The Inspire Arts Academy is a unique ministry in the Bismarck Mandan area.  As Ephesians 2:10 guides Inspire Church, it too guides the Inspire Arts Academy, "For we are God's works of Art, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared for us in advance."   At IAA we use the arts to start building a relationship between God (the ultimate artist) and the artists participating in the classes being offered.  Each class, be it visual art, music, dance, or drama begins with devotional and prayer time.  Then, students are instructed in the arts by professionals from the Bismarck Mandan area in their art field.

On Saturday, December 11th at 10:00 a.m. IAA will be holding an instrument try out/testing event to help kids interested in the Beginning Band Experience select an instrument well suited for them. Several local music teachers will be here along with the good folks from Eckroth Music to help with the testing and instrument recommendations.
