Glen Ellyn Girl Scout combines nature, art in library program to earn Gold Award
GLEN ELLYN – Girl Scout Katie Bassett of Glen Ellyn has always loved doing crafts and spending time outdoors. This summer, she shared
her passions with local children as part of a project to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award.
“I really wanted kids to get excited about creating things because I love doing crafts and art and painting and all that, and I just wanted kids to enjoy it as much as I do,” said Bassett, 15. “I also love being outdoors, so I just thought of combining the two into some classes.”
Bassett held a series of seven classes on “Exploring Art and Nature” at the Glen Ellyn Public Library for fourth- through eighth-graders. Class activities included creating biodegradable planters and bird houses.
