What is Process Art?

Jenny Hahn, author and workshop facilitatorProcess art is a tool for mindfulness and self-discovery. While engaging artmaking for process, there are no mistakes and no prior art experience is necessary. Our unique expressions emerge naturally when we show up to ourselves and tap our creativity in this way.

Jenny turned to the process arts almost two decades ago as a modality for healing in her own life. She studied with Sarah Oblinger of Studio Exanimo, and in 2011 co-founded Creative Nectar Studio with podcast cohost Stephanie Gray. Jenny now leads workshops across the country for retreat centers, churches, hospitals and special interest groups, helping individuals of all walks of life access their own creative flow. Jenny's own healing journey—combined with 15+ years facilitation experience—brings her a wisdom and gentle guiding spirit that encourages 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. She's written a book about it, too. 

 

When we meet the creative impulses of our own being with openness, courage and curiosity, we learn to live in the creative flow.

Living in the Creative Flow: A Process Art Workshop

Jenny's process art workshops are facilitated in a safe, non-judgmental environment free from comparison and critique where each person can embark on a boundless journey of creative expression with the focus placed on the experience rather than the finished product. There are no mistakes, and no painting experience is necessary. While this is not art therapy in the traditional sense, the process itself can be therapeutic. Participants speak of a deeper connection to themselves and a greater acceptance of their experiences.

Testimonials

Mark testimonial pic“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.”

—Mark Fuss, Director of Spiritual Services: Awaken Whole Life Center

Carolyn testimonial pic“The Process Painting workshop was a great experience for my teens group. It was a liberating experience for some to learn about the process of meditation. They could freely express their feelings or simply paint and zone-out from the world around them. As their group sponsor I am sometimes at a loss on how to help them process what is going on and by going to this workshop it helped me to getting a better understanding on how to approach the hard topics. I definitely plan on setting up another workshop!” 

—Carolyn Hummel, Wyandotte High School USD #500

Joy testimonial pic“It was a delight to have artist Jenny Hahn with us at Unity of Lehigh Valley. We appreciate the ability to have a nationally known artist, based in spirituality, at an affordable cost to our ministry. Jenny inspired the participants to explore in new ways and brought everything needed to our event. The experience was both fun and a spiritual opening for participants. Lots of positive feedback that indicates we would love to have Jenny back in the future.” 

—Joy Wyler, Unity minister

Teresa testimonial pic“(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

 

Karen testimonial pic“We were thrilled to host Jenny’s process painting workshop here at Unity of Pasadena and to witness a visible transformation in those who participated. Jenny’s gentle yet supportive guidance helped people let go of their fears and paint from the heart–including those who had never painted before and those who had abandoned their art years ago. The closing discussion was a time for sharing and integrating. I highly recommend Jenny’s workshops for anyone looking to discover and/or reconnect with their creativity!” 

—Karen Epps, Unity minister

Cindy testimonial pic“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

 

Tim testimonial pic“The Process Painting Workshop was a wonderful time of free and creative expression in a safe environment. It helped me to get more in touch with myself and listen more clearly to voice of Spirit within. I highly recommend Jenny Hahn in how she facilitates this process!” 

—Tim Lytle, Unity minister

 

Nhien testimonial pic“Jenny Hahn recently facilitated a Process Painting workshop at Unity Temple through our U-Thrive InterSpiritual Ed & Enrichment Program). It was very well received by the participants! I appreciated not only her passion for her work but also her professionalism and flexibility as she listened to our needs and customized her program and marketing efforts to fit our particular church culture. I’m looking forward to booking Jenny for another workshop this fall season! ” 

—Nhien Vuong Dougherty, Unity minister
