 The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago is excited to bring adults living with epilepsy the opportunity to express themselves through art as part of a seven-week art therapy program. They will work with art therapists, a writing instructor, and other people with epilepsy in a group setting to create artistic pieces using a variety of mediums, strengthen their artistic voice and learn from others in a safe, welcoming environment. Their artwork may also help raise awareness about the realities of life with epilepsy. To view art work created at previous sessions, please visit our Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program Gallery.
