My first project with Wallenberg High School went very well! They created posters addressing a social issue.
The students entered a poster contest as well and so far we have 9 finalists!
They had to come up with a good hook, main message and image for their posters and then do a mock-up.
I started by showing them some well-known social issue posters and some techniques they could use for getting the point across. Then I had students do some research a social issue that mattered to them and what they wanted to say about it.
I think they stuck their necks out to say some of the things they wanted to say and used some unique methods for saying it and I’m proud of them.
They created the final in colored pencil or marker and learned how to layer color.
