We are eager to know you, to know where you are, what are you doing and planning to do. But, first, we must tell you who are we: we are Epoch Arts. An "arts for youth" non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to helping young people learn to communicate, collaborate, create and celebrate by experiencing, hands-on, the arts. And no experience needed please. Whether it's in a class, rehearsals, or in performance, students learn valuable principles, techniques, and skills that help them grow as people, and as artists. We address complex issues and social tensions that young people face by creating original student and artist performances. Our aim isn't to create perfect artists but rather to use the arts as a medium to help you understand and express feelings, work with others and to explore complex issues that you face in your daily life.
Kids ages 4 to 11 can join us for a Christmas Party. Make presents to wrap and put under the tree, play games, decorate cookies with Mrs. Claus and greet Santa as he visits Epoch Arts with his elves. Enjoy the season with all your friends at Epoch Arts. Dec.13th 1:00-4:00. $15. Register at 860-365-0337
14 students have created an original one act play called, " Giving, To Change the World." This years theme was chosen specifically to go around the Holidays, with the focus on giving rather than receiving. The students have chosen topics such as homelessness, why we give, humility, because of things we lack in our own lives or simply just to give. They also touch on the subject of what we say, what comes out of our mouth, do we speak positive things or nothing at all? Are our actions good, do they help or hurt, what if we do nothing? We have a live pit and the cast will also be singing. The cast has also created Care Packages to give out to those in need. Join us Dec. 5th and 6th, 7:00pm, $ 7 admission. Reservations recommended.
