A virtual art experience will brush its way into the future as the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center (CTHC) will offer their Cowpokes and Brushstrokes classes virtually beginning Jan.11.

For those wishing to participate in these virtual classes, they will run from Jan. 11 through March 1.

CTHC will have eight, 45 minute sessions on Mondays from 1:45 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

According to a release, for parents or caretakers of the participants to participate virtually, they can pick up the supplies needed for each session's art project before each of weekly sessions.

After gathering the necessary supplies, viewers can tune in virtually for the story and dance time.

The Cowpokes and Brushstrokes classes are a hands-on art and music program for kids ages two through four.

A release states this will be a great opportunity for cowpokes to explore the process of becoming creative individuals.

Leah Mulkey, CTHC assistant executive director, said those participating will complete art projects using a variety of mediums including paint, dough, beans, beads, and more.

“This program introduces hand-eye coordination techniques and incorporates shapes and textures into the art projects,” Mulkey said.

From the unique and engaging projects developing, the sessions consist of a different theme for each of the classes, with one goal in mind — to have fun.

With the unique and engaging projects, they help students develop self-confidence and social skills.

The cost for CTHC members for eight sessions is $16 per child and $8 for each additional child. For non-members for eight sessions is $24 per child and $16 for each additional child.

The program is sponsored by a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council.
