You can either create a new presentation or open an existing one. Go to the home menu and select a new slide. Click on insert and select Text Box. Ensure that the text you enter in the text box is aligned in the center (to do this use the Ctrl + E shortcut).

Select the text, click on Insert and then WordArt, and pick the style you want from the menu. Then, go to Drawing Tools Format/ Shape Format and choose Text Effects and then transform. You’ll see a range of choices to change the shape of your selected text.

The options under Follow Path include Arch, Arch: Circle, Down, and Button. You can choose one that will work best for your project. If the text isn’t long enough to arch it, you can increase the font size.

Once done, you’ll see a yellow dot in the text field. Click on it with the right mouse button and hold the mouse button down to specify how far you want the arch to stretch.
