Girl Scout Classes

EAC’s Girl Scout Classes were created by an active Girl Scout member, and are designed to promote positive body image and high self-esteem.  Girls ages 10 – 14  will use art as a medium to challenge the typical definition of “beauty” and “perfection” and express what they truly admire about their important female role models. (students do not need to be Girl Scouts members to participate!)

Saturday, November 1st: “Words of Inspiration”

Mixed Media – Choose a woman you look up to.  Bring a photo of the woman to class.  Write down words that describe her, and things she inspires in you, and gifts that this woman has.  Incorporate a photo of this person, along with the words and thoughts, in a painting. Materials - 11″ x 14″ canvas, acrylic paints and brushes, pencil, photo, and gel medium to overlay photo.

Saturday, December 6th: “Inspirational Women”

CollageChoose your favorite “barbie” profession and your favorite “real life” female of the same profession.  For example, Barbie the Teacher vs. your 2nd grade teacer, or Princess Barbie vs. Princess Di.  What makes your favorite real life female special?  Her patience, her inspiration, her good works?  Write down all the reasons you can, and choose the top ten words that describe her.  The words will then be created over and over again in different types and sizes, cut from magazines and newspapers, and then used to create an inspirational collage. Materials - Bristol board, magazines, newspapers, computers and printers, gel medium

Saturday, January 3rd: “It’s a Doll, Not an Aspiration: Part 1″

Assemblagecreate your own “The Voice of Reason: It’s a Doll, not an Aspiration.”  Students will first choose images of women’s faces from non-fashion magazines, like Newsweek or Time.  They will focus on eyes and smiles.  Students will create a sculpture of a female – head, shoulders and hands.  They will assemble the sculpture, the photos, and a small “Barbie” into a three dimensional assemblage. Materials - Wooden shadow box, small doll, magazines, acrylic paint, clay, beads, recycled scraps of fabric and other art supplies.

Saturday, March 7th: “Voice of Reason Charm”

Jewelry – students will create either a necklace or a bracelet, incorporating the “Voice of Reason” charm.  During class, positive images and role models of women will be discussed, focusing on what is truly important, to get the girls thinking about true beauty and strength.  That is beauty in actions, beauty in a job well done, beauty in helping others, etc.  The charm will be the focal point of the piece, to encourage questions and dialog with friends and family as well as strangers, to allow the student opportunities to discuss “the Voice of Reason” after the class is over. Materials – beads, wire, clasps, tools, voice of reason charm
