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.
Join us for a night of artistic expression. The students at Epoch Arts have teamed up for an artistic night in their annual Arts Response and this year they have responded to the theme, Joy through Sorrow. Students examine how to find joy though trials and suffering, what good can we bring out of something bad. They will perform poetry, musical numbers, films, dance and other art forms in response to this years theme. The money raised will help support the many youth programs offered at Epoch Arts. Join us April 25th, 7:00 pm. Suggested donation of $7.00. 27 Skinner Street, East Hampton. www.epocharts.org

Every first and third Thursday of the month Epoch Arts will host a drum circle where people of all ages and abilities are welcome to join in on the music.
