buffalo stateAre you interested in majoring in the fine and performing arts in college? Do you want to talk to real students and professionals in the fields of the fine arts, music and dance? Then join the Buffalo State Campus Girl Scouts on Saturday, May 3 at the Buffalo State Campus!

All Girl Scouts, Daisies through Ambassadors, are invited to attend.

Here is a look at what each of the workshops provided will focus on:

  • Music: Led by the Buffalo State branch of the National Association of Future Music Educators, Daisies will get to learn songs and moves to show off to their friends and family. Brownies and Juniors will learn about all the different instruments and figure out which one might be the best choice for them! Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors will get a tour of the college-level facilities and learn about what it might be like to study music in college.
  • Dance: With the help of the Buffalo State Pop Dance team, all girls will learn an exciting form of dance that is used on campus to promote school spirit and build excitement at the Buffalo State sporting events.
  • Fine Arts: The girls will work first apart, and then together to create a collaborative city design using puzzles, a quilt and many other materials such as colored pencils, markers, crayon and construction paper. Led by a graduate student in Art Education, after each girl creates her own work of art, they will be combined together to create one amazing, Girl Scout artwork!
  • Museum Arts: At the art museum housed on the Buffalo State campus, the Burchfield-Penney Art Center, award-winning college artist Russell Ram will lead the Girl Scouts in a collage project that links words with images. As each of us responds differently to visual images, every piece created will be unique and personal. Beads, ribbons, and all types of collage materials will be incorporated into these one of a kind works of art.

The cost to register is $18 per girl and includes the cost of materials for the workshops, a Festival of the Arts patch, and a Festival of the Arts t-shirt. The deadline to register is April 28 and payment is due by April 30.

To register, e-mail or call (315) 879-2397.
