Every year CVAC hosts interns from the Arts Media and Entertainment Council (AME). Students from Coachella Valley High School visit CVAC on an ongoing basis during their normal class hours and work alongside CVAC Artist on real world art & design projects. More than a work shadowing program - this collaboration between CVAC and the AME council exposes students to Artist and the modern day careers accessible to them as artist. The beauty of the program is that on any given day students gain the opportunity of interacting with people and the world in creative ways whether it be seeing an artist weld a 20’ Eifel Tower out of rebar in studio or watch a design from a sketchbook fully realized into a bustling restaurant - its opportunity’s like this that lend substance to the arts as a career for these budding artist. In the past students created a logo for a small business, took onsite photography, learned design theory and how to relate their ideas to clients.
“ Opening our graphic design studio to interns from the Digital Design and Production Department at Coachella High is the most fulfilling part of our career, it consistently reminds us why we decided to become designers and pursue a career in the arts. The students that have participated in the program bring a level of creativity, curiosity and respect that is a testament to their commitment and education.”
