Art Mentorship FAQs

Art Mentorship is best suited for portfolio students, independent learners, and advanced studies. Students learn what they choose at their own pace in this goals oriented program. Personal learning goals are set with the Artist Mentor during the first class, and lessons are designed to meet those goals.


Mentorship is appropriate for students who are:

  • comfortable discussing their artwork and seeking critique / feedback

  • responsible for working on their artwork independently

  • looking for guidance or career advice from industry professionals

Art mentors are professional working artists and industry experts who are passionate teachers and coaches. Our mentors specialize in illustration, design, painting, animation, digital art, concept art, sculpture, 3D modelling and more!

Their goal is to help motivate, inspire, and coach you to be successful on your own creative journey — whether you are deciding on an art school, switching careers, or leveling up on your creative hobby.

Yes, Art Mentorship is the ideal course for high school students pursuing visual arts at the post-secondary level, or for elementary school students applying to specialized high school art programs (such as the Arts Unionville Program at UHS).


Artist Mentors will show students how to create an outstanding portfolio based on the program requirements they are applying to. Students will learn what to include - and what to cut - while also developing their unique personal style and solidifying key skills such as life drawing. We know what the top art schools like OCAD University and Sheridan are looking for and can help students prepare a cohesive, stand out portfolio suited for each school's requirements.
