Studio E

April 28, 2014 | By |

studioe_logoWe are excited to offer Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program to people with epilepsy in the Greater Phoenix area. Studio E offers group art therapy sessions for Adults, Teens, and Children 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 year’s program will take place on June 21 & 28, July 12 & 26, and August 2 & 9. The children’s group will meet from 9:00am-10:00am and the adult group will meet from 10:00am-12:00pm at Phoenix Center for the Arts (located at 1202 N 3rd St, Phoenix, AZ 85004). For more information about the Studio E program, or to enroll in this year’s sessions, contact Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona at info@epilepsyaz.org or call (602) 406-3581. Registration will close on June 11, 2014.

lundbeck_logoStudio E is made possible through an ongoing partnership between Lundbeck, a pharmaceutical company committed to helping people with epilepsy, and the Epilepsy Foundation.
