Art Therapy

 

We are excited to offer Art Therapy: The Epilepsy Alliance Ohio Art Therapy Program to people with epilepsy again in the Cincinnati and NEW to the Columbus area!

Art Therapy offers group art therapy sessions for adults, teens and kids with epilepsy, allowing them to explore their creativity, meet others with epilepsy and express themselves in an open, accepting and safe group setting. Art is a natural way to communicate, relieve tension and express emotions. 

During the program, participants work with licensed art therapists using a variety of artistic media, including painting, sketching and sculpting. Because some things are easier to “say” through art, Art Therapy provides people impacted by epilepsy a unique opportunity to express themselves and open up about their experiences with the condition.

 

Art Therapy in Columbus will be open to those individuals who are 15 years of age and older.  If your child is under the age of 15 and would like to be a part of Art Therapy please contact Karen Brown. It is not necessary to attend all 7 weeks of the group but as many as you can would be helpful.  Group Art Therapy will be held at Whetstone Recreation Center Classroom C August 23rd, September 13th, and September 20th,  and Open Studio will be held at the Dempsey Center August 30th, September 6th, September 27th, and October 4th.
