Artist Workshop


Welcome to Our Heritage Guest Ranch and High Plains Homestead’s second annual Artist Workshop and Photoshoot.  We are teaming up to offer this amazing opportunity for artists of all levels and media to be immersed in our under explored landscape. You will have the opportunity to spend two plus days in guided and private exploration on Our Heritage Guest Ranch’s amazing, diverse landscapes, and at the High Plains Homestead’s furnished Frontier Village. Our ranches add visual options and our models include authentic cowboys or settlers, horses, buffalo, donkeys, cattle and more. The option to ride into our private wilderness in an 1880’s Stage Coach, with chuck wagon dinner included, will allow you to capture our unspoiled natural beauty, all bringing to mind the imagery of works by Russell.  Check our websites to familiarize yourselves with our lodging and properties. soon to be
