My name is Emily Pan and I’m an Illustration student. My experience with the Mentorship Program offered at ArtCenter was very beneficial. By having guidance by a professional artist working within the field, I got to learn a spectrum of things that I've never known about the industry.
With my mentor, Francisco Mora, we established a personal project that was aimed to help me deliver my own story along with its own cast of characters. With consistent communication, I got to learn a lot about how to go about creating a piece. Learning and understanding the process was essential to self-improvement as well as growth.
I was also fortunate enough to be able to visit the studio in which my mentor worked in. Not only was I able to get an idea of what the working place would look like, I was also able to speak to the other artists and learn about their own personal experiences in the field. Overall, I highly recommend this program to any student who'd like to have a deeper insight within the field that they're pursuing. The relationship developed as well and the feedback has been wonderful and a great experience all in all!
