Creative posters in the classroom can inspire students to become engaged and motivated in learning art. Within the classroom, there are many places to put posters so that students can read them (especially when they get bored in the classroom) - on the cabinets, near the chalkboard, on the teachers desk and any spare space on the wall.
There is cultural significance for using creative posters in the classroom; like advertising - the posters operate on a cultural level to provide symbolic associations between images, media figures, and values related to the students lifestyle (Alperstein, 2003). Creating creative posters for a lesson, discussion, or example as part of this lesson helps students develop their critical thinking skills.
