Girl Scout Brownie Painting Badge Workshop
Badge workshops are specifically designed in conjunction with the badge requirements. Each scout will have a packet to work from throughout the workshop. Depending on age level, the packet provides corresponding readings, graphics, note-taking space, and questions.
Part One: Getting Inspired
The workshop opens with a presentation of famous works of art. Scouts will learn about the artists, materials, techniques, cultures, styles, and more. Miss Emily will then show and discuss some of her own art. The presentation will transition into a conversation and attempt to have each scout identify what they like or find inspiring.
Part Two: Painting the Real World
Miss Emily will explain the proper use of materials and then the scouts will each paint a still life. Several arrangements will be available for the scouts to choose from.
Part Three: Painting a Mood & Part Four: Painting Without Brushes
Scouts will discuss different moods and how colors or shapes can symbolize them. Each scout chooses which mood they will incorporate into an abstract painting. Everyone will explore painting with all sorts of crazy supplies on a canvas. This is a fun activity that results in a variety of unique paintings!
Part Five: Painting a Mural
After talking about murals, the scouts will work together to create one. Collaborating on a work of art is a great teambuilding activity and teamwork will be emphasized.
