Rebecca Wild, artist and calligrapher, will tell the story of her own calligraphic and art journey, from a full-time scribe in Washington DC to an artist and teacher in the Pacific Northwest, at Peninsula College’s June 6 Studium Generale in the Little Theater.
Throughout this enlightening visual and oral presentation, she will weave stories that illustrate the importance of penmanship and the lost art of letter writing. She will also relate how a relationship with letters and calligraphy has changed the lives of some of the students in her workshops and classes.
Her work pairs a love of letter forms with the luminous characteristics of drawing materials and paint. She uses text as a tool for both conveying messages and creating abstraction. Raised in West Virginia, she has a B.A.in studio art, was an art instructor for 25 years in Portland, Oregon, and teaches workshops and classes throughout the West.

The event will begin at 12:35 pm, and is free and open to the public.
