About Ben

I have been leading a weekly art group for the last 4 years in which I have honed my ability to work with a varied group of creative individuals, all with different passions and reasons for making art. My approach to teaching is twofold.

I recognizing that everyone already has inside them what they need to be great artists. I come from the perspective that inside everyone is an artist weather they see it or not. Sometimes we carry beliefs about ourselves and we are not capable. Most of us have learned from somewhere that we are not good enough. The goal for any artist is to let go of preconceived notions and find a way to start creating. This can be a joyous, enriching and calming process, among other things.

Secondly- I recognize that I have something to teach you. I have spent my life making illustrations, paintings and story driven work, and I understand where the stumbling blocks are. My aim would be to teach you skills that I have learned in my own artistic practice. By identifying where you might be struggling I can work with you to help you develop key concepts and art methods. Lets us not leave out the fact that you have your own artistic interpretation and approach.

I am a trained painter, illustrator and animator. I have a very good understand of art theory. The modern work flow makes sense to me and I know how to incorporate digital tools such as Photoshop, Dreamweaver and sketchup. Most digital platforms are pretty intuitive to me.

I look forward to learning what excites you creatively, and want to help you achieve your goals along those lines. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me with questions so that we can develop a plan for your learning process.
