Spotlight Art Studio: Expressions Through Art

We are excited to offer Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program to people with epilepsy in the Greater Chicago area!

Studio E offers group art therapy sessions for people living 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. Workshops are broken down by age and will be developed to suit the age bracket of the participants in that group.

Studio E is made possible through an ongoing partnership between Lundbeck, a pharmaceutical company committed to helping people with epilepsy, and the Epilepsy Foundation.To learn more about the Studio E program or see artwork generated during previous programs from other affiliates, visit YourPartnerInEpilepsy.com

The next Studio E will take take place starting Saturday, Sept 13th in Winfield, IL. It is offered to teens ages 13-17. For more information, please contact Alnierys Venegas at 312-939-8622 ext 206 or avenegas@epilepsychicago.org or click here.
