Adobe Photoshop “iAm” Project gives students an opportunity to express their personality and interests as they create a silhouette from a picture of themselves showing off something that defines them. The lesson uses simple Adobe Photoshop techniques to learn the Pen Tool, work with backgrounds, layers and text. The lesson provides step-by-step instructions and also includes links to tutorials students can use as they need to complete the lesson.
This is a fun lesson for the beginning of the year to help students get to know each other, or a good lesson during the year to learn more about each other. These look great printed and displayed too! This lesson was created for an 8th grade class, but would be appropriate for any beginning Adobe Photoshop user.
