The SAC Mentor Program

The SAC Mentor Program, launched in 2005, offers assistance and training for emerging artists in marketing, legal and insurance issues, portfolio development, pricing, selling, and booth design. Central to the program is a multi-year association with CraftBoston. Recognized for its innovative approach, the Mentor Program combines SAC’s resources with those of CraftBoston. Artists selected to participate in this program will be provided information and training from professionals in the field, and subsidized booths at CraftBoston Holiday.

“SAC is always looking for new and creative ways to build on its mission of supporting craft artists and educating and promoting public appreciation of contemporary craft,” said Beth Ann Gerstein, Executive Director, The Society of Arts and Crafts. The SAC Mentor Program builds on the Holiday show’s solid educational programs, which include an educational lecture series, tours for guests who are blind and visually impaired and other special interest groups, a craft bookseller, and informational booths promoting non-profit craft organizations.
