The mentorship program is designed to support students in the creation of their own work. Mentorship is a fusion of a regular workshop and a traditional guild practice. Working along side a professional in a creative and supportive environment helps students learn how to structure their time, troubleshoot their paintings and refine their skills and techniques.

The day is broken up into a morning and afternoon session. Each session starts with a discussion, critique and plan for the session. Dominique works along side the students on her own work. If students do not have their own projects to work on then Dominique will help students design a painting project and schedule. Maximum 3 students per mentorship 

Daily Schedule:
Morning Session 9am- 12:00pm
Lunch 12:00- 12:30pm
Afternoon Session 12:30- 3:30pm.
