Artist Activity Badge

Choose three of these activities to do. You must have an adult with you while you complete these activities

  • Imagine an event, character or scene. Now draw it using a pencil, brush, pen or crayon.
  • Design and make a greetings card.
  • Make a poster advertising Scouting or a Cub Scout event.
  • Design and make a decorated book cover.
  • Draw or paint a picture of still life or a landscape.
  • Make a display of photographs on a subject that interests you.
  • Make a video on a subject that interests you.
  • Design and build a model.
  • Visit an art gallery.
  • Make a model out of clay.

You can use a computer to make either the greeting card or the poster, but not both.

Take photo’s and video’s of your Cub completing the tasks for your leader. When weekly meetings start back up your Cub can bring in their artwork to show to the other Cubs.

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 “”.

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.
