Artists Share Knowledge And Experience Through Mentorship

Submitted by Roxanne Carter

As part of the KLAC mandate to support emerging young artists, the Arts Council is looking to establish a Mentorship Program in January 2020. Chosen Mentors must be a registered KLAC member with expertise in one or more art disciplines. A Mentorship application must be completed and submitted with an up to date police check.

Ideal Mentor must be non-judgmental, passionate about the Arts, and enjoy working with young people. A Mentor must have an ability to act as a guide in nurturing the mentee’s artistic vision and aspirations. Preliminary commitment includes a minimum of two one-hour sessions.

Successful applicants will be matched to mentor a high school student selected by Arts department heads of participating local high schools. If interested in this worthwhile volunteer opportunity, please contact Roxanne Carter at 1traac@gmail.com by October 31st.

New Mentors will be announced on November 16th at the ‘Made in Kawartha Lakes Art Show & Sale” Reception at the Colborne Street Gallery in Fenelon Falls.
