Why Ben's Art?

  • For Support
  • For Therapy
  • For You

On September 19, 2002 at age 18, Benjamin started his journey as an acquired brain injury survivor. He received four years of intense therapy that focused on walking and balance, speech pathology, cognitive and fine motor skills. His paintings now encompass all of these therapies.

 

A typical painting day for Benjamin includes getting out of bed and moving to his studio. He is then presented with colours of paint and is asked to communicate the hues he wants for the project at hand. He holds the paint brush and generates the expression of art through the movement of his hand. His artwork has become therapeutic and gives him great sense of purpose in his life. 



Enjoy a beautiful piece of Ben's original art. All of his art is either a duplicate of his original, or a commissioned piece that only you will ever own! We are pleased to present to you originals and reproductions of Ben’s handmade acrylic paintings.

Preset Styles

The Style Settings panel in the Gantry based theme administration interface provides several options for configuring the main built in stylistic aspects of the template.

Style

Gantry also provides the ability for you to create your own custom presets based on any parameter in the theme administrator. You should determine which parameters you wish to configure to be a part of the presets.


Assigning a Style

With Gantry, the ability to assign a certain style to an individual page has never been easier and/or more efficient. Just follow these simple steps:

  • Go to Extensions → Template Manager → rt_kirigami → Assignments → *Menu Item*
  • Select your preset from Show Presets, configure and save.

After setting your defaults to the desired values, select the Menu Items button and choose the menu item you wish to modify the parameters for. You will then see a series of checkboxes on the left of all the supported parameters. Select the checkbox next to the parameter you wish to modify, it will then become active, and you can modify as you wish. Clicking “Save” or “Apply” in the toolbar will then save this configuration.

  • Upload the created folder to your server

Note: You can upload all the files via FTP, or use cPanel or SSH to upload the zip and unzip directly onto the server. Enquire with your hosting provider.

Step 2 - Installation

  • Go to www.yoursite.com/*folder name*
  • Follow the Installation instructions
  • Ensure you click Install Sample Data during installation
  • Remove the installation folder in the Installation interface
