Using Photoshop to Create a Classroom Poster with the new School-wide Mission Statement

Lesson Plan Published 11/21/13 Last updated on 5/16/18

This resource was created for the Adobe Education Train the Trainer Professional Development Class. The goal was to help our teaching staff learn Photoshop by creating a classroom poster of our new mission statement to hang in their classroom. This lesson plan demonstrates how to use basic Photoshop tools, (place, move and text tools) how to place a background image on the file and use and move text. It is designed to be presented in a two hour class. There are samples of student work for the participant inspiration and a sample of a completed poster.

  • Photoshop

    Editing and compositing for photos, web and mobile app designs, 3D artwork, videos, and more.

Age Levels

I have included sample backgrounds and student work samples for the poster in the pdf portfolio.  It would be helpful to teach it in an area where you could display the samples and examples of student work during the class.  I taught it using a smart board with a projector.
