What other teachers have to say about our programs!

Our trip was indeed enjoyable. I must say that it is truly a blessing that our students are able to participate in such a hands-on and fun field trip which educates them on the wonders of southwest Oklahoma. The fact that you are able to fund this opportunity for our students is truly what touches my heart. As an educator of 29 years, it is a sad reality that my students today are not allotted the same opportunity to experience hands-on learning through field trips like my students experienced 10 years ago. We thank you and your wonderful and talented staff for having the perception of knowing what you are giving to our students and finding a way to remove the barriers which keep these experiences from happening.

Thank you for all you do!

Youth Art Month – Take a Journey Through Art
Mar 1 – Mar 31 all-day

 

Art by Kyle Lokey

Art by FAME student Kyle Lokey

The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center continues its annual spotlight of area high school students in March with the Youth Art Month show. The 2020 nationwide theme is “Take a Journey Through Art. This will be the 10th year for the museum to participate in the national program.

Art is submitted by the teachers on behalf of their students. A public reception will be 3:30-5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5. All students, their families and other supporters of the program are invited to attend.

Students who are interested in having their work displayed should contact their art teacher. Teachers who would like to submit work can contact Leah Mulkey, CTHC Education Coordinator for details.

There is no cost to the students or schools to participate, or to attend the public reception. Historically, art entries range from 140 to more than 300 pieces of art submitted by more than 100 area art students. Past shows have included mosaics, scratchboard, drawings, collage, paintings and photography. Art teachers are encouraged to follow the theme, but it is not required. If you are a teacher who has never participated in the Heritage Center’s annual show, please contact Leah Mulkey in advance. Space is limited for art display.

For information, call 580-252-6692, or email leah@onthechisholmtrail.com or info@onthechisholmtrail.com
