Girl Scout Senior Collage Artist Badge Workshop
This workshop is 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: Explore a Collage
The workshop opens with a presentation of the history of collage. Scouts will learn about the artists, materials, techniques, cultures, styles, and more.
Part Two: Focus on Composition
Miss Emily will explain the proper use of materials and then the scouts will each create a collage using the cubomania technique.
Part Three: Create with Color
Next the scouts will learn about color theory and create a collage with a color scheme of their choice.
Part Four: Use Found Objects
Everyone will create a collage using a large variety of objects. Scouts are encouraged to explore with composition, color, and texture to create a unique piece.
Part Five: Share a Message
After looking at some historical collages that shared a message, scouts will create a collage to advocate something they are passionate about.
