Top Honor in Fashion Design

A team of Memorial Junior High School students won first place in the fashion design category at the Olympics of the Visual Arts competition.

Olympics of the Visual Arts is a New York State competition sponsored by the NYS Art Teachers Association designed to stimulate young artists’ creative thinking. Students work in groups for several months creating a project for their category, as well as a portfolio documenting their ideas, research and process.

For this year’s fashion design category, the theme was big, bold patterns. The team created a wearable outfit using multiple patterns made from paper products.

The district congratulates the following team members on their achievement:
