Our desire as the InterVarsity National Arts Ministry is to help university artists find ways to connect their art, life, and faith. When we say "art" we mean all the arts - painting, poetry, acting, sculpture, dance, music, media/film, creative writing, as well as architecture and design. This series of videos deal with common questions and issues that we struggle with as artists like, "Are the arts of any real importance? Where in the Bible does it say God thinks the arts are important? Is it possible to connect our faith, our life, and our art?"
Our IV National Arts Ministry Directory, Dick Ryan, has been discussing how art, life, and faith connect for years - often with college age artists - and in these videos he shares with us a fresh perspective in approaching these topics. We'd love for you to join this discussion whether it is individually or with a group of friends!
Have you ever wondered if the arts have a purpose in our world? If God has anything to say about the arts and artists? If they are important at all? Or, as an artist, have you ever been in a place where the stress of what you do is taking over your entire life? How do we deal with all of that? Is it possible to connect our faith, our life, and our art?
