This album or book cover design project tasks students with designing a cover for an already existing book cover or album cover while also teaching them the basics of Adobe Photoshop. In an Introduction to Design course, learning program basics is an essential part, but by adding a pop culture theme by incorporating a project with options will give students more buy in with the assignment.
This lesson plan pack is extremely comprehensive. Even if you have zero experience with Adobe Photoshop, you can learn along with the students with the resources included. In addition, this could be an easy project to implement in distance learning. Handouts can be e-mailed or sent home with students and step by step instructions are already done!
