What Are You Looking For?

“We’re taking our artists on a journey – from where they are now, to where they’ve always wanted to be. Most art programs don’t give clear instructions, and often force students into pre-determined roles. We want to  to open all the doors for our artists so they know how to do what they want to do. If they’re confident in technique and self-expression, we know they’re going to be happy – and the world needs happy artists.”

Dennas Davis, Firstlight founder
