Hamlin Brand Shoes

Grade 2 students recently created unique and colorful shoes in their art class. The shoe-building project was a fun way for young artists to explore paper sculpture.  The girls first studied Andy Warhol’s shoe advertisements from the 1960’s, then designed the type of shoe they wanted to build.  Girls used templates for flip-flops, flats, high tops, and more, working with tape and glue for construction.  The final step was applying color by using liquid starch and tissue paper. Below is a closer look at a pair of rainbow-inspired shoes.
