Building a custom canvas print is a quick and easy art project, unlike reconstructing the Tower of Pisa with pipe cleaners. First, upload any image (in JPEG format) from your computer, camera, or subconscious memory to be converted into a work of art. Next, select the canvas you would like your picture to be formatted on. Pricing varies depending on canvas style and size, starting with a $10 7"x7" flat print with a 1" white border. Stretched and mounted across 3/4-inch wooden bars, the standard gallery-wrap print doesn't necessitate a frame. Tons of sizes are available, including a 14"x14" for $78 and a 24"x8" for $80. After making your selections, simply go through the online check out, prepare any pre-existing wall art for its new baby sister or brother, and wait for the art-delivery stork.

Classes are generally held from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and involve practical instruction on Buddhist meditation, ideas, and practice. A teacher will take you through guided meditations and explain ways to put the positive benefits of meditation into practice during daily life. After class there is an opportunity to ask questions, and if you attend classes on a Thursday, the main centre sells soup and sandwiches before class. Meditation can lead to improved relationships with others, shifts in perception, more congenial conversations with yourself, and constructive behaviour when dealing with stress. Classes are taught as three to five week courses, with recommended, though not required, participation every week. Drop-ins are welcome, as all individual classes cover self-contained topics.
Awarded honours for store design by The Retail Council of Canada, Caya supplies modern photographers with an array of gadgetry, plus photography products and print services. After picking up a four-gigabyte USB flash drive at any Caya location, buyers plug the drive into their computer, digital camera, or brain to upload images, then drop the drive off at any Caya location for development of up to 250 4”x6” images. Using advanced printing and imaging technology, Caya can develop images with sharper contrast and more precise colour rendering than the traditional wet development of silver halide chemical printing. Caya's process blooms the deep reds, magentas, green shades, and '80s fluorescents that older modes often cannot capture, and its greater dots-per-inch (DPI) resolution capabilities can result in clearer images.
