Be the LIGHT!
As artists, we are called to be creative to inspire others through our work. To be the light means that you offer encouragement, kindness, and compassion through everything you do. As artists, we are able to take circumstances and give it a purpose through what we create. We are able to see the beautiful in all situations despite how good or bad it may be. That is what being light is... we offer ways to help others shine through us!
