Everyone has their own reasons for joining AAG, but a big reason many people join is to find someone who can help them learn how to be a successful artist.
You can help new members by volunteering to give one on one advice in areas of your expertise.
Suggested areas you may be able to give advice in:
Oil painting techniques/materials
Acrylic painting techniques/materials
Framing/matting of artworks
Pricing of artwork
Digital Art techniques
Send your name and areas of expertise to firstname.lastname@example.org, in order to be paired with one mentee for a period of no more than one year. Mentees who apply to participate will be matched with an appropriate mentor. Mentees will be permitted to contact the mentor by either email or phone, but will be allowed no more than one per week, unless both agree to allow more contact for a defined period of time. The relationship may be ended by either party at any time, and is solely for the purpose of exchanging information related to being an artist.
Send your name and area you desire help with to email@example.com. You will then be put in contact with a mentor. Once in contact with a mentor you will be able to either phone or email them no more than once a week for a period of up to one year. At the end of the year, you will have to request to be paired with a new mentor. The relationship between mentor and mentee is solely for the exchange of information related to being an artist and this relationship maybe ended by either party at any time.
