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

Studio E offers group art therapy sessions for ages 14-24 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. According to research presented at the 2014 annual meeting of the American Epilepsy Society, people living with epilepsy reported increased self-esteem after participating in Studio E.

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 be taking place on Fridays from 2:30-4:30 p.m., starting July 17, 2015 through August 22, 2015 at the Southwest School of Art. Please note that Friday August 21, 2015 is the last class day and an Art Gala Event is scheduled for Saturday August 22, 2015 and is open for family and friends. For more information about the Studio E program, or to enroll in this year’s sessions, contact Ariel McCarter at ariel@efcst.org or call (210) 653-5353.

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 Studio E  or see artwork generated during previous programs, visit YourPartnerInEpilepsy.com
