About the Artist: Friend Public Schools Art Instructor, Greg Holdren

Friend, Nebraska, population 1,100, lies 55 miles west of Lincoln on Highway 6.

At Friend Schools, all grades, K-12, are housed in one building. The art classes at all of these grade levels meet in the same room, making it easy to coordinate multi-grade level projects like the painting of this rain barrel.

We are building a new addition to the school and welcome everyone check out our school and community. We offer affordable housing, a peaceful life, and easy access to the rest of the world.
