YAM supports young artists in their early stages
The YAM (Youth Artist of the Month) Program sparks a shared creative practice between The Gullah Art Gallery at The Beaufort County Black Chamber of Commerce and youth in the community.
This program occurs every other month and is offered to all youth in the community between the ages of 5 and 18. This program is a valuable tool for discovering, exploring, and interpreting reality through the arts.
This signature program was designed to support young artists in their early stages with finding and developing their creativity and helping to enhance their professionalism. Each participant collaborates with gallery staff to plan and implement their own unique showcase while giving them the skills, experience, and self-confidence to meet their full potential.
Each youth artist will learn techniques that deal with how to create their own biography, title their collections and artwork, present their collections, public speaking, and financial management.
For more information on this program to participate or become a sponsor, contact Dominique Tuttle at 843-986-1102 or email ARTGALLERY@BCBCC.ORG.
