We began the highly anticipated Beatles album cover project this week. The students are so excited to begin this project and have been formulating their designs to create their personal album cover. This is another STEAM based tie in to the music program. We have been listening to the Beatles albums throughout the year, talking about their music and how it changed the music of the time and helped influence the music of today. I brought in several album covers for the students to analyze and have a group discussion on the designs. We talked about the power of type font designs to portray a mood, the use of color as a symbolic tool and of course, the impact of a visual image. Each student decided what kind of music their album would portray and developed a visual map of colors, type font style and how they wanted their photo taken for the album cover. They had a few props they could use and then we had a photo shoot! They struck many rocking poses! We had a lot of fun with the photo shoot and I look forward to seeing the development of their album covers.
