We are excited to offer Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program to people with epilepsy in the Treasure Valley!
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. Studio E is offered for FREE thanks to our ongoing partnership with the pharmaceutical company Lundbeck.
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 a licensed art therapist 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.
We are offering the following sessions:
- ADULTS: Tuesdays from 5:30-7pm, starting July 11th through August 22nd.
- ADOLESCENTS: (ages 6-17) Wednesdays days from 4-6pm, starting July 12th through July 26th. Snack/drink breaks will be provided, please indicate any allergies upon registration.
- LOCATION: The Shenandoah, 2000 N. 19th, Boise, ID 83702
