Studio E Art Therapy Program
We are excited to offer Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program to people with epilepsy!
Studio E offers group art therapy sessions for adults 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, Studio E provides people impacted by epilepsy a unique opportunity to express themselves and open up about their experiences with the condition.
This FREE six-week program will be offered in Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor in 2017.
