What Does a Navigator Do?

Navigators are artists, who are mentored and help other creatives succeed in their artistic journey.

They lead, nurture, and guide creative peers while building partnerships with our Mentors and nourishing relationships with members.

While Navigators build community within their mentorship groups, they also ensure each session runs smoothly and that mentees have a voice in their learning.

Navigators are community buildlers

If you value the importance of community, love seeing others succeed, and want to contribute in a more meaningful way, apply to JOIN our team of Navigators.

Navigators see immense growth in their craft because it allows them to be part of multiple mentorship groups. Give back to our community of artists by sharing your experiences and expertise with members, while having the added support of the Navigator team.

Experience the best of what Mastrius has to offer while accelerating your craft, growing confidence, and building leadership skills.

Why I became a navigator

Annae Jones | Lead Navigator

I came to Mastrius looking to develop my artistic skills, and while I certainly did that, I discovered so much more. I found a life-giving, non-competitive, and supportive community. Building friendships and learning from artists and Mentors from all over the world has seen my art practice grow in leaps and bounds. I found where I belonged and I wanted to help others feel that way, too. 

Becoming a Navigator felt natural to me because I have a strong belief in helping others. I have witnessed the growth of my artistic peers and felt strengthened and supported by this inclusive generous community. Being a Navigator has allowed me to pay it forward.

Mastrius helped accelerate my technical and leadership skills. I also discovered the importance of community. Since joining, I’ve found my artistic voice, and developed both artistic and personal confidence. Before Mastrius, I never would have envisioned myself as a serious artist.

If this resonates with you, then becoming a Navigator may be the right next step in your artistic journey.
