The Art Effect opened up a piece of the world that I didn’t think would be open to my son. It brought out the best in him in the way a traditional classroom would never have.

This is so much more than kids making videos. I’m hoping that the skills that he is honing here will create opportunities for him that I am not able to give him. We’re in Poughkeepsie, not Hollywood. If not for The Art Effect, where else is he going to get that exposure?
