mentoring program

The National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society is committed to helping member artists advance their artistic skills as part of our mission.  The mentoring program is designed to help member artists by pairing artists and mentors for critique and education sessions.

  • The mentoring service is available to all current NOAPS member artists at no charge.

  • Artists who are interested may apply with the application form below, and send to Cheng Lian at chenglian@gmail.com

  • Artists are paired with a mentor based on their genre and style.  The artist will be given 2-3 mentors from which to choose.  The artist and the mentor will then communicate to set up their session.

  • Artists may be paired with a maximum of two different mentors per year.

  • The mentoring experience with each mentor is limited to two mentoring sessions, a maximum of 30 minutes each time.

  • The mentoring session may be held via a conference network such as Zoom, or via email if no conference network is available.

  • Mentors are available on a first come, first serve basis, so artists are encouraged to apply early.

  • Artists are encouraged to provide feedback on their mentoring experience.

Help NOAPS promote its mentoring program, share your mentoring experience on your Facebook / Instagram page and tag your Mentor and NOAPS.
