Just for Brownies!
Suit up and set sail for Renaissance Europe! Explore master works like never before as you spend your afternoon with inventors, entertainers, and royalty of the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries. Guided by a Museum Educator, your scouts’ expedition across the Atlantic will showcase masters of art, science, and culture as featured in our Special Exhibition, Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe. Celebrate the Age of Discovery as you navigate your way into our art studio to create a masterpiece of your own. Brownie Girl Scouts will work toward their Painting badge, Junior Girl Scouts will work toward their Drawing badge, Daisy Girl Scouts will work toward their Courageous and Strong petal, and Cub Scouts will work towards their Art Academics Pin or Belt Loop during this interactive, two-hour exploration!
