What is a Mentor?
A mentor is an individual who acts as an advisor providing expertise and professional knowledge.
A mentor is available to their mentee to offer advice, provide support and answer questions.
A mentor is different than a coach. Mentors use their personal and professional experiences to help guide others looking to follow a similar path. An artist’s mentor will help mentees with their career growth, improving skills, and reaching professional goals. This may involve; training, critique sessions, social media, marketing, business or organizational help.
A coach works with an artist to help uncover blocks and make mindset shifts. Find out more about coaching here.
Often artists can benefit from a combination of coaching and mentoring.
