The backdrop group has been working on the layout for the background, which is everything behind the tigers and tree, such as the sky and the hills with words.
It has already gone through many stages to get to where it is now, but we’re still finding things to tweak and revise.
We’re thinking of changing the colours so that they’ll work better with the colours of the tree.
We were also thinking of replacing the leaves in the sky (parts of the Newton Public Schools logo) with cultural patterns. Though, based on the advice from the Advisory Committee, we’re reconsidering the cultural patterns.
The words on the hill represent the values that the students and the school have, and they are likely going to remain the same.
The background group has also been contacting companies to look for shadowboxes for our piece, which will enclose and help preserve it.
