Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Therapy Program

Studio E by Shelle Hutton

Why Art Therapy?

Art is a natural way to communicate, relieve tension and express emotions. There are some things that many kids (and even adults!) cannot find the words to describe and art makes that easier. At the same time, young people are generally less guarded through art and may be able to communicate ideas more clearly. Studio E provides an opportunity to express emotions through fun and engaging activities. It builds a sense of community and connection.
