This is one of the rare chances to get hands on and down and dirty to make something with nothing but your hands, some tools, and a lot of creativity. In advocating for the development and search for talent, and also giving teenagers a chance to discover their hidden talents or turn their thoughts into something tangible with the help of some of the world’s leading designers and artists. In conjunction with the upcoming http://freshnessmag.com/2010/06/09/nike-jordan-brand-converse-and-usab-announce-world-basketball-festival-2010-in-nyc/”>Nike World Basketball Festival, http://nike.com”>Nike has also partnered up with Smithsonian’s http://cooperhewitt.org”>Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and Make Something!! to hold a series of art and design workshops for teenagers this July and August.
The workshops allow teens to interact world renowned artists from different fields and designers from the Jordan Brand, Nike, Nike Sportswear, and Converse. The design workshops are rather interesting as they give participants a chance to get some hands on experience in designing footwear, apparel (The Nike Destroyers Jacket is one of the canvas used!) and even balls. The art workshops span through various different projects such as music, puppets, mural, photo, video and post production.
