Nicole Young has a BFA with a major in painting and drawing and a minor in art history and visual culture. She has worked as a curator for the Arts Council of the Central Okangan, and has been working as a professional artist for 3 years. While Nicole primarily creates abstract paintings, her education has given her a wide range of knowledge in a variety of art forms. Her goal is to share her knowledge with others, as she believes that everyone has the capacity for creativity and to thrive through art making. These sessions are tailored to the needs of each individual, making them perfect for all levels of artistic ability. The topics up for discussion are completely up to you.

In person Session - 1 hour, $70 CAD

This one on one coaching session will take place either at my studio at the New Arts Collective in downtown Kelowna, or as a studio visit in your studio space. The topics of discussion are completely up to you! I can offer you feedback on your work, your studio habits, your creative process, and anything else you would like help with. Together we will create a game plan to help you move forward in your art practice and career based on your goals and interests. You will leave this session with fresh perspective, ideas and inspiration. I can follow up with a 15 minute phone call 1 to 2 weeks later to discuss your progress and any other concerns that may have come up.

skype session - 1 hour, $60 CAD

This service is essentially the same as the in person session, but done over Skype for those who don't live in the Okanagan or would simply prefer to discuss their art from the comfort of their own home.  During your session, we will examine your work together and discuss your strengths and weaknesses, your studio habits, literature and online resources that you may find useful, and anything else that you would like to focus on. We will then create a plan to help you move forward in your art practice. You will gain fresh ideas and a new direction through this process. I can follow up with a 15 minute phone call 1 to 2 weeks later to discuss your progress and any other concerns that may have come up.

Creative coaching + the studio package - $150 CAD 

This package is the full deal for both amateur and professional artists looking to enhance their art making practice! It will be preceded by a 15 minute phone call where we will discuss your goals and what you hope to learn from your creative coaching session. During your session we will examine your work together and discuss your strengths and weaknesses, aesthetics, your studio habits, creative process and anything else that you would like to focus on. I can teach you specific painting techniques if that's what you're interested in, or we can focus on shifting your work in a new direction or creating a body of work to exhibit. Together we will create a plan to help you move forward in your art practice. You will leave the session with fresh ideas, perspective and a new direction! The difference between this and the regular creative coaching session is that within 2 weeks of your session, a package will be shipped to you (or delivered if you're in Kelowna) that will contain new art materials for you to try selected by me, as wall as additional lessons, suggestions, creative techniques and studio practices to enhance your artistic practice.  I can follow up with a 15 minute phone call 1 to 2 weeks later to discuss your progress and any other concerns that may have come up. These sessions will take place either at my studio for those who live in the Okanagan, or over Skype for those who do not. All of these sessions are tailored to individual artists and their needs, no two are alike.
