Experienced and aspiring artists alike can learn through a hands-on, artist-guided project.

Cowboy Artists of America's Jason Scull and Brandon Bailey will hold a three-day western art workshop from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 26-28 at Texas Tech University's National Ranching Heritage Center (NRHC).

Experienced and aspiring artists alike will have the opportunity to learn through a hands-on, artist-guided project focusing on horse and figure. The workshop will consist of two sections: sculpture and oil painting. Each section will be limited to 10 students.


“We are honored to be partnering with Jason Scull and Brandon Bailey,” said Julie Hodges, the NRHC's Helen DeVitt Jones Endowed Director of Education. “Both are nationally renowned in their craft and provide a different tier of art education that is a valuable investment to anyone who partakes in this workshop.”

Investment for the three-day workshop is $450 for Ranching Heritage Association members and $500 for non-members and the public. Lunch will be provided daily, and participants will be responsible for some materials.
