- Monona Rossol
This is the very first course in a brand new program designed to teach the health, safety and regulatory information needed to work safely in all disciplines in the arts from historic processes to 3D printing. Covered will be safety requirements for professional studios and classroom for all student populations including children, college age, seniors and art therapy patients. The course is designed for both students planning to be artists or teachers and for safety professionals with an interest in arts.
The teacher, Monona Rossol, has degrees in Chemistry and Art and has been an Industrial Hygienist with an art specialty for 40 years. She has worked in all but two states in the U.S., every state and territory in Australia, in Canada, England, the Netherlands, Portugal, Mexico, and the United Arab Emirates. Her work has included ventilation and regulatory compliance planning for art buildings, lectures, OSHA/EPA training, and writing nine books on safety and technical issues. One of these books, The Artist’s Complete Health & Safety Guide, is being revised and the new 4th edition will be available for students as a text.
The objective of the course is to provide students with the tools to assess the risks and to provide appropriate precautions and strategies that will enable them to work a lifetime safely. Monona also hopes that a few of these first students will also find a career path in art safety. Schools and art businesses need people who can consult or train in these fields.
