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.
"Water, the World's Greatest Resource"
Students have painted themselves onto the beach and into different depths of water, involved in a range of activities associated with the wonders of water.
We present a student level view of the importance, beauty, and entertaining possibilities of our world's most important natural resource.
