This course will demonstrate a variety of methods for using a printing press to make unique, one-off prints called monotypes. You will use found objects to create imagery, be introduced to new drawing and painting methods, and learn to build an image in multiple layers. The often unexpected results from this method fuel experimentation and new directions in the artist’s work.
Rebecca Rippon explores the intersection of nature and urban structures in her work. She uses these opposing forces to help question what it takes to survive. Printmaking drives her work, owing to its endless possibilities for variations and experimentation. Rebecca received her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute and a BA in English literature from the University of North Florida. Her literature studies have imparted a strong sense of metaphor into her work. Rebecca keeps inspiration fresh by roaming San Francisco wholly by bicycle and on foot.
