Mentor Circles Overview

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED

Mentor Circles offer a unique group learning experience across multiple studios. Each circle will be craft based and focus on a key role within the craft and what it takes to get there.  The Circle leader will be someone who has been successful in that craft and is a great teacher, communicator and group discussion leader.   Through the course of the circle meetings the leader and members will talk about their own experiences, challenges and learnings. Because the goal is to learn from one another, circles are for those who are established in their careers and able to contribute to the learning.

Program Duration: 6 monthly circle meetings plus a kickoff and close out – (8 months total)
