Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Program

Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Program


Studio E offers group therapy sessions for adults living with epilepsy, allowing them to explore their creativity, meet others with epilepsy and express themselves in an open, accepting and safe group setting.

During the program, partcipants 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.

Studio E artwork will help raise awareness about the realities of life with epilepsy. To view artwork created at previous session, please visit our Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Program Gallery.
