Mentorship of the Highly Creative.
Ambrose, Don; And Others
Roeper Review, v17 n2 p131-34 Dec 1994
This retrospective case study investigates the experiences of a highly gifted young artist and two mentors who guided his high school development. Examination of the mentors' influences on the artist's cognitive and affective development found that the mentorship validated the boy's style of thinking, sharpened metacognitive abilities, helped with career direction, and provided emotional support.
