Lots of boys think arts and crafts are for girls. Well I say it's all in the packaging and presentation. Not only calling your supplies "tools" but storing them in a toolbox adds to the masculine image.
The first step in earning the Cub Scout Belt Loop in Art is to identify and understand some of the common tools artists use.
I call this the Collage Supply Drawer even though these materials can be used for lots of things. There are feathers, sequins in different colors, shapes and sizes, colored rice (made with food coloring and hand sanitizer), pom poms in different sizes and colors and of course glitter. (I do have a daughter that uses this tool box also)
Tomorrow we will be going to the art museum to fulfill the second criteria which is understanding and exploring the use of lines, shapes, color, space, etc... in art.
Come back in a few days and we will show you a fun activity for the final criteria to earn the Art Belt Loop!
