2014 StudioE Session Registration is Available!

We are excited to offer StudioE: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program to people with epilepsy in the Atlanta area again in 2014!

StudioE offers group art therapy sessions for adults (18+) 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, StudioE provides people impacted by epilepsy a unique opportunity to express themselves and open up about their experiences with the condition. This year’s program will be taking place on Saturdays from 10am – 1pm, starting June 7th through August 2nd, with the exception of July 5th. If you have an interest in attending these sessions, please complete the StudioE Applicant Information Packet and return to Aly Clift at aly@epilepsyga.org, by fax to (404)564-3034 or mail into the EFGA office at 6065 Roswell Road, Suite 715, Atlanta 30328.

For more information about the StudioE program, or to enroll in this year’s sessions, contact Aly Clift at aly@epilepsyga.org or call (404)527-7155.

 

What is StudioE: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program?

With Lundbeck’s support, StudioE: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program provides participants with the opportunity to express your emotions about epilepsy that may be difficult to explain to others.

Art therapy can help people sift through feelings that are sometimes too difficult to verbalize. The creative process of art can help resolve conflicts, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress and much more.

Living with epilepsy can be challenging and art therapy may be beneficial in working through how the condition impacts an individual’s life. Through this multi-week art therapy program, participants are given the opportunity to creatively express themselves and their emotions.

Studio E is offered in 50 cities across the nation. Hosted by local Epilepsy Foundation affiliates in partnership with Lundbeck, StudioE gives people living with epilepsy the chance to take part in multiple art therapy sessions with licensed art therapists. StudioE is made possible through an ongoing partnership between Lundbeck, a pharmaceutical company committed to helping people with epilepsy, and the Epilepsy Foundation.
