19 Mar THAILAND | VISUAL ARTS FOR MISSIONS
Can a message on a canvas change a heart ? The Visual Arts for Missions school, at Create International Thailand, gives you a chance to explore how you can impact Unreached people’s lives through art that communicates effectively.
Through the close mentorship of local and international artists, you will gain a foundation of fine arts, as well as digital media skills, by delving into expert techniques to unlock all your artistic potential. Come and create art tools that will impact the nations.
We begin with foundational courses in missions, drawing and painting. Then we continue building on what you are learning to bring you to an intermediate and potentially advanced level. While developing art skills you will simultaneously be learning about God’s heart for missions among the unreached and the importance of culture. These concepts are taught through lectures, weekly outreaches, visits to local art museums, assigned readings, a journey to an unreached people group, and ultimately through us collaborating together.
After the three-month lecture phase, students will be directly involved in the production of a visual art tool for a specific people group. This will include travel to the people group for research, and consultations with workers among those people. Upon return we begin production on this fine-arts tool. Students will receive hours of guided production work at our facility in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The field assignment lasts three months.
