Express Your Mood in Paint

Girl Scouts will find a painting at the museum that appears to express a particular mood or feeling.  Then, with help from the instructor, each girl will create her own painting of a subject that she associates with that mood or feeling.

Painting Without a Brush

Girl Scouts will learn to visually interpret the world in two-dimensions without the use of a paintbrush.  By the end of the session, each girl will complete a self-portrait or a painting of a friend.

The Art of Book-Making

First, the Girl Scouts will tour the Albrecht-Kemper’s Art Library. Then, each Girl Scout will make a journal using non-traditional materials. This can be a great tie to the Media journey, and learning how to “power down” through journaling.

The Art of Collage

Girl Scouts will learn about the history of artistic collage. Then, each girl will create a collage with a chosen theme using both two-dimension images and three-dimensional objects. This is a great tie to the Journey Girltopia through learning to express yourself through the medium of collage.

Girl Scouts Comic Artist Badge

First Girl Scouts will learn what comics are and how they work, along with the different types of comics. Each girl will subsequently get four sticky notes. Then they will use the sticky notes to make a comic based on what they now know about comics. The girls will present their new comic to the group.
