Campers Study Art and Horses

Posted: Updated:

If Mr. Ed was still around he'd probably have a lot to say about this camp. Theo Art School and Harmony Stables are holding a camp for kids who love art and horses.

Campers are getting their hands dirty, taking finger painting to a whole new level.

Seven-year-old Julia Aadnes says, "It's really hairy and you get lots of hair on your hands."

They say painting an actual horse is a lot harder than it looks on paper.

Ten-year-old Lauren Michael explains, "It was a lot different. You had to kind of paint the way the hair goes because you can't really paint the opposite way the hair goes because it won't show up very well."

That's not the only challenge the young artists discovered while painting a moving canvas.

Julia adds, "It's really wiggly so you can mess up really easy on it."

But that's okay, because horses are their muses.

Eight-year-old Bo Ellenbaum shares, "There are a lot of things you can do about horses, you could draw horses, you could paint horses, and you could make a little sculpture of horses."

The whole camp revolves around horses.

Art instructor Robyn Markhouse says, "They learn about the horses, they learn the parts of the horse, they learn horsemanship, they learn how to ride and they get to tour the stables and see what it takes to be a horse rider."

Twenty-nine girls signed up for the camp, the only boy was a horse named Thyme, and he was a very good sport.

Theo is offering a number of camps this summer. You can check them out at http://www.highprairiecomplex.com/theo/.
