What's a Mentorship?

The difference between a mentorship and technical DIY instruction is: intimacy and customized guidance between the mentor and the mentees. As a mentor, my goal is to support you with every aspect of your artistic pursuit that you can’t get by yourself. 

In the Mastermind Mentorship, I generously share my hard-earned knowledge so you can reach your desired goals specific to YOU. I’ll support you with growing your technical skills, career development, business structure, blind spots, mental blocks, and accountability.

Much like pro athletes receive tailored coaching to help them achieve their goals and improve, artists benefit from this type of personal coaching to accelerate their growth.

Couple this with a small intimate group of like-minded artists determined to grow and holding each other accountable and nothing can stop you!

What do you get?

Weekly 90-Minute Zoom Calls on the 3 Pillars of Artistic Performance:

  • Engage with in-depth discussions and learning sessions every week. A high standard of attendance will be expected. That being said it’s understandable that you can’t make every single call. All calls will be recorded if you can’t attend.

  • Receive personalized guidance and mentorship to boost your artistic journey through the weekly calls and daily in the Facebook group.

Week 1: Mindset Magic

As the saying goes, “You can’t see the label of the jar you’re in.” We all have blocks we need support with to grow to the next level. This pillar covers topics like: 

  • Bust Self Sabotage: Release habits like procrastination and perfectionism. Dive deep into cultivating a resilient and growth-oriented mindset.

  • Overcome creative blocks: negative self-talk, self-doubt, and low esteem.

  • Get Clarity and Focus: Crush your time management and boundary setting. Learn to set goals and stay focused! 

Week 2: Professional Development

To become a recognized successful artist there are skills you must learn to present yourself in a way that garners your work respect and esteem. This pillar covers topics like:

  • Brand presentation: From marketing materials to website to proper presentation of your artwork. 

  • Selling Your Art: Discover how to effectively promote and sell your art in person or online. Learn essential marketing strategies tailored to artists.

  • Building Your Resume: Learn how to enter shows, curate your work, win awards, and gain gallery representation if desired.

Week 3: Artistic Mastery

We don’t know what we don’t know AND one size doesn’t fit all. So this pillar is designed to help you:

  • Identify Your Growth Opportunities: Discover your biggest technical strengths and weaknesses in your artwork and elevate your craft and take your art to the next level of excellence.

  • Find Your Artistic Voice: Receive feedback and guidance on your personal creative process and blocks. Know how to stay in flow artistically and set your goals and projects accordingly.

  • Discover the Missing Information: Learn techniques and approaches to refine your artistic skills through monthly group video critique discussions and strategically targeted teachings and demonstrations based on the group’s GAPS of understanding.

Week 4: Mastermind Collaboration

One key ingredient to success is sharing the journey with supportive peers that can both empathize with you, and CALL YOU to a higher level. This pillar is for the artists to have this experience together without the mentor to:

  • Connect and collaborate with fellow artists in the group.

  • Share experiences, challenges, and successes.

  • Get technical tools, tips, advice and working hours with your peers for your career and business.

Daily Support via Private Facebook Group:

  • Access a supportive community of like-minded artists.

  • Share your progress, ask questions, and receive feedback.

  • Stay motivated and accountable on your artistic journey.

Additional Benefits:

  • 1 year membership to Art Life School included ($1,000 value FREE)

  • Direct access to Kelli for ongoing support and inspiration to help you thrive as an artist.

  • Quarterly one-on-one private call with Kelli to clarify your 90 day action plan! 
  • 50% OFF all Kelli’s in person workshops (offered through her not a third party).

Why do I offer this Mentorship?

I know all the ups and downs of being an artist. I know what it takes to succeed in this field and to reach professional mastery. I also know how hard it can be to go it alone and how limited the typical art education is, even at the college level.

Just as a professional athlete needs coaches and mentors to reach their peak performance, so do artists.

You are truly limitless in what you can accomplish if you have the right people behind you to BELIEVE in and support you.

But it also requires a commitment and investment in yourself.

Who is this for?

Mastermind Mentorship is for any artist who needs a safe place to get help in achieving their goals.

Will you be helping with art business and career advice?

Yes, every month will include a business teaching. You can also get advice on the LIVE coaching call for any topic. You can get help with any business topic from general business details like shipping to marketing to sell online to entering shows to your art instruction business. 

What if I don’t want to be a professional artist?

This is a customized mentorship. It’s not just for artists who want to sell or exhibit their work. Although you will receive the recording of all the teachings and benefit from them including the business ones.

How do you know what I’m working on and what I need help with?

Each week we have accountability posts and posts to collect questions/topics for the teachings in the private Facebook group. It will be up to you to post what you’re working on and ask questions on those posts so I can help you with that. If you don’t participate, I can’t help. This is a Mastermind, not one on one coaching so I won’t help anyone privately via email or messenger. Everything happens in the small private group so everyone can learn from each other. 

How will we communicate?

We’ll be communicating in the private Mastermind Facebook group ongoing and also through zoom video calls.

What if my goal is too big?

I believe big goals are where it’s at. It’s what pushes us to grow faster. When you set a big goal you at least know that if you miss it you came much closer to it than if you set a little goal that doesn’t inspire you. 

What if I can’t make the calls?

Every teaching and call will be recorded for you to review in case one doesn’t fit into your schedule. Critiques and some teachings will be pre-recorded (not live). Coaching call with Kelli, Mastermind calls, and most demonstrations will be LIVE. The recordings will be posted after the LIVE session is complete. 

What is the schedule of the teachings and calls?

1st 3 Tuesdays at 2pm MST all LIVE private group meetings with Kelli

Mindset Week – working on things like mindset, vision, goal setting, planning, time management, confidence building, etc

Marketing Week – Career building working on things like branding, sales, social media, etc

Mastery Week – Working on deepening skillset through zoom call critiques and bonus technique teachings and discussions.

*4th Tuesdays will be group Mastermind brainstorming sessions.

*Kelli may rearrange the schedule as needed.

When am I billed for the Mentorship?

You have two options for payment. One is to pay your tuition in full for the year and the other is a monthly recurring payment for 12 months recurring at the same date monthly.

Can I cancel or get a refund?

Refunds will not be given should you change your mind on participation. This is a big commitment on my part and yours. I’m “all in” and I need you to be “all in” too so we can get the best results.
