iTunes Project

I wanted to share my latest 7th grade project inspired by the iTunes ads.  Students were asked to come up with an action that was descriptive of their personality.  Some students even brought in props.  We took digital photos of the students “in action”.  Using Photoshop, students extracted their silhouette and created their composition.  Each student chose a descriptive verb preceeded by the iTunes “i” along with the background color of their choice.  Every single project looks professional.  I am so proud of every one of my students!  This is just a sampling of the completed digital projects.  Students are using the grid method to create a painting from their digital compositions.

Barb - These are really terrific and you are right they look very professional. I think my favorite 2 are the iImagine (#1) and then the iCapture. They are all great though but thought I would let you know my favorites. You are such a great teacher Melissa and so creative too!!!!!!!

Christy - Love it, love it, love it!!! This is soooo cool! May I borrow this idea for a project with my fifth graders, Melissa? I may not be able to figure it out, but will adapt it in some way and as with the flip flops, I’ll credit your exceptional creativity.

Melissa - Thanks for all your comments everyone! Christy, feel free to borrow all you want! You could always take a digital pic of each student, print it b+w, then have the students cut out their silhouette with scissors. They could re-trace the cut-out onto black construction paper and attach to a colored background.

Christy - That will work! Thanks for the super suggestion! We’ll connect it to a writing project and save it for Open House for CSW. SEAS says “Howdy!”

Jessica Wilson - Hi,

My name is Jessica Wilson and I’ve taught middle school for many years and added art this year. I’d love some more details on how you did these silhouettes.
