Boy Scout Programs
Boy Scouts of all ages can have fun learning experiences while earning arts and crafts badges/patches at the Figge Art Museum. A guided tour of the Figge's permanent galleries and traveling exhibitions is included in each workshop. Badge workshops are 3-hour events and include completion of all requirements for the particular badge the boys are working towards.
We also offer non-badge workshops through our Partner Program. Scout packs can schedule one of these 2-hour events that includes a guided museum tour and a studio art experience. Activities accomplished in a Partner Program can be often be applied toward one of the art badges in the Boy Scout manual. Registration is required a minimum of 2 weeks before the scheduled event. A minimum of 10 Scouts/workshop is required. Call 563.345-6654 or email@example.com to schedule a workshop.
