Happy new year everyone! It's your Founder, Page, here. It's been slow for us this past year, but I think that there are so many things we could be doing to make this group even better! Please peruse the ideas below, and comment your ideas below!

First off, I noticed that the Twitter widget is free for us now as a non-core group - so I think it would be a really fun thing if we created a twitter account for our group! We could do promts, post resources, and generally have a platform to be more active on a smaller scale. Any other ideas are welcome! If you'd like to be an admin of our Twitter, please send an application to me as a note. Co-founders will have priority if they want to be admins. We'll probably be having around 5.

I'd love as well for us to have a few monthly features. A featured piece of artwork from one Mentor and one Mentee, and a blog post about a certain style of art, how to improve, resources, etc. We could rotate writers with a few constant pepople, and guest mentors, people from around the dA community, etc. I'd love vonenteers to head organize this as well as being the default blog writers.

Other things, I might like to change the formats of our Mentor/Mentee lists, having fewer art thumbnails, and maybe a one-two line description from the member about themselves. I think this would cut down on the length of the pages, make it easier for Mentor/Mentee pairing to happen, and weed out the non-serious members.

Thank you all and happy Mentoring!

Do you guys have a more current list of mentees, or perhaps a feature for the newer mentee members? I ask because I was thinking about signing on as a mentor, but just about every mentee that I was interested in on the list had long become inactive on dA.

Hello there, it's been a while

I came here to ask for help, I'm on the Mentor list, and although I tried to be a good one, I have next to no idea how to be a proper mentor, so I'd like to know if you could share some tips on this matter.

My main concern is that I have no logical line of work on this, like where to start, how much to cover on a given theme (i.e. anatomy, volume, shadows/lights) and how to keep in touch with my mentees because I don't want them to feel like I'm just pressing them yet I'm sure they feel left alone by now.

Experiences and tips are most welcome, thanks in advance!

excuse me, is this group still active??
PageOHaraWriter Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2017  Student General Artist
Yes it is, even if it may not seem like it. A great majority of our activity takes place between out members and not on the group page.

Can I be a mentee?
PageOHaraWriter Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2017  Student General Artist
Yes, absolutely! I would ask you to submit an application and contact some mentors you thin would be a good match for you.
