The SA+C mentors artists and craftspeople through two programs: the One-on-One Mentor Program and the Virtual Mentor Program.
The One-on-One Mentorship Program, launching in 2024, supports emerging artists and craftspeople on their journey to mastery and professional success by working directly with a mentor in their field. It centers on building studio best practices and refining professional practices needed to succeed in today’s highly competitive environment. Areas covered will include running a fine craft business; helping set up, maintain, or expanding a business; finding and applying for grants and fellowships; social and community practices, and more.
The Virtual Mentor Program is a virtual educational series that offers participants access to some of the most exciting people working in art, design, and craft today. The Society presents speakers on a range of topics, from art business management to thought-provoking and inspirational presentations about the value that craft brings to the world. Join us to learn first-hand from experts who can help advance your career and to discover the incredible and diverse ways craft impacts professionals in the arts and beyond!
Membership in the SA+C community is preferable but not required. The SA+C is committed to serving the maker/crafts community, regardless of financial capacity.
