Junior Drawing Badge Workshops, Dec 1 & 15

junior_drawing_largeJuniors will be working with professional teaching artist, Sis. Deborah, to complete their Drawing badge at two troop meetings on December 1 and December 15. Girls must attend both troop meetings to earn the badge.

The Junior Drawing badge is all about learning techniques to make your drawings even better. Girls will experiment with different art materials, learn how to add shading, get tips on perspective, use their imagination like a graphic artist, and make their own masterpiece. Finally, Juniors will have an art showcase in January displaying their masterpieces inshaAllah.

In addition to two sessions of drawing lessons with Sis. Deborah, girls will receive a Take-Home Masterpiece Kit, which includes the following:

  • 4 Sheets of Bristol Drawing paper
