WARSAW, Va. (WWBT) - RCC Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL), is offering a workshop that uses mixed media to create a collage of memories.

The course will be Thurs., March 5, 12 and 19 from 2 pm to 4 pm at RCC’s Warsaw campus.

In “Turning Memories into Art: Mixed Media Collage” students will use a favorite item or memory to create a one-of-a-kind work of art to inspire oneself or give as a unique gift.

This hands-on workshop will examine the various materials and techniques used to design a beautiful collage. Students competing will complete a 12” x 16” canvas.

Participants are asked to bring materials such as an old photo, lace from Mom’s wedding gown, a relative’s cherished recipe--anything that elicits favorite memories or inspiration.

A recent student commented, “I enjoyed the class very much. Bernie is an artist and educator. She was helpful and encouraging to each student and we left with a one-of-a-kind piece of art.”

Instructor and artist Bernadette "Bernie" Barclay, is a life-long artist, creative instructor, and owner of Love. Create. Art. She has a passion for making people happy, especially through art. “I moved to the Tappahannock area from Richmond about 8 years ago and wanted to fulfill my dream of bringing art to the Northern Neck Community,” comments Barclay.

Advance registration, with payment of $50 which includes supplies, is required to take this course.
