Competition: cover for next FMA release Forged in FMA Vol.2

Together with Collage Academy we cordially invite you to a live interactive session where we’ll delve into the application of collages in music album covers and the fundamentals of paper collage.

Each participant will have the opportunity to create their own collage, with select works showcased on the Future Media Academy website and Collage Academy social media platforms.

In addition, the most outstanding piece will be chosen as the cover for our forthcoming release, Forged in FMA Vol. 2, featuring music produced by the students themselves.

Why collage?

It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s doable! You don’t need to be a visual artist, you just need to have some patience, time and scissors.

Get your psy scissors ready and sign up!
