East End Arts School Overview

East End Arts strives to be a leader in art and music education on Long Island. Founded in 1995, the East End Arts Art & Music School offers year-round private and group instruction in music, art, design, and theatre for adults and children, serving over 1,400 students annually. Curriculums and programs provide enrichment for individuals from early childhood to school-age children to teens to working parents to retirees, promoting creative flexibility and lifelong learning. 

EEA Art & Music School students receive real-world experience and form bonds with their peers. Our Art & Music faculties are both seasoned working and teaching professionals, touting degrees from prestigious institutions including RISD, Pratt, Juilliard, Mannes, Boston Conservatory of Music, Berkley, and Moscow Conservatory of Music. Many have received awards from high-caliber exhibitions and have artworks showcased in permanent collections at museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Programs lead to exhibitions and performances when possible. 

Studies have shown individuals who actively participate in arts education are twice as likely to read for pleasure, have strengthened problem-solving and critical thinking skills, are four times more likely to be recognized for academic & professional achievement, and four times more likely to participate in a math and science activities. The arts are not only a vital part of a child’s development but also open new doors to learning for those who are beyond their formal education years. It is East End Arts Art & Music School's mission to provide opportunities to Unlock Creativity and Build Community for life.

Hello Education team! 

I had to write to thank you for a wonderful camp experience for Calvin this week. The snow got in the way a bit, but it didn’t stop the fun! He was so proud of himself and really enjoyed his time with the other campers and Ms. Haupt. 

If you run a camp for the next school vacation, you might want to advertise it with one fewer seat than is available, because Calvin definitely wants a spot! 

With gratitude,
Emily Puccio 

Dear Ms. Ruscisck,

I just want to tell you how grateful I am that EEArts offers such valuable art courses. I have taken a few painting classes over the years, and always come away having learned something new. All of your art teachers have been knowledgeable and helpful in conveying different techniques. However, in taking classes with Kenneth Jackson I've learned so much! He  is not only a wonderfully talented artist, but he is an outstanding teacher. Since taking classes with him, I am able to incorporate what I've learned in class to other pieces that I'm working on at home. I can see true improvement in my work from sketching and blending colors, to being more aware of shadow and light. I really see things differently. I am so thankful that through his tutelage, I can see  myself growing as an artist. I feel very fortunate to have access to classes offered by the true professionals teaching at the East End Arts.

Great performance by all! 

Kathleen, you guys put together a class act and the production was incredible. I am so glad that Franklin could be a part of it. 

Watching the show on my computer I am amazed at the wonderful quality of sound and film - plus the performances were TERRIFIC! 

Thank you so much for always encouraging our young artists. EEA and you are a Godsend for them.

Thank you Natalia, Indira, and Franklin for all of your performances, and for sharing your musical talents. You are all an inspiration to other students and to all the parents and other supporters of the Arts. It is a pleasure working with all of you.

And thank you Kathleen for bringing it all together, while still giving the students the latitude to be creative. EEA is truly a respite and outlet for expression and artistry.

This accomplishment is something to be very proud of - well done, everyone!

Yes! Thank you to Kathleen and all the team at East End Arts for providing amazing opportunities for our kids and allowing them to shine! I am especially grateful as Kathleen made it possible for Indira to join at the last minute and to Franklin for agreeing to accompany her and learning a song in one night! What talent!

Congratulations to all!
