Contemporary Fine Art Mentoring

Contemporary Fine Art Practice

Contemporary Fine Art Practice is a new online programme designed to build, support and ultimately strengthen your artistic-practice through a bespoke and therefore individualised programme. The Contemporary Art Practice programme is a melting pot of minds and creative energy, an easily accessible and convenient platform designed to encourage experimentation and innovation in the field of Contemporary Art Practice.

The course will help you to develop the issues, discussions and contextual nuances relevant to your practice. Through one-on-one mentoring sessions your practice will be analysed and bespoke/individualised advice will be offered. These suggestions will be designed to help you to open up new pathways for investigation and strengthen already existing positive elements. You will be guided by thoughtful professional artists and experienced academics who will discuss the conditions, questions and contexts appropriate within international art discourse and how these might relate to your work. We aim to build a dialogue and atmosphere that will push you to produce work that challenges the boundaries of fine art – ultimately helping you to grow as a practicing artist, forging new connections between your practice and the channels and networks that will allow you to flourish.
The course is about receiving good quality and timely advice and acting on it. It is a ten-month course which is challenging yet manageable. We aim to build a friendly and supportive, yet critically sensitive atmosphere.
This course is appropriate and relevant to artists looking for an alternative to MA or BA studies as well as being relevant to candidates who are post MA, who want to either refresh their practice or re-establish discourse and connections.
The programme will provide you with monthly tutorials (usually via video call but other methods can be arranged such as studios visits *at an slightly higher cost). Our mentors will respond to the images of your new work you will send them, giving you a personal response that will focus on improving your work, your knowledge of the field and understanding of professional practice. They may also comment directly on how you might expand your research and offer bespoke technical and conceptual guidance.
*For an additional payment learning can be enhanced by activating a "studio tutorial call-out" at an affordable rate. This option allows you to book a mentor to come and speak with you in your studio. (*at present this is offered to students based in London, Glasgow, Stockholm and Brighton only – and they are subject to agreement by the mentors based in those cities).
