As a theatre teacher in the area, I've seen Artsview build confidence, acting & tech skills as well as allow students to enjoy theatre! I'm proud suggest Artsview as an outlet for creativity.

In my over two years of being involved with Artsview, I have seen amazing things. The staff and voluteers of Artsview are committed to helping the children reach their highest potential without making them uncomfortable. With Artview's help a lot of these children discover talents they may have otherwise never found or quite simply discover a sefl confidence that will continue to help them throughout life. It's amazing to see the kids faces light up during the performances knowing that their hard work has paid off. The staff and volunteers are committed to making every child's life better for their experience!

I became involved with Artsview Children's Theatre when my son auditioned for a part in "Tom Sawyer." My son was cast as Sherrif Thompkins and our journey with this organization began. I found all the volunteers and professionals at Artsview to be friendly and helpful. Every aspect of the production was very well organized and all the children involved were very well behaved. My son along with the other cast members were coached and taught in a safe, fun and positive environment. Since his experience with Artsview, my son has had a marked improvement in his acting skills and has placed on the UIL All-Star cast two years in a row. I would definitely recommend this program to other parents.

My daughter participates in Artsview and absolutely loves it!. She is 6 and has a gift for "performing" but Artsview gives her, and other children who may not be as outgoing, an opportunity to shine and learn and create in a positive surrounding at an early age. I think this is crucial for development of young children because it develops self-esteem.
I have been amazed at the number of people, including teens, that volunteer and mentor these children. Artsview is just wonderful!

I love to take my children to their plays at least 5 times a year. I also enjoy their performance at one the local festivals called the Multicultural Festival were they perform at annually. I also enjoy their media team's awareness given about their upcoming events. I cant think of another organization in East Texas that promotes through social media and email as well as Artsview. I so enjoy them being a part of this community and if they have any opportunity to grow financially through grants or foundations or donations, I am sure they use it to make their performances and the performers better than ever.

This organization creates an opportunity for children in our area to participate in theatrical events. This opportunity gives them pride, helps them to learn the dramatic talent and provides a chance to make friends. My daughter is 4 and has attended numerous productions. She is looking forward to being old enough to be a part of it but until then she is enjoying being in the audience. I think ArtsView in Longview is an amazing asset to our community!

I worked with Artsview for several years before life moved me away to Fort Worth. There just isn't a children's theater of it's caliber in my area. The volunteers are passionate and well versed in theater background. The theater is wildly flexible and simple at the same time (it's a big empty warehouse building). The common response after every show is the shocked adult patron saying "Wow, that was amazing for a children's production". Artsview's teaching and quality of performance breaks the mold when it come to kids putting on a play.

It's one thing to teach theater and perform but it's an entirely different and more rewarding thing to see shy children come in at a young age and within 2-4 years take the lead role in a play. Artsview is spectacular place of learning and performing and is as an institution evolving into a integral role in the community. Slowly ACT is becoming a new extra-curricular alternative to a traditional sports, choir or nothing-at-all mentality that holds sway in the region.

Artsview so deserves to have a influx in monetary support so that it can take the next step in either equipment or marketing to spread the word around town. After 6 years of existing in a town with 80,000 people it's still common to have people say they've never heard of Artsview. There's just not enough "coin" going into marketing and and the crowds don't think to tell others on their own. It takes passionate volunteers and excited kids to make Artsview happen year after year and unless there is steady backing and little boosts in revenue then this AMAZING (notice the all caps) entity will continue to exist but fall short of it's full potential.
