Put it on Television

Lesson Plan Published 1/6/14 Last updated on 5/15/18


Students will be given the assignment to tell a story using their favorite television character(s) and “put it on television”. They will find creative and interesting images from the Internet to use to tell a story. Next, they will find a background to place the television character on to further detail the story. Finally, they will put their story on an image of a television. They are required to have at least 4 layers: a background layer, a layer for the television character(s), a text layer and the television layer. They will crop and erase any unnecessary part of the images. They will transform the picture to make it fit properly. They will make editing changes to enhance the images.

Sample Project

My favorite television characters are Lucy and Ethel from I Love Lucy. I used an image of Lucy and Ethel in Paris when they thought they were wearing Jaque Marcel original designs. In the original image, I placed them at Macy’s Department store in front of a counter selling Jaque Marcel handbags. I imported the images and cropped them to size. I used the eraser to remove excess parts of the images. I added a text bubble. Then, I placed it on television and created a background fill. I saved the image as JPEG file.
