Resources for making collages abound; use your own images or download from the internet. This course covers the various tools, techniques and sources at your disposal for making images that are surreal, editorial, decorative and inspired by the traditions of collage and decoupage. The resulting artwork can be printed and displayed or shared easily online. Digital tools, processes, resources and strategies of making and appropriating imagery will be covered through weekly assignments and shared examples.
