    He listens really listens to your ideas and creates ways to help you achieve your goal based on your skill set. He is also just a genuinely nice person to be around.

  • Haley Skinner

    It is an environment anyone would wish to work in. Ben Henry is an excellent artist whose work in oil paints is truly memorizing with the use of a bright color palette and a whimsical take on everyday life.

  • Isabella Quintanilla

    I liked how he taught us and explained things in a way to make you feel like your art wasn’t bad but could always be improved upon which cultivated a nice space for learning and growing as an art student.

I started by teaching my nieces when they were young and I saw how much fun they had while they used high level thinking skills, so i went back to school to obtain a license so I could teach full time.


What types of students have you worked with?

Most of my teaching experience has been with teens of all abilities.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently a group of students and myself learned screen printing, and sold t-shirts and tote bags that we made


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

There is a missconception that art takes talent, or good artists are gifted. Becoming good at art takes work, focus, desire, and having the mindset that you can reach your potential. Just like learning to play the piano, you will need to practice the skills to get better. Be patient, try hard and you will see results.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do you want to get better at? for example portraits, anatomy, animals, landscapes, and what can they provide to make you reach your goal. Ask teachers if they can provide examples of their work or student work.
