The Seniors Mentoring Project officially relaunched last week, and is now accepting new mentees.

The Seniors Mentoring Project is geared towards artists on dA who would like to better their skills and become a more educated artist. Senior Members of dA (the mentors) work with mentees (people who are getting mentored) on a one-on-one basis to answer any questions they may have, and help them improve their artwork all together.

If you find a mentor you work well with, the relationship can have huge benefits in pushing your art forward. Having someone dedicated to giving you feedback and advice, working one to one, is very different from a tutorial in that it can provide pinpointed personalized help just where you need it most. The SMP works to harness some of the the human resources we have at dA, and partner artists to share knowledge. The mentors cover the spectrum of disciplines at dA so whatever your medium of choice is, there should be someone able to help you.

Many members of the admin crew here at Resurgere happen to be Senior Members, and several of us have joined seniormentors. Maybe you'll end up being mentored by one of us!

It would be best to apply soon, before all the mentors have taken pupils, but take your time filling out the application! The art and description you send when applying is what all the mentors will use to decide if they want to take you on or not, so make it good!

You should also visit seniormentors's F.A.Q. page and learn more about the project before you apply.

Critique Chat Event

Each month seniormentors will be holding a Critique Event in the #seniors chatroom.

The first one will be held on February 6th (a Saturday!) at 1PM Eastern Standard Time (Find Your Local Time Here). Each following event will be held on the first Saturday of each month.

that would be great but i don't have a way of even scanning my best artwork to share so my mentor wouldn't be able to see how they helped me. :\ working on buying a scanner

this is a great oppurtunity
