- After this phonecall, Lauren (MAC Manager) will devise a mentoring package with you to suit your needs.
- You can also book the private coaching packages offered below.
- Coaching may also include ‘homework’ and regular email communication and support from your mentor.
- Sessions can be scheduled face-to-face, or remotely via Skype.

Feedback from our students
“Meeting with Marco provides me with the opportunity to review my work, to discuss what’s working while also identifying areas of difficulty and exploring future directions in my practice.
Marco’s mentoring perspective is affirming, informed and insightful. Well prepared for each mentoring session, Marco gives his full attention to the conversation, engaging with questions that arise from my current work.
Marco urges me past my tightly held safe and comfortable zones with an approach which means I have no option than to challenge myself; to go deeper and ‘bigger’ each time I approach the canvas.
Being mentored in this supportive environment is highly recommended for any artist wanting to push further and leave the ‘stuck’ places behind.“
