Ben’s drawing experience is a wonderful way to step into the world of imagination to play in what is possible and what is abstract. The exploratory connection of our hands to the pencil to the paper and to our imagination can be described as a unique and freeing experience. I found Ben’s personally easy and pleasant to flow with. I recommend this experience with Ben to anyone who wants to explore their imagination and create newness from within.

This drawing experience was simply fantastic! I have never even really tried to draw at all so was a little nervous but Ben's experience was super fun and I now want to keep drawing. Ben engages so well with everyone and takes you on journey of creativity that is insightful and just plain fun! Could not recommend it enough!

If you spends days using your left analytical brain, this is a great way to activate your imagination and see the world as a child. Ben makes it a lighthearted and engaging, so time flies.

It was a fun experience that we all enjoyed as a family. My son hates drawing due to his mandatory very academic art class in his school and finally realized it can actually be fun.
