Artist Mentoring

_VWR8086 (2).jpg

One of our passions is supporting and encouraging other artists. With that in mind, we are pleased to offer professional mentorship to artists who want to build their business and get their art in front of a larger audience. We would be thrilled to design a mentorship program that fits your goals and aspirations. Imagine spending a few hours or a few days in the studio, being able to ask questions, explore ideas and imagine what is possible. With several excellent accommodation options on site, we can design a mentorship retreat specifically for you.


“ I feel safe and supported in Birdsong Studio. I love being able to bounce ideas off of both Heather and Russell.”

“Working, painting and creating with Russell & Heather is always an enjoyable time in the Birdsong studio. You will find a positive environment. They are loving, open-minded with honest and creative discussions. They provide materials and as you create both Russell and Heather have their own way to connect with you, listening to your vision while supporting you as you paint through your art experience. I book with them often and love to go in and be immersed surrounded by Russell & Heather’s paintings and prints hanging in the studio, it gives me the confidence to create as I explore my hidden talent. I highly recommend a visit to the Birdsong Studios.”

“My wife and I had a fabulous weekend stay @ Birdsong Studios. We had the chance to experience the warm hospitality of Heather & Russell and were excited to paint in the studio with them where they shared some amazing advice and knowledge about the Business of Art. Would highly recommend staying and playing at Birdsong anytime.”

“I was gifted a week in the Birdsong Studio Artists Loft with the opportunity to paint and learn from Russell and Heather for 5 full days. What a game-changer. They provided simple, easy tips that have helped shift how I think of my art and how I share it. They encouraged me to begin the process of turning what I love doing into a full-time gig. I am so grateful to these two wonderful people and the difference they are making in sharing their wisdom and talents with the world.”
