For the past few weeks, the freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors have been planning and plotting their poster designs for spirit week. Every year, HB is impressed by the intricate details and sizes of each class’s posters, but not everyone considers the time and effort it takes to create them. Senior Kristi Fox, who has helped create the posters every year, said that “it takes a long time and requires a lot of prep. You need to make sure you have the right amount of paper in advance to make sure it fits in your spot.” In addition to this, Madilyn Partridge ‘17 said “Not having a lot of background space is important. You need to fill up the empty space.”
From the other end of the class spectrum, Teresa DeMaio ‘20 said that the freshmen created their outlines in a separate meeting, and then painted the poster afterwards. She also said she absolutely plans on doing it again, and having three more years at HB, she has many more years of poster painting to come.
As expected, everyone’s posters achieved resounding success, continuing the legacy of incredible artistry among all of HB’s classes.
