Girl Scouts Paint for a Cause at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center
The Clearwater Community Volunteers Center sponsors an art workshop with freelance artist, Petrina Sharp, for Girl Scouts troop to benefit local group homes.
By: Clearwater Community Volunteers
The workshop was by freelance artist, Petrina Sharp. Sharp has 15 years of experience working with paint and also assembles custom-made mosaics. She creates art for interior decorators and custom home builders to incorporate into their designs. Several of her art pieces are installed in the Ritz Carlton Hotel of Santa Barbara as well as Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard's former residence in Phoenix Arizona, a nationally registered landmark.
Sharp kicked-off the workshop by introducing the Scouts to basic principles in painting such as the Rule of Thirds to aid in composition as well as the color wheel and shading.
"I believe that art is its own language. It's a communication from the artist's work to create the viewer's emotional experience."
Guided by Sharp along the way, each Scout was given their own supplies and put their newfound knowledge to use, creating their own unique paintings for the ensuing hours.
Nadia Sheikh, adult leader of Troop 32827, said, "This was such a wonderful experience for me and the girls. I couldn't believe how much fun the girls were having. Thank you [CCV Center] again so much for everything that you do for our troop. It means a lot to all the girls to be able to do something like this!"
The CCV Center provides its facilities and services at no cost to nonprofits as a means of creating a safer community by supporting the growth of groups like the Girl Scouts.
