"Art classes can be a daunting arena to enter for the novice artist. Self doubt and lack of confidence often get in the way. Jenny Cairns has the intuitive ability through her fluid teaching style to break down those barriers and to support you on a personal and artistic level. The intangible "feel" of the class is as important as the end product to her and as a result she creates a cohesive learning environment which is rich in content, skill building and pure enjoyment. Her introductory print making class was a game changer for me as the projects we undertook allowed for a personal exploration of emotions, thoughts and feelings on a level much deeper than I ever expected....an awakening moment for sure!!" — E.O.

Painting from the Inside Out
Unleash your creative spirit and claim your joy and passion! This groundbreaking workshop combines meditation and painting, guiding you on a journey of awakening as you express the voice of your soul through art. Creativity is a special part of life — it is how we birth our ideas and our responses to life’s situations. We begin with a relaxing meditation with visualization and Reiki* group healing to release creative blocks. As you paint with acrylic on canvas, you will learn about the power of your own thoughts and creativity, and paint freely from the soul. At the end I will provide an intuitive reading of your art piece and what it reveals about your life.
$80 per person for 3 hour workshop. Supplies Included. Additional fees for travel outside Halton region. Minimum 6 people, ages 18+.

Healing Through Art: Creative Counselling
Difficult life experiences can affect every aspect of our lives. Art is a magnificent tool for understanding our feelings and finding the light amid the darkness. Using a combination of Reiki*, therapeutic art techniques and gentle guidance, I can help you take a deep dive into breaking your creative blocks, healing your inner artist, or exploring and enhancing your art practice.
Are you experiencing a creative block, or would you like to gain confidence in your artistic abilities? Genuine self-expression emerges when we openly surrender to the process, while understanding that there are no mistakes.
We are all inherently creative. Some of us are aware of it and some just need help remembering how to retrieve it. I can guide you on your journey, and it would be an honour to bring the gift of creative freedom to you.
$100 per 1.5 hour session. Private sessions are provided for all ages in my home studio or your location. Group sessions are also available. Supplies are included. Additional fees may apply for travel.
