    Ben is a thoughtful and patient teacher, and unstintingly generous in sharing his knowledge and experience. He helped make it such an enriching experience to be part of this group retreat. A great setting and environment. The pre-breakfast quick painting sessions were excellent at getting your hand and eye in, and materials ready without fiddling and procrastinating!!

    I was totally immersed in painting during this retreat. Ben’s teaching was excellent, focussing on the basics so that you can build skills and grow in your own direction. We got up at dawn every day to go painting, sometimes being under pressure to finish something before breakfast produced surprising results. Ben’s energy and commitment to passing on sound techniques was infectious. I will be signing up again.

    I have completed a number of terms in Ben’s ‘Elements of Portraiture’ class. Really enjoying the mix of having live models to paint and focusing on facial parts – noses, ears, etc.. I have loved the experience and will be back for more.
