Design Your Own Sneaker or Shoe

Artist:  Salvador “Kickstradomis” Amezcua

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_NdbVNBo44

So many of you have inspired me thisyear with your sneaker designs, I thought let’s see what everyone can do!  In this document is a link to “Kickstradomis”story, a small part of his journey, but I think it’s an important one for youall to hear! 

Directions:

First: Lightly sketch out or trace the outline (contour) of your sneaker orshoe on a piece of paper.  For those ofyou who have an old shoe to spare, draw right on it if you want!

Next: Think about what inspires you, or what you’d want people to know aboutwho you are

Then:  Sketch this idea inside the outline of yourshoe, as if you were designing and creating the design on the shoe itself.  If you have materials that can add color, gofor it, if not it’s ok. 

Last:  Outline with a black thin tip marker, take aphoto of it and send to your art teacher.

Look in the kitchen cabinet and find a food you like. It could be a can, acereal box, a juice carton, candy wrapper, or any type of package! Look closelyat the packaging and draw it. Try drawing it a second time using bright boldcolors Like Andy Warhol did!

DESIGN CHALLENGE 1!  ZENTANGLES

ZENTANGLES!!

Whatis Zentangling and how can you creat one? A Zentangle is a miniature abstractwork of art created by a collection of patterns.

Zentangle Anyone?

AZentangle is a miniature abstract work of art created by a collection of patterns.

Itis typically done on a 3 ½” x 3 ½” paper “tile” using a pencil and a black pen.The small size allows for a work of art that can be completed in a relativelyshort period of time. The “zen” part of it is that it can be a very relaxingand meditative experience.

Hereare some “basics” to get you started…

Youcan use any size paper you like, but I do think a square is a good idea.

Useany kind of paper you have on hand, plain, lines, no matter!

Useany black or blue pen you have at home – even a pencil would work, whatever youhave around!

Usinga pencil, put a small dot in the each of the corners of your paper.

  • Connect the dots with a line, not necessarily a straight one though.
  • Using the pencil, sort of “scribble” in some lines, going this way and that, until you have created several spaces on the paper.
  • Using your black pen, create a different pattern in each one of the spaces that you have drawn with your pencil.

If you like, do someshading with a pencil.

Zentanglers create asignature of sorts, most use initials, and put these in the bottom right handcorner of their Zentangle. You can also give your work a title and date on theback.

Another idea is to draw an object ~ anything ~ aflower, an animal, even your name and fill the spaces with pattern!

HAVE FUN!!!

Here are some examples of line patterns and textures you can use to fill in your spaces.
