progress on your artist journey. Every session ends with a homework assignment related to the teaching.

Since there is no homework to review in the first session, the first hour of the first Mastermind session typically has the Master ensuring they fully understand the needs of each Member. This time is also a great opportunity for you to get to know the other artists in the group.

Our Members tell us the safe community their group provides gives them the encouragement and support essential to venture out into new territory.

What happens between my monthly mentoring sessions?
Between monthly sessions you share your progress, get help from your peers, and celebrate & encourage each other on LUchat.

LUchat is a discussion board that we’ve built specifically for our artists. There’s an area on LUchat that’s completely private to your group, and your Navigator will also be there to connect with you. Recordings of every monthly session are also posted on LUchat just in case you miss a session or want to review the discussion.

Your group’s Master will not generally connect on LUchat. The availability of a world-class Master Artist is extremely limited, so take full advantage of the face-to-face monthly live videoconference sessions. Your
Navigator will bring questions raised by the group on LUchat to your Master, ensuring your needs are addressed in the monthly sessions.

How long do I stay with a Master?
After 4-6 months, your group is welcome to invite a different Master Artist to come and mentor you.

By bringing in a new Master, your learning journey never needs to grow stale, and you can access the wealth of experience our many different Masters have to offer.

Changing out your group’s Master is optional, and your Navigator will help you through this process.

What do I get for my money?

Our Members tell us they discover 4 key benefits at LevellingUp:

  1. You get to know (and to be known by) and become part of the community of a successful & skilled Master Artist
  2. You’ll develop skills – both technical and business – in just a few months that otherwise would have taken years, if not decades
  3. With face-to-face conversation and feedback on homework assignments, you’ll learn quickly how to take your artwork from good to excellent
  4. You get to connect daily with a safe and trusted community of your fellow artists, giving and receiving encouragement, helpful ideas, and opportunities to network
What is a LevellingUp Navigator?
Your Navigator is a growing artist just like you, and is provided by LevellingUp to ensure your group operates well, and to ensure your learning needs are met.

Every group includes a Navigator. Navigators are not Master Artists, and are also benefiting from the Master’s mentorship. As fellow artists, they understand your challenges and successes. As experienced facilitators, they’re well equipped to ensure your group runs well and you get full value from your time at LevellingUp.

Some of the things your Navigator does are:

  • Ensure the monthly sessions run on schedule, and everyone gets a chance to speak and share
  • Support the Master with preparation
  • Help everyone with the technology
  • Help your group select a new Master (your Navigator will stay with your group after your Master changes)
Can I join a group that has already started?
If a group has space available, you can join anytime.

That means the group you’re joining may have already been meeting for a while. Don’t worry that you’ll feel left out or left behind! Your Navigator will be sure to bring you up to speed – and because mentoring is all about responding to your personal needs, the Master will work very hard to ensure your questions are addressed.

How does the billing work? What am I committing to?
Your Mastermind group membership is billed monthly, and there is no minimum commitment.
We do encourage Members to plan to spend at least 6 months at LevellingUp, as it takes time for your skills to grow and for meaningful community to develop.

The monthly billing is automatic, and you have access to your account so you can cancel anytime.

What happens if I’m not happy?
We truly want LevellingUp to give you the support you need, so if you find your first choice of level or of Master isn’t a great fit, we’re happy to help you move into a different group.

In case its ever needed, we also offer a 90 day full money back guarantee.

I'm very nervous about others seeing my work - even the people in my Mastermind group. Do I have to share? {watch video}

TAKING YOUR TALENT TO THE NEXT LEVEL IS TOUGH TO DO ON YOUR OWN.

Whether you’re honing your unique style or approaching galleries with your work, you don’t have to go it alone. I had the good fortune to get the leg-up I needed to launch my art career early on. And now I’m determined to give every artist that same opportunity, through affordable access to Master Artists who are eager to mentor, train, and share their expertise with growing artists.

And since community & support are vital, we do it all in trusted small, supportive groups.

Join a high-trust Mastermind+ Group for artists to experience for yourself the game-changing power of peer-to-peer learning AND the motivating, POSITIVE PRESSURE of mentoring, from an established, successful, career artist, who has walked the road before you.

I look forward to joining you and curating your experience so that you can overcome the obstacles that keep you from reaching your goals.
