Artist Activity Badge

Choose from Options 1 or 2. Then complete all tasks under your chosen option.

Option 1: Artist

  1. Paint, draw or illustrate each of these:
    • a scene from a story
    • a person or object
    • a landscape.
  2. Show a selection of your own recent work. (Send it to your leader)

Option 2: Arts enthusiast

  1. Choose a favourite art form or artist to take an active interest in. It
    doesn’t have to be painting – it could be pop music, sculpture, theatre,
    architecture, break dancing or anything similar.
  2. Describe two visits you have made that are connected to your interest. You can use photographs, films, recordings, concert programmes, ticket stubs, newspaper reviews or websites to illustrate your point.
  3. Show that you know a lot about an aspect of your interest. You could talk about a particular piece of art, like a painting, performance, sculpture or building. Or you could discuss a particular person or historical period connected with your chosen art form.
  4. Make a list of major events, exhibitions or venues connected with your chosen subject. Talk about why the items on your list are important.

How To Submit Evidence To Your Leader

If your leader has Badges at Home Enabled

OSM has a new feature called badges at home! If enabled by your leader then you can have your parent log onto the OSM parent portal and submit evidence for your badge there. You can upload a document of evidence with photos, as well as attach videos you may have taken of evidence.

If your leader doesn’t have Badges at Home Enabled.

In this case, you will need to email your leader with the evidence. They should have an email address in the following format “firstname.lastname@sevenoaksscouts.org.uk”.

Hopefully they have told you this address if it is slightly different in spelling (or a shortened name). You should avoid sending any emails to a leader’s personal address because of GDPR.

You can attach evidence to the email such as a word document or a link to a google doc. Videos may be too large in size for this method so you may want to upload them elsewhere (As A Privately Hosted Video with your parent’s permission) and put a link in the email.
