We are always striving to bring you new and unique learning options to enhance your experience here at the Academy. If you have individual questions or needs throughout your creative journey and need more one-on-one support, we would love to pair you with a mentor who would fit perfectly and work with you intensively. Our mentors have been hand-picked for their passion, knowledge, confidence and beautiful presence here at UA. Please take a moment to review what each mentor offers and then fill out the contact form below. If you would like to request a specific mentor, please do so. If you would like to explain your personality, where you need support, and your learning style, we can partner you with a mentor that we believe fits the bill.

Please note: All mentorships will take place online using a program like Skype, Zoom, Go-to-meeting or likewise. This will allow you to get face-to-face with your mentor, connect and dig deeper into your creative needs.

Mentor fees are $250.00 per hour with a 1 hour minimum.
