Creative Arts

The challenges of living with epilepsy can bring a wide and often intense range of emotions. The Creative Arts program is part of a national effort to help individuals express their feelings and create an opportunity to connect with others who might be feeling the same way.

This free art program explores various methods of creative expression over multiple weeks and is led by trained art therapists. Finished projects are available to take home or be submitted to the Creative Arts Showcase and traveling Brainstorms Art Exhibit.

Thriving with Epilepsy

Meet Kevin Reed

Kevin Reed is an active EFMN volunteer who always participates in the annual Creative Arts Showcase each November. He has used his passion for photography to show others that living with epilepsy doesn’t have to be a barrier to reaching your goals and dreams.
