Girl Scout Outdoor Art Badge Workshop

This program has sold out. Please see our Girl Scouts page for information about other programs you can enjoy with your troop at Hillwood.


Calling all Girl Scouts! Earn your Girl Scout Outdoor Art badge with art-making inspired by Hillwood's spectacularGirl Scouts in the Japanese-style garden gardens.

See outdoor artwork and find colors, shapes, and ideas in nature as you stroll Hillwood's grounds at your own pace, using an activity booklet that leads you on a self-guided adventure to discover blooming flowers, lush gardens, and natural woodlands.

Meet RJ Lucas, botanical artist, and founder of RJ in the District, a local small business with a goal of bringing more color and joy into our homes and spaces through art.

See RJ's artwork, learn about how she gets inspiration from the outdoors, and get some tips for creating your own nature-inspired art. Then create your own pressed flower suncatcher to take home!

This program fulfills all requirements to earn the Daisy, Brownie, Junior, and Cadette Outdoor Art badges.

Reservations are recommended due to limited capacity.
