Jepson art institute


Founded in 1945 in Los Angeles at 2861 West 7th Street by artist Herbert Jepson, it had a curriculum focused on modernist theories, experimental figure drawing and printmaking, especially serigraphy, which was pioneered at the school. In 1953, the school closed. Instructors included Jepson, Rico Lebrun and Francis de Erdely, and notable alumni students were Wallace Berman, Frank Chamberlin and Vincent Price. Source:
