Sneaker Redesign


Published on

This is another from scratch lesson plan that I teach with a color theory worksheet. It is the last project I teach in my color unit as a way to cap the unit and review everything, use color schemes, and make decorative papers. It may be a bit easy but It's simple enough to emphasize color decisions instead of a technical use of color. I've found it's hard to get students to classify their color scheme, but at least some do make informed decisions about their colors and their classification.

  3. 3. Paste Paper
  4. 4. Make your sneaker design big, big designs are easier to cut out.
  5. 5. Don’t cut out individual shapes. Cut and paste them on a larger sheet of paper, then cut and paste them onto your design. This way your edges are clean and crisp.
  6. 6. If you’re having trouble cutting out complex shapes, then layer your shapes. Cut out background colors as one large shape, then layer and overlap your sections.
  7. 7. Student Examples
  8. 8. Color Wheel Packet
  9. 9. Color wheel
  10. 10. Color wheel with tints Tints= Color + White
  11. 11. Color wheel with shades Shades= Color + Black
  12. 12. Complete color wheel with tints and shades
  13. 13. Primary colors
  14. 14. Secondary colors
  15. 15. Tertiary colors
  16. 16. Analogous colors Analogous= colors next to each other on the color wheel
  17. 17. Analogous color triads Analogous Triad= three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel On the left is the proper way to color in squares, on the right is the improper way to color in the squares
  18. 18. Split complimentary triad Split Complimentary Triad= a complimentary color pair where one color is split into two tertiary colors. For example Yellow and Violet are a complimentary color pair, you can split Violet into Red-Violet and Blue-Violet and add yellow to make it a complete split complimentary color triad.
  19. 19. Split complimentary triad Here is an example of another split complimentary color triad. This time blue has been split into Blue-Violet and BlueGreen. You will have to use a split complimentary color triad for your artwork, make sure you pick a triad that you like.
