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.

The Long Hard Ride: A Commemoration of the Chisholm Trail
Jul 2 @ 10:00 am – Sep 28 @ 5:00 pm

“The Long Hard Ride: A Commemoration of the Chisholm Trail” is an installation exhibition by Oklahoma leather artist, Jim Weaver. On display July 2 – Sept. 28, 2020 at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, 1000 Chisholm Trail Pkwy, Duncan, OK 73533

Weaver’s exhibit will feature new work, with nearly a dozen large-scale leather hides displayed in the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center’s main exhibit room. Extensive research by the artist includes visual and written references of the 1870s cattle drives, drovers’ journals and geography. Using his leather craft skills, Weaver tells a story of history, and how humans are dependent upon the earth.

“Geographically, the scene will begin in San Antonio and end at the railroad stockyards in Abilene, Kansas,” Weaver said. Exhibit details will include the extreme weather conditions faced along the trail, a focus on topography, and more. His work has been featured in The Paseo Arts District, Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition Gallery, the Robert S. Kerr Environmental Research Laboratory in Ada since 2016 as part of its 50th anniversary, and most recently in France, among numerous other places. The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition provided Weaver with a funding grant for this exhibit.  To learn more about Weaver, visit his website.
