Studio Art: Vans Shoe Design Contest

Well continue our design unit in Studio Art in 3rd quarter by working on creating designs for the 2019 Vans Custom Culture Contest.  Above are four shoe designs that were entered last year that were created by students then painted by AP art class and National art Honor Society.  Below is a closer look at our final collaborative ART shoe.
The contest this year has specific rules and themes so each student should create a design on the shoe templates for the three themes: OFF THE WALL, LOCAL FLAVOR & ART in color.  You can add any elements to the shoe you wish (they don't need to be wearable) but can't include any copyrighted materials like logos. Below are some examples of winning shoe designs that incorporated other elements.

The 3 designs will be due on Friday when we will vote for our favorites to submit to the first round.  If we are one of the 500 schools chosen as finalists we will once again get the free shoes that we must paint and create the final designs.  There are a number of great prizes, see the link above for more information.  Below is a short video showing finalist designs from 2016 showing their creative process.
