AMA Arts Academy operates in various suburbs in West, Melton City Council and Wyndham Council areas.
The academy teaches ancient Indian cultural arts such as:
*Instruments such as Veena, sitaar, drums like table, mrudangam, Padai
*Singing such as carnatic
*Dancing- various cultural dance such as Kuchipudi, Bhartnatyam, Bollywood dance
* Visual Arts – Canvas painting, drawings
The project is for all age groups, especially for kids, youth and women.
Workshops: conduct free workshops prior to terms and take enrolments
Timeline: The project is on-going starting from January to December
The project helps the migrants who miss their cultural activities. AMA is committed to inspiring both artists and individuals in the community, and will offer art classes to local people. They join together to help people create beautiful, meaningful art to increase self-awareness, enhance cognitive abilities and enjoy the pleasures of life through artistic production and reflection. We are expecting funds in the form of money, instruments donation, sponsorship and in-kind help.
Donations will be used for administration fees, buy instruments, art materials, costumes, pay teachers, travel, utility bills, rent, running cost of the school. The proposal is to run 6 centers in western suburbs. We conduct 6 events every year where 500 plus performers participate and there is a demand of art school in West whereas in Melton council area there is no art school and children and students have to travel to other suburbs to learn art. AMA Art academy not only teaches students but gives opportunities to perform and show their talent. We have world class teachers in the academy.
