The designs here are some of the skateboard decks created for our color theory unit.
I can not take credit for this lesson. After finishing a quick study of color with color wheels and value paintings, I implemented Skateboard Deck Graphics from the Incredible Art Department, emphasizing color harmonies.
Not every student made a skateboard.
Students were given the option to design a skateboard, laptop or cellphone case. Students could also choose to use paint, oil pastels or both. In fact, the design above uses paint and pastels.
I am pretty excited to share these at our Art Show tomorrow!
