Beginners Photoshop Litter Campaign for your High School

Project Published 11/3/14 Last updated on 3/1/20

We did this project over a whole term. The learners absolutely loved it. The theme of the project was to highlight litter as a problem in the school and community. Through out the term learners learnt to use photoshop by completing a series of tasks. These included:

  • making accessories out of old milk bottles, selling them at school and marketing them on social media
  • making a digital moodboard n Photoshop as part of their design process
  • Designing TWO campaign posters for their local school environment
  • Exercises in Photoshop to learn basic tools like- selection, healing brush, content aware fill etc
The project ended with posting these posters around school and completing feedback forms on how effective their campaign was in total.

  • Photoshop

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

Trying to open the worksheet and instructions. Crashes every time. Defaults to Muse but it appears to be a .docx so I tried to force open in Word. When I download it says it is a "DMS" file. Also tried opening in the browser. Please advise. Thanks!​

I love the image Leigh Ann. Your children always seem to come out with fantastic ideas. I would love to have seen them discussing the topic and how they got to the final idea. I think the concept is fantastic. Love it! Well done

Thanks Leigh, I'll be able to adapt your Photoshop design in my school. We have similar litter issues.
