Although New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was Feb. 9-16, Jason Becker, art, hosted one of his own during his second and fourth block classes. Becker thought that this would be a new and exciting way to teach the students about fundamental art.

“I think this is a different of learning color theory and color schemes,” Becker said. “This kinetic way is a fun way to learn it.”

Becker isn’t the only one excited to participate on the catwalk. Some of the students are got excited for this extra credit project.

“I am super pumped to walk down the runway with Josh (Astle) because he will make things funny and it won’t just be your average runway strut,” Ellie Staver, 9, said. “I am also eager for some extra points.”

With this new activity, the students interacted more with the learning material in hopes of getting more connected to the curriculum.
