Village Art School

Village Art School was started in June 2022 to address the needs of local communities in and around the village of Broadhempston, Devon, UK.

Jane says "It was great. Ben came up with yet another astonishingly different and unexpected approach to teaching art in this class. It was fascinating."

Ben Risk is a young innovative teacher with great ideas and he challenges lots of preconceptions about how art is created. His classes embrace all levels of competence from "can't even draw a straight line" to the able artist. Prepare to be surprised and delighted in each session. He lives right here in the village and has great plans for the art group.
