A TIME TO CO-CREATE WITH GOD
Our tracks are a part of the Creative DTS. During this 5-month Discipleship Training School, we are excited to partner godly discipleship training with creative tracks that will leave you inspired in the areas of coffee, photography, fine art, music, and dance depending on what track you choose. Below is information about all creative tracks in our Creative DTS.
The Barista Track will touch upon making coffee drinks of all types, the basics of coffee roasting, running a cafe as a business and much more. We are lucky to be connected to JACU Coffee Roastery, Precious Beans Coffee Roastery, as well as Dråpe Cafe who are all part of helping make the Barista track a memorable experience.
Come and join our Photography Track and learn how to photograph with excellence while discovering God’s heart for the nations. In addition to practical photography teaching, all students will have hands on opportunities to apply what they’ve learned by photographing locally (here in the gorgeous fjord region of Ålesund, Norway) as well as internationally while on DTS outreach. The goal of this track is to equip each student to understand their camera gear and to be able to create striking images that can be a voice for the voiceless across the globe.
FINE ART TRACK
The vision for the Fine Art Track is to let you explore what it means to do prophetic art inspired by God, how to bless others with what you create, and take time to learn new techniques and improve skills.
Teaching can include: the prophetic arts, painting, drawing, and classical foundations.
The Music Track focuses on songwriting & recording. Through various assignments, we want to inspire you to write songs and teach you how to produce and arrange them. YWAM Ålesund runs a recordings studio that will be used during recording times.
There will be opportunities to play and sing live as well during DTS.
Teaching can include: song writing, recording, producing & arranging, improvising, and the prophetic.
In the Dance track, you will further your gift of dance God has given you and learn how to bless others with it. Developing your skills in choreography and working with others through godly inspiration is part of this track. While quality is important, technique is not the main focus of this school.
Teaching can include modern, prophetic dance, hip hop, composition, choreography, and improvisation. Dance styles vary from year to year.
Dive into the world of writing together with God! In this track, you can explore your voice, how to write creative in different areas, and what it means to write for God's Kingdom. Writing technique is not the main focus of this school.
The vision is that you will grow in your identity in Jesus and in your gifting. Here, you are free to create and have fun!
