Artists Up is partnering with Mentorly to launch an expanded online mentorship program for Washington artists.

about mentorly


Mentorly is an online arts mentorship platform providing opportunities to connect with emerging and professional artists from around the world.

about the scholarship


Artists Up is pleased to offer Mentorly Scholarships to artists living in Washington State who would like to elevate their practice, learn more about a certain skill, or explore a new field by receiving one-on-one coaching from another artist.

The scholarship covers four, one-hour-long online sessions with an Artist Up mentor.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts


This program has been paused while Artists Up engages in a strategic planning process during 2024. Please check back in 2025 for more information about this and future programs.
