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 Columbus area. We will also be providing this program in Dayton with dates and locations to be determined. If you are interested in the Dayton location please call to be put on our waiting list at 513-721-2905.

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.
