According to the Epilepsy Foundation, art therapy holds many benefits for children living with epilepsy, which include:

  • provides artistic expression
  • builds autonomy
  • uses art as empowerment
  • assists with emotional stability
  • helps create a sense of self-worth
  • builds connections with others

ABOUT STUDIO E FOR KIDS:
Epilepsy Foundation of Utah and Art Access are excited to bring you the opportunity for your child to express his or her self through art. Your child will work with Jill Johnson (MAAT) and other children with epilepsy in a group setting to explore their creative expression. Strengthen your child's voice through art therapy in an open, welcoming environment! An epilepsy nurse specialist and a licensed therapist, as well as other qualified adults, will be present for the duration of the camp.

*Art Access serves a diverse clientele. Chronological and cognitive ages are taken into consideration upon registration of any participant, as well as individual adaptive needs. Please specify any special needs that your child may have at the time of registration.

Studio E is an art therapy program open to people with epilepsy in 30 U.S. cities, where participants are given the opportunity to creatively express themselves and their emotions. Living with epilepsy can be challenging and art therapy may be beneficial in working through how the condition impacts an individual's life.
