We are excited to offer Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program to people with epilepsy in the Honolulu area! Why do we offer Group Art Therapy? Check out this Studio E Infographic!
Studio E offers group art therapy sessions for adults 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.
EFH is hosting Children’s Studio E at 9:00 AM on Saturdays beginning on May 7, 2016 thru June 11, 2016. You must commit to attending at least 4 of the 6 sessions in order to participate. Group art therapy works best when there is a consistency in participants for at least 4 weeks. Children aged 14 and younger can participate in Children’s Studio E.
EFH is hosting Studio E for Adults at 10:30 AM on Saturdays beginning on May 7, 2016 thru June 11, 2016. You must commit to attending at least 4 of the 6 sessions in order to participate. Group art therapy works best when there is a consistency in participants for at least 4 weeks. Adults aged 15 and older can participate in Studio E for Adults.
