Team Building Experiences

Whether it is a company outing, a field trip for your class or a family vacation experience the Arts Center can put together the right teacher and studio with the right group for a creative learning opportunity.


The mentoring program at the School of the Arts can take many different forms guiding the student that has studied the basics of their craft and is ready to take it to another level. This could be a series of private lessons with a particular instructor designed to achieve a particular goal. Mentoring sessions might have an exhibition or a portfolio as a goal or a student might wish to study a particular technique or subject matter. Sessions could involve hands-on work or could be structured as critique sessions. Mentoring can provide valuable feedback about how to develop your own unique personality as an artist.

According to Vince Fazio, Executive Director of the Center and long time Director of the School of the Arts, “A critique may be of great value to a developing artist. Many artists have a very broad knowledge base and though they may work in a particular style they might provide a surprising perspective on your work that gives a fresh appreciation of possibilities.”

The price for the program varies depending on individual student needs. Those interested should contact Vince Fazio, Executive Director to schedule a meeting to discuss your goals. 928.282.3809
