Mentorship Program

Jay Moore Mentorship Program

For the past fifteen, years Jay has been teaching the Mentorship Program helping an artist make the transition from part-time amateur to full-time professional artist.

This six-month live course covers every aspect of how to make a living in fine art from drawing and painting to marketing, and professionalism. Classes are held every other Monday at Jay Moore Studio in Parker, Colorado, easily accessible by Denver International Airport or the interstate.

Class size is limited to only 5 students.

Course structure

Each class is four hours long, and consists of a comprehensive power point lecture, followed by assignments and critiques.

By design, students learn in FOUR ways: 1) Power point lectures: Each class includes a 60-90 minute lecture by Jay on a specific subject. 2) Assignments: designed to students learn the answers by discovery, rather than given the answers. 3) Critiques: During each class, the student will recieve a one-on-one critique of assignments from Jay. 4) Other students: By seeing how the other students complete the assignments, you will learn how others solve the same problem.

“Everything you have taught me has changed my life forever in the most wonderful and unexpected ways! You’re the best Jay!” – Debra Sindt.

“The mentorship was a defining time for me as an artist. Although I had been to art school, during the Jay Moore Mentorship Program was the first time that I really knew that I could make it as a professional artist. Finding that confidence gave me the courage to chase my dream wholeheartedly.” ~David Grossman,

“I did a six-month Mentorship with him, and that just moved me forward from what I was doing wrong. He was instrumental in showing me how to improve my craft.” ~Lori Forest (Exerpt from March/April 2017 Art of the West article)

“As an artist trying to find my way in the art market, the Jay Moore Mentorship Program was the answer for me. The 6 months that I spent with Jay Moore was an intense and eye-opening experience. He prepared me like a professional athlete breaking down all the elements of a painting from values to brush stroke. Jay Moore is a role model for any artist who is trying to balance life and the dream of being a professional painter.” ~Jennifer Johnson

“This Mentorship has been a turning point in my path as an artist. I don’t see how it could have been better organized or presented…far exceeded my expectations.”~Sydney Springer

“There is no other master artist today who has developed such a teaching method that elevates your mind, your confidence, your skills, your art, your soul and yourself.”~Bette Ann Albert

“This was truly a high quality investment in my art career.”~Maxine Jenner

“There is a lot of information, like taking a four year program in six months. Lots of good “Powerful Practices” that I can do over and over to help me improve my skills. There are really good insights into what it takes to be a successful artist.””~Rebecca Mc Clive
