We are Artistic Pride Productions while we do teach craft and technique, we also teach the importance of art as a tool to cope with and celebrate life. we believe art is for everyone and that students should should reap benefits of performing and presenting in addition to learning we set up performance and sharing opportunities and produce full shows both plays and gallery shows.
One of our goals is to show our menbers and students how great they are as they are. we help each other find our own voice and express it whether it be on the stage, canvas or your everyday life. I enjoy seeing people embrace who they are and share it. I also enjoy learning from my students. Rich or poor experts or novice young or old and no matter what race, religion, or varied background they all have wonderful stories to tell and i get to help them tell them.
Anthony is a gifted teacher, musician, and songwriter. He's willing to go to where your art needs to. Unlike anyone else I've worked with, he can bring out the beauty of your rough drafts/performances and make them rock. I say that because that's what Anthony has done for me. He has taken my songs and performances to new heights, saw things I didn't, brought out parts of my performance that I undervalued. He's just gifted and generous. Outstanding.
Anthony is so kind, generous, and an all around amazing human. He creates unique pieces that have social relevance. As a director, he is precise and assertive without being judgmental or aggressive. I love APP!
We treat each student individually therefore no interaction is typical. we try to figure out how we can help each student develop their voice
