Join Us for Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program
The Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana is excited to bring you Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program this summer. This program offers people with various types of epilepsy and at different stages of their epilepsy journey the opportunity to express themselves through art. It is made possible through a partnership between the national Epilepsy Foundation and Lundbeck. This therapeutic program is offered at no cost to those with epilepsy, and includes those with daily seizures, those with less frequent seizures, and some with seizures that are well controlled. Some are confident and others struggle with stigma. Studio E offers a unique way for people with epilepsy to open up honestly about daily challenges in a trusting, expressive environment.
The 2015 Studio E program will be offered free of charge every Saturday from July 11 - August 15 from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Foundationoffice in Louisville. You will work with expressive therapist Angela Lechleiter, MEd, LPCC and other people with epilepsy age 18 and older in a group setting to create artistic pieces using a variety of mediums. Participation does not require previous art making or artistic talent. Plus, the artwork you create may help raise awareness about the realities of life with epilepsy.
There are a limited number of slots available and registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis. A light lunch and drinks will be provided each week.
To register, please contact Beth Stivers, MS, Director of Education at 502-637-4440 / 866-275-1078 x14 / firstname.lastname@example.org by July 10.
Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program is sponsored by Lundbeck.
