tIMBERLAND cREATIVE dISCOVERY tOOLS
CNSTNT DVLPMNT had the opportunity to strengthen its efforts by partnering with Timberland for a 6 week online program introducing footwear and color design using our Creative Discovery Tools.
Classes were held virtually with honor roll scholars from Mott Hall Bridges Academy, a middle school in Brooklyn, NY. These scholars ranged from 6th through 8th grade.
INTRO TO SNEAKER BOOT DESIGN + COLOR
We made a special Timberland edition of the Creative Discovery Tools, featuring sneaker boot templates and pages for adding color.
We also included an all-new comic for Lil Retro, where he receives the opportunity for a Timberland workshop at his school. This parallels the experience of the actual scholars!
TIMBERLAND GUEST SPEAKERS
To supplement daily instruction from our team of CNSTNT DVLPMNT mentors, we also featured designers from Timberland who talked about their creative process.
Scholars were able to gain insights and be inspired from seeing industry professionals that look like themselves.
Timberland’s goal to inspire diverse design students fits well for this collaborative effort. With a more inclusive world in mind, Timberland aims to support design education on multiple levels. This is part of their overall purpose in creating better product, stronger communities, and a greener world.
The mission of Mott Hall Bridges Academy (MHBA) is to create a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) environment where inquiry is used to develop critical thinkers through teaching and learning, and building positive relationships.
The STEAM focus prepares scholars to not only become independent, critical thinkers, but to also equip them for the challenges of the 21st century.
