Lesson 9: Carnival Posters

Computer Art: Grades 9-12

In this project, I had students use their earlier developed Carnival Character that they created in Photoshop (they had to create a carnival sideshow character using themselves, and loosely basing it on their identity while exploring the Elements and Principles of Design). They embedded these Photoshop creations into Illustrator and using their new Illustrator skills, the students created a poster. Students explored visual communication with text and visual/decorative elements, as well as balance and focus in order to SELL us their character show.

Here are just a few of their posters. Enjoy!
