CCAM is designed for high school students who are interested in a career within the arts. Participants are selected after a competitive application process. Paired with a working artist, mentee and mentor work together to create a project from concept, through creative process, to professional exhibition. Together they must establish effective lines of communication, problem solve, and ultimately create art during a five-month period of time. The mentors are all volunteer professional artists.
The CCAM program was founded to honor Claudette Carter, who passed away in 2007. Claudette demonstrated an incredible commitment to community and arts education—believing day in and day out that lives are transformed through art. Claudette worked in fashion design, styling, and set design industries. Her interest in myriad elements of design inspired the Art Base to create opportunities for Roaring Fork Valley youth to learn more about what it takes to pursue a career in the arts.
This exhibition is generously sponsored by Richard Carter.
