Comic Artist Badge for Cadette Girl Scouts

Comic Artist Badge Workshop for Cadette Girl Scouts in Palo Alto.

I recently led another workshop for a troop of Cadette Girl Scouts in Palo Alto, Ca. I love working with Girl Scouts. They are intelligent, creative and dynamic girls.

When I arrived at the house of the one of the leaders, the troop, adult leaders and the girls, had all the materials ready. We were able to get going almost as soon as I arrived.

The girls were so focused that we were able, to my surprise, to cover all the  required steps to earn the Comic Book Artist badge. The process included learning about the world of comics, choosing a story, writing and drawing a three-panel comic strip (pencil, ink and color (optional) and sharing it. The girls chose their own topics.

I gave the girls the option of sharing their work on my website. After the workshop, the leaders scanned the comic strips and sent them to me. Look at their pages below. Aren’t they great! The girls learned quite a lot in such a short time. And they earned the legacy badge, Comic Artist. I hope they keep doing comic pages!

P.S. As a child, I was a Girl Scout (Jeannette) in Montreal, Québec. Here in Palo Alto, I led a Girl Scout troop for 12 years. I was also a GS facilitator, training Girl Scout leaders for Girl Scouts of Northern California, for many years.

Girl Scout Workshop. Some amazing pages! Atelier pour les guides. Des pages extraodinaires!

A few weeks ago, I was invited to give a one-hour comic book workshop to a group of about 20 Junior Girl Scouts in Palo Alto. I helped the girls create a one-page comic book describing the service project they chose and the steps they needed to take to realize it. All about leadership and working as a group! You can click here to find out more about the workshop and to see some of the work in progress from the girls.  Now, you get to see the final page of three of these Girl Scouts. Thank you to the leader who brought over their work. Congratulations to the girls for producing such amazing comic-pages!

Il y a quelques semaines, j’étais invitée à donner un atelier d’une heure à un groupe d’une vingtaine de Guides (Girl Scouts aux USA), niveau Junior, à Palo Alto. J’ai aidé les jeunes à produire une page de BD décrivant leur projet de service communautaire et les étapes nécessaires à la réalisation de ce projet. Leadership et travail d’équipe! Vous pouvez cliquer ici pour en savoir plus sur l’atelier et pour avoir un aperçu des premières étapes de leur travail.  Mais aujourd’hui, vous pouvez voir le travail final de trois de ces jeunes filles. Merci à leur cheftaine d’avoir apporté leurs dessins. Félicitations aux jeunes filles pour ces merveilleuses pages de BD!
