My friend Kim McElroy and I have just finalized our outline for Drawn to Wild Horses taking place this September at Return to Freedom: The American Wild Horse Sanctuary. We’re so excited to be returning to this amazing sanctuary and for me personally, I can’t wait to see how much the Choctaw babies have grown.
Kim just sent me an email from a lady who wants to come to the class but wonders if her lack of art training would exclude her from the roster. She said she can’t even draw a stick figure but… ” it sounds like such a neat experience, just to be in the presence of the horses in their truly natural state and to watch what inspiration and flights of imagination that brings up. I bet it will be a fabulous experience for those in attendance.”
Kim replied, “Well guess what — you don’t even have to know how to draw stick figures to “qualify” for this class – a love of horses is the only prerequisite – that and the willingness to open your imagination to the wonder of being a child again in the company of wild horses, just like Carolyn Resnick’s Naked Liberty stories… ”
So for those of you who are drawn to wild horses and feel your heart stirring at the idea of letting your creative spirit run free in their company, please know that NO ART or horse experience is required – WE PROMISE
There will be a wide range of expressive and creative activities designed to deepen the experiences we have with the horses and without fail, no matter how we feel about our creative “abilities”, by the end of our 4 days, we will have created inspired and inspiring masterpieces that reflect the beauty of the horses, and also the beauty within ourselves.
Here is a link to an album from our Drawn to Horses Workshop here at Chiron’s Way this June and below are a few photos to show what fun we had.
