Workshop Overview

Sitka Art Circles are a way to come together in a casual atmosphere and have a bit of artistic fun. Everyone is welcome! Transform graphite, pastels and acrylics to create multiple transparent layers that sandwich the elements of image, text and texture. This unique way of working will yield a richly layered piece that has a striking, print-like quality. You will complete the class with fresh ideas and a detailed set of instructions which will enable you to keep making layered pieces long afterwards.

About the Instructor(s)

Rebecca Wild is a Pacific Northwest artist and calligrapher from Port Townsend, WA. 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 message and creating abstraction. Originally from West Virginia, she was a calligraphy and art instructor in Portland for 25 years and now teaches workshops throughout the West Coast. Rebecca is an enthusiastic and organized instructor whose emphasis on process and technique is infused with creativity and encouragement. She strives to help beginners feel successful and to give established artists fresh ideas.

If possible please bring:
