Who Are We?
We are a community of families who support student artists of all ages and backgrounds. Our program is built on fostering talent with strong leadership, excellent work ethic, teamwork, positivity, joy, passion, inclusivity, and encouragement! Our oldest students take on leadership positions, role model, teach and encourage the younger generation. The younger students benefit from the experience of older students while also finding their value and equal place in the learning environment. As storytellers, being involved in professional plays, films, and commercials requires actors to embrace and value working with various ages and backgrounds. Our students are all challenged appropriately by their unique talents and individual experience levels while benefiting from opportunities to lead and to follow- and to enjoy the benefits of encouraging others and the delight of being supported. Sears Studio is committed to teaching to the whole child-a child who learns to live the way of the artist is a child who plans for the future with wisdom and imagination!
