The Addison Center for the Arts presented “Courageous & Strong: Girl Scouts’ Budding Artists”, an exhibit of art by the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana Service Unit 537. “Courageous & Strong” opened Wednesday, June 19, 2019, and continued through June 29, 2019. Everyone enjoyed the artist reception with the Girl Scouts on Friday, June 21 from 6 to 7:30 PM.
“Courageous & Strong: Girl Scouts’ Budding Artists” is an art exhibit featuring the art projects of many troops from the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana. The ages of the artists range from girls that are Daisies in Kindergarten and 1st grade, Brownies that are in 2nd and 3rd grades, and Juniors that are in 4th and 5th grades.
The girls worked on projects throughout the year either in school or during Scout meetings/gatherings and have a wide range of art pieces from painted rocks, to sculptures, sketches, paintings and more.
As members of Service Unit 537, our girls do so many things to give back to their communities all year long such as volunteer at PADS, raise money and food for food pantries, create awareness for disabilities, make blankets for kids in pediatric hospitals, collect things to recycle and reuse, and much more to try and make this world a better place. This exhibit was organized to do something for the girls. This show is meant to celebrate just one of their many talents and is something they really enjoy."
