Studio-E Art Therapy Support Groups

Studio-E Art Therapy Support Group

Participating adults attend a series of sessions led by licensed art therapists. During the sessions, they are encouraged to create art that enables them to express emotions about epilepsy in a safe, welcoming environment. Everyday challenges for people with epilepsy can include being concerned about potential seizures, a need to limit activities and a lack of understanding from others. Through art therapy, they can express what they’re feeling, connect with one another and ultimately inform others about the condition. Participants are given the opportunity to showcase their art through a variety of means, including local and national art exhibits.
