What Are You Looking For?

“If you’re looking for a great art class, this is the place. We’re taking our artists on a journey – from wherever they are now, to become what they’ve always wanted. Most art programs don’t give clear instructions, and often force students into pre-determined roles. We want 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
