:iconbenmaier:BenMaier has changed their username (formerly melaniemaier)

Significant changes: An X-Peeriment

As you probably all know I've got two X-chromosomes. That and the following consequences (hormones etc.) makes me a woman. Men have one X- and one Y-chromosome.

As an artist AND as a person I'd like to explore both genders more deeply than I've ever done before: I'd like to experience how living male feels like. Since I can't switch my biological sex with a magical spell, I'm gonna change my social perception as far as I can from a female perception to a male one. For a while.

I'd like to learn as much as I can about what it means to be and to be perceived as a man. I know my limitations.

For the following weeks/months "Melanie" will become "Ben". I'm going to change my username here on deviantART. I call it X-peer-iment. I'd be very glad if you take part of it and call me Ben during that time.

Cya,
Ben

I'll be starting a new mentoring class with up to 4 students next week. First two seats are already taken. Depending on who will participate I will do it in English or in German. Please write me an email in case you're interested in: melanie_maier@gmx.net and feel free to recommend the program to your friends.

Here are some general informations about my mentoring programm:

Learn from me: My Mentoring program - designed for you to improve

If you are interested in becoming my mentee, I will give you some useful information on that. You may certainly contact me via Email or Facebookfor further details.

My mentoring program is either held in german or english, just as needed. For optimal outcome you may decide how long you want your mentoring to be: Everything between 3 weeks and 3 months is possible. The program will include two hours of weekly google hangouts with up to 4 mentees where we share our screens and I give you advice, show demos and do paintovers. You will also have time to ask questions. In addition to that weekly appointment, you will get one hour of private lesson with me where I do more paintovers, give critique and further advice. This lessons can be given via email or Skype, just as you would like it. I will take max. 4 mentees at one time, so I can give everyone the attention he or she needs. While you are part of the mentoring program, there will be a group chat always open with all other attendees to exchange experiences and to expand and cultivate (new) contacts among the art world. When you start the mentoring program, I will do an exact evaluation of your current state and works and discuss your aims and goals for the workshop.

Payment must be made prior to the mentoring program. Costs will be 90 Euros per week, including 2 hours of group hangout and 1 additional hour of personal interaction via email or Skype. If you are not pleased with the mentoring program and mention that within the first week of attendance, you will get 50 % money back. If you explain why you did not like the program, you will even get 100 % back. I want to make sure that you really enjoy my mentoring.

In addition to my mentoring program, I also offer one-on-one lessons for 45 Euro per hour.

I really try to make my mentoring and the one-on-one lessons affordable due to the fact that students usually do not earn much money. I'd totally do it for 0 Euro/hour, but I need to cut out that time from my working and therefore need to take care that I do not impoversish over my passion to teach and coach others.

Do you know of a robert maier in Nuremburg? Daniel? Maiers fränkischer kloßteig? 

If so tell them Kurt Magdic's sisters son said hi! 

If not, you just have the same last name but I just thought I'd let you know on the off chance you're related.

Grundgütiger du warst ja schon gut als ich deine Sachen das letzte mal angeschaut habe, aber jetzt hast du nochmal ordentlich was draufgelegt!

Ich setzte dich deshalb jetzt auf meine Stalkerliste (wollte ich eigentlich schon letztes Mal machen, aber nun erst recht!)

Beste Grüße von einem deutschen Fan <3
