Prerequisite

A successfully completed Discipleship Training School.

The Lecture Phase

Be challenged to grow in your relationship with God while using your skill in visual arts. Be ready to learn how to use art in meeting the needs around you

This school is designed for those who love God and enjoy being creative at any level of skill. We will study a variety of artistic mediums and discover what it means to be a godly artist; someone who creates from the beauty and life that is inside them. You will be trained to look at the world with God's eyes, to bring to life His restorative plan for beauty. You do not have to be incredibly skilled in art to do the school, you just need to be willing to let God teach you new things!

You will be discipled in a one-on-one context on this school, but also in a corporate setting through all the incredible happenings in the YWAM Perth base life. This will include fun events, incredible prayer and worship sessions, shared meals each day and much much more!

What you'll experience during the lecture phase.

Developing Your Hand Skills

This school will push you grow your skills in different properties of visual art. Weekly sketches, workshops, exercises, and class projects provide a solid platform to push forward in hand control, but also in concept and composition. Our desire is to glorify God not only in the purposes of artwork, but also in excellence.

Getting Out of the Classroom

Perth is a beautiful and modern city with a vibrant art community. There will be regular outings to create in the streets, check out local artists and art pieces, and gather inspiration. Between the warm weather and the creative atmosphere, Perth is an incredible atmosphere to grow as an artist.

Art Evangelism

The emphasis of the AES will always be on evangelism. We strongly believe that loving others and communicating God’s love is far more important than the art itself. This school pushes into the city of Perth in practical ways. By using our gifts to serve others, we hope to build relationship and make God known to others.

Outreach Phase

Using visual arts to go beyond language and cultural barriers in order to communicate God's love

Genesis 12:2 says that we're blessed to be a blessing! Our goal is to be generous in loving others through the gift of art that we have been developing through this school. Engaging with people in communities, drawing portraits, working alongside churches, teaching individuals how to use art, painting murals in places that have no visual art at all, and the list goes on.

You will use the skills you learned during your lecture phase such as sketching, watercolour and painting to give people a tangible blessing, also using your new understanding of God's heart for restoring the beauty in this world. Art is a powerful tool in communicating His love, it goes beyond all barriers and can be used with any group of people. It is eye catching and will always cause people to stop and ask questions. You will see lives transformed as you use your gift to bless others and glorify God.

Mission experiences during the outreach phase.

Exhibition

Our heart for exhibitions is to create an inviting space for the surrounding community, regardless of their backgrounds. We believe that exhibitions are an opportunity for artists to share their unique perspectives on the world around them, as well as to honor whichever culture the exhibition will be held. The edge of exhibition is that artwork can be presented to an audience in a setting that sparks discussion, creates evangelism opportunities, and solidifies community.

Portraits

Portraits are a quick way to connect with locals anywhere in an honoring way. Taking time to draw someones portrait expresses their value and gives opportunity to encourage. It’s also a truly unique gift for someone that can brighten their day and show Jesus’s heart for the individual.

Murals

Murals have presence. Creating mural with beautifying imagery in accessible places can return dignity to communities as well as create new relationships. As artists and locals work together to complete a mural, it creates opportunities for teamwork, and builds unity in a truly unique way.
