Explore, compose, and analyze your imagination through drawing. Our goal is to draw forms and scenes that look like something familiar. We will then formulate personalized approaches to make them compelling and narrative. By breaking down traditional rendering techniques and we can build them back up in our own ways. Through live figure drawing sessions, examining historical and contemporary rendering and composition techniques, discussions, demonstrations, and one on one dialogue and guidance, we will explore and create wonderful ways to make an image look like something.____Ben Cornish is an artist living in San Francisco. His paintings, prints and drawings recall  tensioned narratives that governed his early childhood. Cornish’s images act as unsure timelines of mistakes and anomalies. He received his MFA from The San Francisco Art Institute in 2019 and his BA from The Evergreen State College in 2015. He was awarded the Edwin Anthony & Adalaine Boudreaux Cadogan scholarship in 2018 and was selected to show in MFA Now 2019 at Root Division. Upon graduating from SFAI he received the Jack Schafer prize.
