Junior Matthew Menoni designs clothing for a brand called “Closure” 

Menoni collaborated with other people to start this local business. During quarantine, he utilized his time by getting creative with designing street style clothes and other products, like posters and stickers that have dark and deep imagery.  Menoni and his co-creators do all the business components, from production to marketing. 

Menoni is motivated to create clothing since he “loves seeing people wear my clothing. Anyone from Big artists like Trippie Redd or people from school.”

Visual arts teacher Susan Berns challenged her students to get crafty with household items and produce a sculpture. As a result, the students came up with a variety of amusing pieces. 

 

Berns presented this to the administration. She explains, “The students, the ones that were interacting with me, are positive. They see the light at the end of this dark tunnel at the time, especially back in March and April. To me, that’s what life is about. It’s about finding your joy, pursuing the journey that you’re supposed to be on,” said Berns.
