Sneaker Creation

End Product: Pair of Sneakers

The Sneaker Creation program offers apprentices the opportunity to experience what it’s like to create their very own sneaker. We introduce them to professional graphic design software which is used to help them create the best product. Through our program, they will learn the ins and outs of the software and take their idea from drawing to physical sneaker. We expose apprentices to a career that they may not have even thought was possible. One of the most important aspects of this program is taking apprentices from the mindset of a consumer to a producer. Many kids easily spend $300.00 on a pair of sneakers and what we want to teach them instead, is to invest that money in their own sneaker business. All the skills being taught to our apprentices throughout this course are transferable to thousands of other jobs across the globe. We will also inform them about the various colleges that specialize in this field of study.

Course Stages:

  • Drawing
