Kinder-artists at Oakhurst Elementary love rodeo time, which is an annual event in Fort Worth, Texas. The spirit of the Old West pervades as children don jeans, hats, boots, and bandannas to be a cowboy or cowgirl for the day. Furthermore, Fort Worth is a city that celebrates not only its history as "Cowtown" but also the fine arts! An amazing number of world-class museums offer excellent educational programs to local schools. In this article, the author describes how Oakhurst Elementary kindergarten students' enthusiasm for rodeo has become a source of inspiration for these students in their art classes. In addition, classroom teachers reinforce the rodeo theme with vocabulary development in the language arts block.
