PROJECT LENGTH: 3 days (with 90 minute class periods)
DESCRIPTION: This lesson is a good and fun introduction to Adobe Photoshop. This is also a great way to get students analyzing advertisements. Students use their own silhouettes to create a design advertising a part of their personality or a skill they have. The gesture that each student chooses should be representative of the phrase he/she chooses.
1. Powerpoint which includes step by step project instructions
2. Student exemplars
3. Teacher exemplar
4. Brainstorming worksheet
**TIP - I print off the step by step slides and distribute them to each student so that he/she can follow along independently and reference past steps if necessary.
- Camera or smart phone with camera (we used our smart phones to create our designs)

*This project was created in Adobe Photoshop 5.5, but can be easily adapted to earlier or more recent versions of Photoshop.
- Students will be formatively assessed on their knowledge of Photoshop tools and use of design principles while creating their designs.
