Class description: An ongoing program giving workshop assistance to printmakers working on projects in etching, collograph, woodblock, and multi-media techniques. Three presses are available to participants as well as many printmaking materials. Workshop instructor, Ronna Leon, assists in printing and problem solving. New materials demonstrations are given periodically. Individual attention is provided to each printmaker to help them achieve their goals. She welcomes new students who have never tried printmaking as well as experienced printmakers to the workshop. The ongoing program allows participants to continue to develop their skills and have access to presses in order to create a body of work.
Ronna Leon studied printmaking at UCSB’s College of Creative Studies back in the 1970’s. Raised in a family with a small press and publishing business, she has had a life long love of graphic arts, ink, and paper. She is experienced teaching monotype, etching, collographic and lithographic techniques. She adds to her own skills with new developments in printmaking which she shares with workshop participants. Her own work has been featured in a variety of small exhibitions within the United States and abroad and she has had a solo show at the Benicia Public Library, Marilyn O’Rourke Gallery. Her work may currently be seen at the HQ gallery in Benicia. For the past five years she has directed the Printmaker’s Workshop for Arts Benicia.
