The Inspiration Arts program teaches the power of creativity to inspire individuals to lead a meaningful existence and encourage positive attitudes in society. For those drawn to visual art, graphic design, music, dance, creative writing, drama and film, Ananda College offers an array of creative arts studies.
Inspirational Arts views both artistic expression and artistic appreciation as creative communication. Students learn how to become artists not just in a mechanical sense, but also as channels for the expression of a greater reality and consciousness.
A few couse offerings include Music & Consciousness; Voice & Singing with the Heart; Creativity & Self Awareness; The Art of Dramatic Expression; Dance & Movement; Beginning to Advanced Studio Painting; Photojournalism; Film & Consciousness; Beginning to Advanced Graphic Arts; Advanced Graphic Design Practicum; African Movement; Literary Arts (Poetry, Short Story, Playwriting, Creative Non-Fiction); Staged Reading; and Independent Practicums designed with Inspirational Arts advisors.
For upper level students, internship opportunities are available for graphic design, website design, video, photography, and creative and professional writing.
