Youth Achieve Virtual Arts Classes

Epilepsy warriors ages 8 to 17 and their families are invited to join us virtually for a five-week series of creative arts classes. These classes are designed to encourage open dialogue about the social and emotional impacts of living with epilepsy and empower youth to express themselves and their experiences. Through writing, drawing, cooking, and more, we hope to empower youth to share their thoughts and feelings with the ultimate takeaways being: independence, self-confidence, and advocacy.

November 3rd – Creative Writing & Poetry
November 10th – Perspective Drawing 101
November 17th – Keto-Friendly Cooking
