'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 both a fun & meaningful exploration of how creativity works- a restorative and inspiring way for teams, families & friends to connect, designed specifically as a creative response to this time of separation & uncertainty.

Perfect for team-building & off-sites, holiday events & creative reflection. This is not a technical drawing exercise but an exercise in enlivening the imagination & accessing the creative capacity of body & mind.

I loved Drawn from Within with Ben! I enjoyed exploring the concepts of inside and outside through short drawing exercises. My favorite part was then using our drawings to reflect on how we perceive the world. Ben was a warm instructor who made me feel empowered to create, even though I wouldn't typically consider myself an artistic/creative person. I left the class feeling thoughtful about the current virtual world we live in and excited to draw some more!

The hour with Ben made me aware that I need to not think so much when I do what comes naturally to me (and it isn't drawing).

It's great to take an hour out of your day to create something. I did the experience with a new team and Ben made it easy and relaxing. I learned more about my teammates and enjoyed the whole process.

Ben was great. He introduced interesting concepts in a short period and kept everyone engaged and drawing the entire hour. We had a great time!

It was inspired, I was quite happy and relax with the way Ben communicated and invited everyone to participate. Book Ben for a peaceful day of team bonding.

Organized this for a team bonding and really enjoyed the experience with Ben. He was really good at explaining and made it very a light hearted session.
