This is amazing! Jennifer is so creative and thoughtful – she held a room of freshman (high school) girls captive while they wrote letters to their future selves, wrote notes of friendship for a beautiful birch branch mobile, and sketched and painted unique pictures. I highly recommend and can’t wait to sign up for an adult class!! The studio is clean, bright and happy, and Jennifer is a joy to be around.Pamela
My daughter has blossomed under Jenn’s mentoring; as noted by a deeper sense of self-esteem, understanding the power of words, and trusting her own developing abilities. I have been impressed beyond words by Jenn’s commitment to making this world a better place by guiding both children and adults into deeper reflections of their own innate self-worth and bringing goodness into the world. For example, this past summer, after a difficult news week with stories of police brutality and unimaginable violence, Jenn opened the doors to her art studio for anyone to come in, use her supplies and create art that would foster healing. This action is the epitome of Jenn – trying to make the world a better place by lifting spirits one person at a time.Eileen
I wanted to take a minute and thank you for having our daughter in your classes. We’ve had a very rocky last 7 months, and we have been trying to make sure we are paying attention to how we all are feeling, but it gets difficult sometimes. I got a sense from the first day of your class that our daughter felt safe there, and with you, and the girls and that made me be able to breathe a sigh of relief that I could provide her with something wonderful in this time of upheaval. I’m sure that her creations will be the focal points in her new room; she will be able to look at them and think of all those positive messages and experiences you were able to share with her.S.C.
What you did in your class should be a MANDATORY class for EVERY GIRL age 8-18! My daughter loved the class and I loved the way she came home and what she BROUGHT home! You gave her something she will cherish and a feeling of love for herself that is priceless! I can’t thank you enough or praise you enough for the work and effort you made for these girls. You gave my daughter an incredible outlet for her creativity, something I have not been able to do! Thank you so much -we will look forward to many more of your classes in the future.Lisa
I think the lessons and the mental messages you teach these girls to carry in their hearts is absolutely what every girl needs. They need to hear it from other adults (not just their parents) and know that there are other adults that care about the kind of girls they grow into. I, for one, am thrilled to know that you are rooting for my daughter in her personal growth, and it will go a long way for her to know it, too!Mary
I have a daughter who has been attending Jenn’s self-esteem based art classes for three years now. I have been impressed by her unique qualifications as a Self-Esteem Coach, artist, and all-around beacon of hope, love and positivity. Through her business, she has created a very special environment where kids (and adults) feel welcomed, supported and encouraged to be the best they can be. My daughter, who can be very shy, reserved and at times unable to take chances by joining a class where she doesn’t know anyone, has blossomed in Jenn’s classes. She has created beautiful pieces of art, but more importantly, she has learned how to think independently and creatively, connect with other kids her age, and engage in discussion in the caring and non-judgmental (i.e. SAFE!) environment Jenn creates in her studio.Holly
