Our school is having an art show with the theme, "Walk A Mile in My Shoes." Each class is to have their own art project. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank You!

Maybe I'm thinking too literally about "shoes" but ...

It's really easy to use fabric paint on the cheap-o canvas shoes - they cost about $3 a pair at Wal-Mart. But I suspect other classes might also have that same idea.

Not sure what grade you teach, but how about a shoe mobile? It would require your students to become "engineers" to determine weight distribution, fashion a system for hanging, etc. You could group the kids into 5 or so, have them each bring in a shoe, and each group would make its own mobile. Each mobile would be different owing to the variety of shoes the kids bring in.

Or maybe make a tower of shoe boxes standing on their sides or ends, each with a special shoe in it. Have kids bring in all different kinds of shoes that are used in specific jobs or tasks (steel-toed, baseball cleats, high heels, ballerina slippers, nursing whites, cowboy boots, rubber golashes, etc.). It could educational and sculptural at the same time :-)

Hi
Our class just finished an amazing art project for mother's day involving shoes. We picked up high-heeled shoes at a rummage sale for a dollar a pair (50 cents a child). They then painted the shoe with a bright acrylic base colour. When the shoes were dry the children painted them with a contrasting color making hearts, stripes, polkadots (the eraser end of a new pencil), or anyhting they wanted. We then filled them with flowers from the dollar store & a bit of oasis. They turned out amazing. This would be great for what you are looking for. Oh, yeah, my class is a grade 3 class.
