This portion of the painting is an image of growth and development.  It will provide context for figures representing aspects of education.  The figures will be painted later. By placing the figures and seedlings together the intended message is one of students mentally, physically, and emotionally gaining strength and complexity.  The Christ-centered composition addresses  spiritual growth.
