Time to enroll for the winter Cowpokes & Brush Strokes session that begins Monday, Jan. 27.
Please read through all this information if you are interested. There’s even a FAQ section below!

Cowpokes & Brush Strokes is a hands-on arts and music adventure for kids ages 2-4 and their “big person” to explore the process of becoming creative individuals.

8 Monday sessions: 1:45 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Monday, January 27 to Monday March 16

Cost:
Chisholm Trail Heritage Center Members – 8 sessions for $16/additional child $8 (Become a member today when you enroll your child)
Non-members: 8 sessions for $24/additional child $16

This program is one of our most popular programs and fills quickly. We have limited space available!
Call today (580) 252-6692 to reserve your cowpoke’s space or email leah@onthechisholmtrail.com

FAQ:
Do we have to bring our child/children every week? No, but the price is the same as you are paying for the 8 week program.

What if you cancel a Monday session because of bad weather? We will extend it another week to make up for that missed day.

Can I bring my infants or other siblings? Yes, but the program is for 2-4 year old children, and supplies are for those who are enrolled/paid in the program.

Do I have to stay with my child during the program? Yes, this is not a drop-off program. Parents and or grandparents must stay and be responsible for your child. The art activities are designed for parent and child interaction.

What can I expect from this program?
This program helps children build social interaction, and a child may feel shy the first time or two, but we encourage you to continue to bring your child each Monday. We have seen friendships form between the children and parents, with many returning for future programs.

Each Monday is a different theme, with art, storytelling and music. The children create art projects they take home with them each Monday.
