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.

At Mastrius, members come for the Mentor and stay for the Community!

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.

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

Many of our Navigators see immense growth in their craft because being a Navigator allows them to part of multiple mentorship groups. Additionally they increase in confidence as they give back to our community of artists by sharing their experiences and expertise in their mentorship groups.

Annae’s Story

I came to Mastrius looking for a place to develop my artistic skills and while I certainly found that, I discovered so much more. I didn’t realize how important and life-giving having a supportive community would be. I have met artists and mentors from all over the world and have made lifelong friends while seeing my own art practice grow in leaps and bounds.

Becoming a Navigator felt natural to me because I have a strong belief in helping others and it has certainly been exciting to witness the growth of my artistic peers. Not to mention I have felt strengthened and supported by this inclusive community. Being a Navigator has allowed me to pay it forward to other artists.

As Lead Navigator, I love working with this caring and generous community of artists. The Navigator role is fulfilling and may be the next right step in your artistic journey. I look forward to working alongside you!

As a Navigator, I accelerated my technical and, leadership skills, discovered how important community really is, found my artistic voice, and developed both artistic and personal confidence. Being a Navigators has allowed me to envision myself as a serious artist.
