We wear shoes just about every day. Have you ever stopped to look at a shoe through the lens of an artist? Of a designer? Of an inventor?
- Shoes/footwear worn around the world
- Shoes/footwear worn in the past
- Shoes/footwear made, but never intended to be worn
- Shoe/footwear exhibits in museums
What image/model will inspire your shoe sculpture? Make sure to locate and print three different views of the shoe you plan to create.
- Locate and search appropriate resources
- Vary search terms (don't use the same search terms over and over again)
- Think of synonyms
- Use Boolean searching
- Use "quotation marks" to search for exact phrases
- Be creative
Conduct a broad search (such as 'shoes' or 'sneakers') and then a narrow search (a designer's name or the name of a specific shoe).

BIBLIOGRAPHIES & CITATIONS
When you use someone else's words, work, thoughts, and/or ideas, you need to give the person credit. It doesn't matter whether you quote the person word-for-word or put it in your own words (paraphrase), you need to acknowledge where the words, work, thought, or idea originated. Otherwise, you are passing it off as your own.
