Weekly 1 on 1
We will meet on the mentorship discord for a weekly 60-minute call that you will be able to reserve in advance. I will then go over your assignments, make corrections and explain/demo anything required for that week's topic. I strongly encourage you to ask any kind of art and career-related questions as well.
During the session I will show you how to improve your work by painting over it and explain you my thought process on making certain changes.

Requirements & pricing
As this is not a fundamentals-focused mentorship I will require a portfolio submission to evaluate if this program can be effective for you. While we will cover and reinforce fundamentals, it's required to have some proficiency with the tools and a basic understanding of painting and its principles.The mentorship is a 9-week program priced at 800€(+ VAT for all Italian students and European students who are not in possession of a VAT ID). You will be required to pay at least a deposit in advance, this is to prevent people from filling student slots and then not showing up.
