Using idea boards to teach color schemes to 8th graders and give students an opportunity to practice with Photoshop. Here is a post for teaching color schemes to 7th graders.
Create an idea board on photoshop using a specific color scheme (analagous, complementary, monochromatic, neurtral, ect) and a related group of items.
Here are some examples:
1. I can use tools on photoshop to cut out objects and place in front of , beside, or behind other objects.
2. I can take my knowledge of color schemes and apply it to my idea board
[Things that must be included/ How you will be graded]
1. Good work habbits
2. Careful attention to detail (neat cutting on photoshop, good arrangement of objects, objects need to make sense)
3. 8-10 items that are related (ex. interior design, food, fashion, ect)
4. Obvious color scheme
5. Variety within textures, sizes, patterns, ect to add interest.
[How this project relates to graphic art]
Idea boards are the starting point of a design.
Photoshop is used for graphic design, and using it to create an idea board will only build onto your graphic design skills.
