Though my mentorship with Carolee Clark will be ongoing, it’s time to begin a new Mentorship for the 2014-2015 season.
When we developed the mentorship program, I had no way of knowing how it would work out. I wanted to work one-on-one with an artist to help work through the challenges an artist faces in dealing with the business side of their art career. I had no idea how effective this kind of interaction could be. We decided to make the mentorship broadcasts public so that other artists could follow along – again, I had no idea how well the broadcast aspect of the program would work.
In short, the entire experience went better than I could have possibly imagined. Not only was it great working with Carolee Clark, but a community sprang up around the mentorship where the artists who were following along were able to interact with me, with Carolee, and with one another. I’ve had great feedback from participating artists, and our opening for Carolee was a great success.
Now, I would like to ask those of you who participated to share what you thought of the experience. I would love to hear the impact Xanadu’s mentorship had on you and your art business, and what you thought of the experience.
Please leave your thoughts, comments and testimonials in the comments section below. Please note that I may quote you in promoting the next Mentorship. Thanks in advance for your feedback on the Xanadu Mentorship program!
