For the final- giant- huge points worth project for Photoshop CS5, the students had to design their own magazine cover.
We discussed the defined 8 parts of a magazine cover and looked at some magazines together to identify the parts. Here are the activity sheets we did together in class.
After we looked at the ingredients to MC, they had to create a rough draft using construction paper and this worksheet:
The final result of their rough draft was this:
They then took their rough draft and created their cover in Photoshop CS5. I was pleased with a lot of them. These are just a few, I think they look pretty professional, don’t you?
Our class loves comments! Tell us what you think- good or bad- we love constructive criticism….sometimes.
