Throughout history Art has had an integral role in the lives of people. Art encourages, lifts the spirit, instills truth, brings healing, records happenings, exposes atrocities and cries for justice. Art communicates where words fail.
Being involved in creativity has been scientifically proven to reconnect our right and left brain lobes thus encouraging better communication, to aid longevity and memory retention, and aid the healing of mental trauma.
Art speaks to the heart, yet we so often devalue and leave it out or set it aside as 'merely decorative'. As God's people, we have a calling to dedicate our creativity to Him for His direction and use and to bring Him glory. We are called to raise our brushes, pencils, chalks and pens, joining in the battle for souls.
CAS offers training in fine arts in the form of a basic arts foundation series as well as a school of application of fine arts to evangelism. There are also seminars to prepare fine artists to share their talent and their faith. There are illustration schools and schools of digital design as well. This is a growing area of CAS and we welcome your information about existing arts programs in and out of YWAM.

The Art Ministry at YWAM North in the city of Corrientes, Argentina is setting new trends in the world of fashion. It all started in October 2008, when a YWAM North staff member, Hakamiah Galeano, took part in a competition called “The Third Annual Week of Fashion and Design” organized by the provincial government in the provincial capital. Hakamiah created three original designs which placed second in the competition, and through these first designs, the brand “RaceFusion” was born. RaceFusion is part of the art company called “Art's Creative Heart”, which is part of the Arts Ministry at YWAM North Corrientes.
