Sneaker Art*

Can sneakers be art? “YES!” says the pop culture art world! The retail custom market is being taken by storm by artists who are lighting the retail custom sneaker market on fire. Athletes, musicians, rappers, celebrities and even teenagers around the world are buying custom-made sneakers adorned with their own likeness, favorite drink or even their musical group of choice. Not to mention a few brands such as the NFL, MLB, NBA and WWE have signed on to these custom kicks.

Students in this class will have a unique experience to work with a female Michigan sneaker artist who was recently featured as one of Major League Baseball’s The Bridge, presented by CEO Act!on for Diversity & Inclusion during All-Star week.

Students will not only learn general art techniques, the tricks and tips of sneaker art, but students will also be customizing their own kicks during this class and will take them home to sport around their neighborhood.
