Scout Event Day: Afternoon Session

Saturday, Mar 4, 2023
1:15 pm — 3:30 pm

Join GRAM for a day of fun just for Scouts! On Saturday, March 4, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts of all levels are invited to take part in several activity stations throughout the Museum. Enjoy three floors of art exhibitions, games in the galleries, interactive elements, and art-making projects in GRAM Studio. GRAM staff and volunteers will lead all activities and provide all materials.

Registration required by February 24. Book early before spaces are sold out. To register, please contact Kristen Hoeker, Director of Learning and Creativity, at or 616.831.2930.

Activity Stations:

Become an Artist: Scouts will put their creativity to work in the GRAM Studio! Everyone is invited to create an artwork to express what makes them special, using fun materials to create a truly unique work of art.

Power of Photographs: Docents will guide Scouts through the exhibition Presence: The Photograph Collection of Judy Glickman Lauder. Scouts will explore the stories of the photographs, and then create their own photo that tells a story important to them.

Colorful Art: In the permanent collection, Scouts will explore how artists use color to express feelings and convey messages to the world. Scouts will play a game to explore how each color is used before making a colorful project to take home!
