I am so happy that we decided to become part of the ARTS family! This organization is truly amazing. They have opened up pathways for my daughter that we never would have been able to find on our own. Not only do they help artists grow and find opportunities but they provide a caring, supportive, family, and faith based environment for them. I am so thankful that we found the ARTS!

Im not a parent, but I was a contestent and this was the greatest experience of my life. Not just for my acting and modeling career, but also I have made so many friends from the ARTS. Its a great family experience as well. I was so happy when Kim Myers discovered me in Erie, PA. I was not expecting to get accepted into the showcase with zero experience. This showcase changed my life, and so did a few people who helped me prepare for the showcase, like Lawrence and Julie. They are the reason why I accually did well in the showcase. I was asked to be in the local newspaper which I believe was a great experience. If you are wondering if you should audition for the ARTS… STOP wondering and do it you will not regret your choice. Thank you to all the ARTS members and the contestents for supporting me through the showcase. Special thanks to Kim because she believed I could be great at what I do, and gave me confidence to follow my dreams. Another special thanks to Chad Broskey, he helped me with tips on my acting and modeling through out the showcase. Also recently I contacted him to ask for tips and he responded right away with fantastic tips on how to build my career. Thank you again everyone!

Your daughter was not chosen by chance she was chosen by choice and because there is a true talent seen in her. This is not a hoax or a fluke its the real deal. The ARTS family is unlike anything I’ve ever known. Take one step at a time, do some fundraisers, take full advantage of the work shops and ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE. You will not regret it and that comes from a mom who’s daughter did not sign a big deal or contract this year but u can bet your fanny we are going back for round two! We believe in the ARTS! :)
I am an ARTS parent and I couldn’t have been more skeptical at the beginning and even more impressed by the program when we got there. I think the ARTS program should be used as a model for all programs that families and children participate in, KIM Myers and her staff – are tremendous.
It’s all about marketing and networking and that’s what makes these “talent conventions” so great. It is an investment (most of which is a tax write off, this is show BUSINESS), but remember – your child is a child – let them be just that. They’ll have so much fun you won’t be able to keep up. You network and market your future superstar while they have fun. If anything you meet some people and your child makes new friends, and learns about interviewing, public speaking, etc.- Good Luck, Just Go and Have Fun! Break a Leg!
