Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program

Studio E 2015

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

Studio E 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. 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 licensed art therapists 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.
