Ben is a pretty awesome prof. He's really into new edgy things. The one draw back about him is that he is constantly telling you to drastically change your work ie: turning the entire background from white to black or in a painting attempting to move an entire tree to the opposite side of the page. I do like how we almost always start out the class critiquing everyones work and then spend the second half working. Ben is also very up to date on all the new art that is going on in general and always has interesting stories about art.

Ben comes about 10 min late to this 10:00am class nearly every day even though it is his first of the day. He then will hold the class for approx 10 min after 11:50 and complain that we don't have enough time. Huh. He's also crazy (we watched a movie of his glow in the dark scrotum being jabbed with a fork on a projection screen). BUT, he is very... artsy, and has a lot of sweet on-the-edge ideas about art.
