We are excited to offer Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Program to people with epilepsy.
Studio E offers group art therapy sessions for adults, teens, and children with epilepsy, allowing them to explore their creativity, meet others with epilepsy and express themselves in an open, accepting and safe group setting. Studio E is offered for free thanks to the generous support of our partners, Lundbeck and OWP Pharma/ROW Foundation.
Art is a natural way to communicate, relieve tension and express emotions. According to research presented at the 2014 annual meeting of the American Epilepsy Society, people living with epilepsy reported increased self-esteem after participating in Studio E.
During the program, participants work with art professionals using a variety of artistic media, including painting, sketching, and sculpting. Because some things are easier to “say” through art, Studio E provides people impacted by epilepsy a unique opportunity to express themselves and open up about their experiences with the condition.
