Troop 2551 chose to complete their Brownie – World of Girls journey, and earn their Tell a Story badge, by hosting an art gallery of their work from throughout the year. For the art show, troop members invited friends, families, neighbors, co-workers and library patrons to come and see their displayed artwork and photography chronicling their journey and year as a Girl Scout.

The art show included pieces done while earning their Painting badge – including self portraits, still life paintings and paintings that expressed an emotion. The show also displayed the girls’ advertisement drawings that they worked on to showcase how media can be used to distort or stretch the truth. Some exhibits were created to highlight important aspects of their Girl Scout year including Disney princess artwork honoring their Disney on Ice field trip, decorated wooden houses to honor their Take Action project to feed the homeless and torn mosaic holiday tree artwork to celebrate last December’s holiday party. There were even pieces that focused on each girl’s individual strengths.

Combined with the art show, Troop 2551 also celebrated the end of their Girl Scout year and officially bridged to Junior Girl Scouts.
