Classes will be held in the drawing lab on days when the weather prohibits outdoor work.

Instructor Bio

Peter Cusack, publisher, producer, writer, and painter is the founder of Cornwall Contemporary Art (COCOA). Cusack has degrees from Syracuse University and Ecole Albert Dufois. His work can be found in the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators, the New York Transit Museum, and in the United States Air Force Art Collection. With his mastery of naturalistic painting and drawing and background in illustration, Cusack makes works that are both immediately accessible and thematically subtle. His immersion in music and poetry, as well as in the human dramas that surround him, make his practice part of a larger continuum of creative thought.
