Oxygen Art Centre (OAC) is excited to announce the launch of their new Online Mentorship Program. Beginning in January 2022 OAC will be offering affordable one-on-one online mentorship opportunities for individual artists to receive two 1-hour mentorship sessions with one of OAC’s Faculty.

Each online mentorship will be individually designed to meet the needs and interests of the individual artist, potentially involving technical demonstrations, advice, professional development, and/or critique regarding a specific project or technical area of development.

Organized in a two-session format, each mentorship will allow mentees to begin an area of inquiry in the first session and then can put some of their learning into practice before sharing and discussing their new work or development in the second session.

“This is a new Oxygen educational experience which is very affordable thanks to funding from the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance,” said OAC Education Coordinator, Natasha Smith.

“We encourage artists of all levels to apply and learn from one of our talented and experienced OAC faculty members.”

The program will offer 10 mentorships, as well as 2 youth scholarships. Applications are now open and will remain open until the deadline of November 15, 2021, at 5 p.m. PST. Approved mentees will be matched with an Oxygen Artist Instructor depending on their practice, medium, and stated goals.
