Art Department

Welcome to Epoch Arts’ Art Department

The Art Department is ever growing and evolving in order to offer a wide variety of art and craft classes to children of all ages.  We currently have 5 art teachers on staff offering courses in painting, drawing, clay, and crafts. Classes run in 8 week semesters with new courses being offered every semester.  In addition to classes we have our annual fall art show, “Artopia”, highlighting the work of all of our students.

Our goal is to teach our kids some of the fundamentals of art and introduce them to different mediums to enhance their creativity.  Ultimately we want every child to experience a sense of pride in what they are doing and creating while enjoying a good dose of messy fun.

Feel free to stop by and check us out, and keep an eye on the website for upcoming art shows and workshops for kids and adults.

Thanks for coming to Unfinished People-2017

The original play, Unfinished People, focused on issues of social and economic differences, it looked at what causes separation, what distracts us from community involvement and how we can educate ourselves on issues that we know nothing about. It talked about characters who lived in a perfect diverse society, but when they are pulled out of that society and forced to look at the real world,they are shocked at how broken the world really is. "The play tackled current social and economic issues, as well as addressed the drug problems in this world that others seem to ignore. It taught us that we need to be passionate and active members of our community, instead of being distracted by superficial things,” says actor Megan Crotty. The play asked the question of how we spend our time, what superficial things we fill it up with and should we be investing in people, rather than things. Sixteen year old cast member Robin Leet explained, “This isn't your average play. This show discusses important, sparsely spoken of issues, such as drugs, addiction and what it can do to a person, and the unhealthy things we consume ourselves with in daily life. We will speak of the vacancy in relationships and people caused by cell phones and other casual, everyday devices.We break down barriers you might not even know were there and bring attention to poverty, the middle to lower class, and how these issues can affect our community as a whole.”
