Artist Mentor Information
We are dedicated to providing exciting curricula, professional-level materials and studio space, and inspirational arts experiences to all mentees. In order to provide the best possible arts mentoring program for youth now and in the future, we know we need energetic, passionate, and committed Artist Mentors.

Artist Mentors are selected based upon their dedication to the creative growth of young people, their skillset and technical knowledge in a designated arts area, their passion to contributing to an exciting arts community, and the depth of their past teaching and/or mentoring experiences. Most of our Artist Mentors hold at least a Bachelor’s degree, are active artists, designers, and musicians in their field, and demonstrate a positive and selfless personality.

To apply to be an Artist Mentor, email Director of Education and Outreach, Nancy Round, at nround@joslyn.org
