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. 

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
