About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist and Art Instructor
Location Houston, Alabama, United States
Introduction My name is Susan Ripp, and I am a retired high school art teacher. I have a degree in Painting and Art Education from Birmingham Southern College and a Masters Degree in Education with a concentration in Ceramics from the University of Montevallo. I have worked professionally as a muralist, ceramic artist, and sculptor. I've taught Raku classes for adults for more than ten years, and many of my students work as professional artists today. My experiences in teaching have enriched my life as an artist and as a teacher. My enthusiasm for art and teaching are equal. I continue to share my passion for art with friends in my adult oil painting classes. I also teach classes for high school students who have a passion for the visual arts and/or plan to pursue art in college. Since my retirement from teaching high school art, I am now in a position to create art for myself. It is an interesting journey to explore my aesthetic voice while submerged in this new place and time in my life.
