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 train artists – to be themselves! We like to open all the doors. Artists can only be free to create when they know the terrain and master the techniques.”

Dennas Davis, Firstlight founder
