IS MENTORING FOR ME?
The creative protégée looking for long-term guidance from a professional artist. You are ready for the commitment to yourself and your creativity but just need some encouragement and accountability along the way.
A mentorship is a commitment to growing yourself as an artist. This will encompass your creative and business development and outcomes will be determined by both you and your mentor together.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
An empowerment and growth plan for your true creative self. You will be expected to co-create a workplan of goals and self-assigned monthly homework. The first 6 months will be lead and guided by your mentor, Kate, the second half of the mentorship you will take the lead.
- Longer length format and more in-depth session than consultations
- Personal one-on-one art and business mentoring
- Active learning and skill-building set at your pace
- A new sense of possibility increased productivity
- Supported creativity and listening from a fellow creative professional
- Affordable mentoring aimed at emerging and mid-career artists
- Accountability, follow-up, and feedback aimed at helping you succeed
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A MENTORSHIP?
A mentor does not need to be in the same medium as you but needs to be someone who can mirror back your potential to you, encourage your creative development, make strategic suggestions and guide you through your artistic and business growth. You must be ready to do the work.
Step 1: Follow your instincts if this option calls to you. Theres a reason why you are still reading about my mentorship options.
Step 2: Ask yourself, where do you see yourself in one year from now, and if you are ready to commit to a strategic and supported creative relationship help you achieve those goals.
Step 3: Reach out for a conversation with Kate to see if a mentorship relationship will be a good fit. Click here for a free discovery call to see if mentoring will be a good fit.

WHAT DO PAST CLIENTS SAY?
“The words cannot pour out fast enough for how much gratitude and respect I have for Kate Renee. I showed up to her studio one afternoon, blank notebook in hand and a frustrated artist, I had major blocks but had no idea; I just wanted to do art. I needed a guru. That’s what it feels like when I meet with Kate, spiritual art guru, mentor, compadre, whatever word might resonate with you choose it. The experience of meeting with her has brought me so much clarity that I had been struggling to find both in terms of my personal, work and artistic life, it finally feels like I am getting my voice back.
In the short time since I arrived at her studio to the moment I am writing this letter, which is about a little over a month, I have acted in the May Day Ceremony, painted, created comics, and most importantly decided to leave an unfulfilling career to jump at an opportunity to assist an artist in residence. We’ve made vision boards, had art therapy time, toured art spaces and set career goals. She gives a name to my big dreams and says yes let’s figure out how to do that. I always leave feeling inspired, stronger and more excited to live my ever unfolding artistic adventure. If you are even questioning it, follow it, it is fun.”
-Laura Korynta, Artist
