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 endeavour 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 establish 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.
