Suggested Artists Michael Klek, Peter Clark, Patrick Dremer, Brianna McCarthy, Pascal Marlin, Alexandros Vasmoulakis, Lucas Simoes.  Books Cut & Paste – 21st Century Collage, Cutting Edges – Contemporary Collage

– Final work will be produced by amalgamating all these elements using Adobe Photoshop; drawing and photographs can also be used. Investigating layers and the different layer blending modes you will consider composition, colour and mood to produce a final piece of work which reflects you and your personality.
