What is Process Painting? 

Process painting is a tool for mindfulness and self-discovery that is facilitated in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Free from comparison and critique, we embark on a boundless journey into the unknown, with the focus placed on the experience rather than the finished product. There are no mistakes, and no painting experience is necessary. We recognize that every person is a creative being with unlimited potential and that when we show up and tap into that creativity, our unique expressions emerge naturally. While this is not art therapy in the traditional sense, the process itself can be therapeutic. You do not have to be an artist to use creativity and process work for self-discovery. Process painting, like meditation, is a tool to bring us home to the present moment and to our truest sense of self.

Participants speak of a deeper connection to themselves and a greater acceptance of their experiences. When we are able to meet the creative impulses of our own being with openness, courage and curiosity, we learn to live in the creative flow.

About the Facilitator:

Jenny HahnJenny Hahn turned to the process arts almost two decades ago as a modality for healing in her own life and now offers process painting as a tool for mindfulness and self-discovery. In 2011 Jenny co-founded Creative Nectar Studio with studio partner Stephanie Gray and now leads workshops across the country for churches, retreat centers, hospitals and special interest groups, helping individuals of all walk of life to access their own creative flow. Jenny’s own healing journey—combined with 10+ years facilitation experience—gives her a wisdom and gentle guiding spirit that she brings to participants, encouraging each painter to move through blocks and paint freely from the heart using the tools of tempera paint, paper, a brush, and present-moment awareness.

“I always feel peaceful, yet energized after a few hours of process painting. It helps me turn off my nagging internal critic who insists everything I do has to be “right” or be “perfect.” I can paint simply for the joy of letting myself create, because I don’t have to worry that what I create has to be fabulous …”

—CT, Accountant/Photographer/Writer

“(The workshop was) a warm friendly place that allowed my creative soul to speak, dance and play. I get something out of the process every single time I go. Thank you Jenny for a very supportive experience.”

—TM, Entrepreneur/Designer

“Process painting with Jenny Hahn will open your heart and if you let it, challenge your mind. Jenny creates a safe, encouraging environment for the artist hidden or buried in each of us. As a Retreat Leader at Unity Village, I had the pleasure of watching a room full of people lose themselves in swirling colors, Jenny’s gently probing questions, and the wonder of creation. One participant later described his experience to the group as “group therapy in technicolor” and related how easily his defenses had melted away in “the bubble of love” that Jenny and the group provided. I highly recommend Jenny’s Process Painting Workshop for your church or center. Process Painting isn’t about artistic talent as much as being open to Spirit and allowing what is within to emerge onto the paper before you. The results will surprise you.”

—MF, Director of Spiritual Services
