About the Artist
Schoo Middle School, 8th Grade Art Club, Adam Schwanniger
The Schoo Middle School 8th grade art class and art club is led by, first year teacher, Adam Schwaninger. Although this is Schoo's first year as a school, there has been a lot of student involvement in clubs and extracurricular activities such as art club.
The students wanted to use the rain barrel as an opportunity to display Nebraska wildlife. The 8th grade students have learned about the Nebraska wetlands and its unique ecosystem. The scene on the rain barrel was sketched out by students selected peer representatives and then painted by the entire group.
