Plexiglass squares were used to mimic windows as part of the Brownie Outdoor Art Creator badge; the girls painted what they'd like to glimpse outside.
Feedback from Troop Leaders:
"Julie is an amazing instructor! Our troop completed two badges with her. I was blown away with the art pieces the girls created under Julie's instruction. The girls learned so much about art techniques and they left feeling so proud of their accomplishments. Julie inspired them and they can't wait to come back for more classes."

"We love Julie at The Curious Brush, as a Girl Scout troop leader I have appreciated her so much. We took our Daisies for the Outdoor Art Maker badge; she had all the requirements covered in one session and the girls had a GREAT time. I recommended Julie to my older daughter's Junior troop, they earned their art badge as well. She is amazing with the kids, all ages. Both troops had a great time and left with multiple art projects. She is very creative and can do any art medium you need. My girls said, 'Give her five stars!'"
-- J. Ervin, Daisy troop 2043 and Junior troop 1550, Sacramento
Handmade maracas created with clay and dried beans were part of the Daisy Outdoor Art Maker badge, and the girls listened to the sounds of nature.
