About the Artist: Schoo Middle School 8th Grade Art Club, Adam Schwaninger

Art Specialist at Schoo Middle School

I am in my 5th year of teaching at Schoo Middle School. We are located in Fallbrook neighborhood. This is our second time participating in the event. The art club and I are using spray paint and acrylics to complete a scene of a sunset over the prairie.

Other rain barrels by this artist:
2010: "Nebraska Wetlands"

Artwork Interpretation: "Prairie Sunset"

In looking at images of the prairie we saw a lot of neutral colors. The students wanted to make something that stood out and had a lot of color. We noticed some great sunset images over the prairie and decided to make that the subject for our rain barrel. We used spray paint to create a bright background and black prairie grass and plants to give the piece bold contrast.
