Make something: Design a Skateboard (Ages 12+)

Join Max, one of our awesome MODA educators and fellow skateboarder to explore the design process behind making a skateboard graphic. Use digital tools to plan and design a work of vector art that will be applied it to a deck that we will provide. 

Students will: 

  • Be introduced to skateboard graphics from their beginnings in the 1960’s to current time.

  • Learn about the history of skateboarding and the graphic design of boards, as well as some lingo! 

  • Go from sketch to finished product

  • Iteration in design

  • Create vector art using the free open source program Inkscape

  • Learn the basic principles of graphic design in the context of skateboard graphics, including use of alignment, hierarchy, contrast, repetition, proximity, balance, color and space. 

Participation and materials fee: $60 non-members, $65 for MODA members. Price includes a full-size skateboard deck and admission to our current exhibition. This workshop is great for ages 12+. 

*Printing will happen off-site and your board will be ready within a month.
