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 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.
