Girl Scout Troop 20025 earns Drawing and Painting badges

Girl Scouts of Western New York, Troop 20025, recently visited the Octagon Art Gallery at Patterson Library in Westfield while working on the Junior Drawing Badge and Brownie Painting Badge. The Junior Girl Scouts completed five steps to earn their drawing badges, including experimenting with different materials, learning how to add shading, getting some perspective, creating a graphic art design for Girl Scouts, and showing off their masterpieces. Many of these steps involved observing artists’ techniques at the Octagon Art Gallery. The Brownie Girl Scouts completed five steps to earn their painting badges, including getting inspired, painting the real world (self portraits), painting a mood (using puffy paint and salt art), painting without brushes (they used things like celery and plastic bottles), and painting a mural (they did this as a group).
