Revisit timeless locations known by heart—your home, a childhood realm of imagination, or a memorable faraway place—and translate a sense of its setting into visual representations that celebrate more than record. Through the use of mixed media, reconstruct memories of a significant place as a visual map. Consider the elements of art and principles of design while building numerous collage techniques to achieve artistic liberty!

Originally from Rhode Island, instructor Bonnie Parker has lived in North Carolina for most of her adult life. She has instructed and tutored a range of ages in painting, especially with her preferred medium of acrylic. She holds an undergraduate degree in English literature and studio art.
