Looking for something different to do with your Daisy, Brownie or Girl Scout Troop? As You Wish has great options! Whether you are looking to fulfill the requirements of your Potter Badge or just a creative meeting idea, we’ve designed projects around core Girl Scout values. We are happy to help you “Discover, Connect, and Take Action!”
May is Girl Scout Appreciation Month at As You Wish!
We appreciate everything that Girl Scouts stand for! That’s why during the month of May we are waiving Girl Scout Studio Fees* when you paint with your troop! So make a reservation today and schedule a field trip to As You Wish! It is a great end of year celebration!
*Potter Badge not included
DAISY GIRL SCOUTS
Daisy Flower Box – Reinforce the Girl Scout law and all the colors of the Daisy Petals by painting a Daisy Flower Box!
Flower Pots – Paint a flower pot for your personal garden or to share with your community.
BROWNIE GIRL SCOUTS
Girl Scout Circles – Me, Family, Sisterhood, Community, and World. Paint a plate that encompasses the Girl Scout Circles as a reminder to connect the circles for healthy relationships with others and yourself and to build your circles from the inside out!
As You Wish will work with your troop to fulfill the requirements of the new Brownie Potter Badge:
Find some Pottery: We will take a tour of our studio and point out and discuss all of the pottery we use in our daily lives.
Get To Know Clay: An explanation of what clay is and how to properly store and care for it.
Make a Simple Pot: We will make a pinch pot with their clay slab*
Make an Art Piece: We will make a simple sculpture with their clay slab*
Paint and Glaze It: We will learn about underglazes and overglazes, paint a six inch tile, overglaze it, and learn about the firing process.
$12 per painter includes all supplies, glazing and firing, 6 inch tile and As You Wish souvenir patch. Minimum of 6 painters.
*Due to time constraints clay items will not be fired. Participants can take them home to dry or save the wet clay to work with at a later date.
JUNIOR GIRL SCOUTS
Abstract self portrait – take your self portrait project a step further and learn how to paint an abstract self portrait using Picasso’s artistic style.
Get Framed – Frame your self portrait with a custom designed picture frame!
Community Service – As You Wish is certainly always available to partner with you on your community service project. If your troop decides to bring art to underprivileged kids, beautify a community with a tile wall, provide cookies for home bound seniors on hand painted cookie plates, or host a fundraising activity for your favorite charity and more, we are always willing to discuss the possibilities! Please contact your local studio manager for more ideas and pricing information.
Even if you aren’t working on your Potter Badge As You Wish is still a great place for a creative field trip! You can coordinate it with a badge project, for example – Paint a Bank after earning your Money Sense Badge and set goals for personal savings or saving for a troop event. Turn an 8″ tile into a memo board. Once it’s glazed and fired, you can write on it with dry erase markers. Or – just come in for some colorful fun! Either way, we have great rates for Girl Scouts and are happy to work with you in planning your meeting or event.
