About Our Melbourne Art Workshops

I regularly hold Demonstrations and Workshops for Art Societies, Art Groups and Communities throughout the year.  The topics I cover are varied as you will see in the list of Workshops for this year (below); Oil Painting, Theory of Colour, Drawing, Palette Knife Painting, Portraiture to name a few.  During the Covid-19 pandemic I have adapted my content and successfully delivered many workshops and demos on Zoom.

    A wonderful Colour Theory workshop. Everything was explained so well. I also look forward to using my new skills. I will be looking at everything in a different way. Will certainly do further workshops with Ben and would love to attend one of his retreats. Thanks Ben.

    Ben gave a well-structured, interactive colour workshop which covered all the essential aspects of colour in painting. It was a tour de force from an artist who teaches in the classical way and practices in the classical way. Well worth-while.

    A great color theory workshop. I learnt so much and now find it easier to understand how to use color. There where so many essential skills taught that I couldn’t understand before the class.
    Thanks Ben!

    This was the 2nd colour workshop I’ve done with Ben. He lays out the theory and the exercises, in a clear and linear way. Mixing colour will not be so hit and miss from now on. Thanks, Ben

    It was a fantastic workshop thanks Ben. It now marks the beginning in my attempts to apply colour theory to my work & the need to practice the exercises that we learnt over the weekend particularly colour wheels, rub outs, colour matching, neutral greys & colour harmonies. Thanks again Ben 😊

    Thanks Ben for the fantastic workshop. It marks the beginning in hopefully a correct attempt to use colour theory in my work. I will benefit from all the exercises taught over the weekend including colour wheels, rub outs, colour matching, neutral greys and colour harmonies. Thanks again Ben 😊

    It is opening my mind to the mixing and use of colours

    Learnt a lot during the weekend Colour Workshop. The colour wheel introduction and then the continued referencing to it made this course so good. Highly recommend it!

    Ben’s 2 day colour workshop was very worthwhile. Ben is able to explain colour theory and relate it to old classical masters, which I had not experienced before with other teachers. I gained a deeper understanding of how to mix colour and make neutral greys, and much more, and complimented by well designed practical exercises. Would love to continue as a student and attend one of the retreats. Thank you Ben!
