What you'll do

EXPLORE CREATIVITY FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

As experienced by team Google, Apple, Facebook, Nike, Netflix, YouTube, NPR, Amazon, Linkedin, Twitter, Spotify, Johnson & Johnson & Mind/Body Online. Featured in Travel & Leisure, Mercury News, & Downtown Magazine. Check out Ben's recent interview in Cultbytes online.

No art experience necessary. No drawing skills required! Great for team-building, social connection & creative reflection.

This is not a technical drawing exercise but an exercise in enlivening the imagination & accessing the creative capacity of body & mind.

'Drawn from Within' explores the way in which drawing enhances the relationship between inside & outside & allows us to see familiarity with renewed curiosity. The experience provides entry into the creative mind & distills creative principles that can be applied to other areas.

‘Drawn from Within’ is a playful & interactive exploration of how creativity actually works. A restorative, meaningful & fun way for teams, families & friends to connect, designed specifically as a creative response to this time of separation & uncertainty.

Please message Ben Ponté directly to ask about group discounts or specific times not already listed on the calendar.

Ben was wonderful! He's so likeable and funny, and made everyone feel relaxed enough to be at their most creative. The time flew by. I want the life of a NY artist!

We spent 1h with Ben learning how to draw from within and had the absolute best time, highly recommend this as a fun session for your team to think about your creative process in a new way and do something other than work together!

Even for people who consider themselves to be not great at drawing (like myself), this experience was enjoyable and offered some really great insights into creativity. Ben helped us to think about the creative process in new ways, and offered some exercises and ways of thinking that will help us all going forward. I'd recommend this class not only to people in creative industries, but also people whose jobs seem straightforward and technical. It's amazing what a little shift in the mindset can do to help one feel inspired.

We booked this event for a company-wide virtual retreat and it was a great way for teammates to get to know each other and unwind. We don't always have the opportunity to engage our creative side so this was a great activity to change up our day-to-day. Ben was an outstanding host and was very attentive with booking and planning.

This is a fantastic experience! I attended with a group from work and we all all had a tremendous time. Ben is an excellent host. Before the event, he was incredibly responsive and helpful with event coordination and fielding any of my questions. He absolutely went the extra mile to make sure we had a smooth experience. During the event, Ben did a fantastic job of making the hour fun, engaging, relaxing, and insightful. He made a great effort to interact with the entire group and make sure that we were all participating and enjoying ourselves. Folks of every art background (from total newbie to seasoned professional) will have a tremendous experience with Ben. I would absolutely recommend this event!

Ben was a joy to work with. He is responsive and super cool. He was able to accommodate my special request for timings around global time zones as our team is spread out. We had two sessions with him and each one was engaging and interactive. Guests loved the knowledge that Ben had and the little anecdotes he share throughout the session. it was a nice experience over all.
