Rebecca Schuchat is an illustrator, animator, filmmaker, comics artist and teaching artist currently based out of Oakland, California.  In 2016 she received a B.F.A. in Film/Television Production from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.  
Drawn to time-based mediums, Rebecca’s work focuses on building visual depictions of the overlap between the past and the present within narrative structures and the often ambiguous relationships between place, body and memory.  
Rebecca started teaching at the Children's Museum of the Arts in New York, NY while still in school and continued to do so upon her graduation.  She has taught a plethora of courses, including live action and animation, documentary and fictional filmmaking, illustration and comics, zine-making, photography, painting, sculpture, set and costume design, experimental film and music video.  
She believes in the incredible and transformative power that narrative art-making and personal storytelling can have on young students and learners of all-ages alike.
As of February 2019, Rebecca is participating in the TAKT Kunstprojektraum Artist in Residency program in Berlin, Germany.
