artVenture 2024 Create-Your-Own Collaboration Team Project Proposal

Save & Return

Use an account to return to saved work.

artVenture is a statewide event celebrating creativity, collaboration and giving back! During artVenture, groups of Girl Scouts work with artists to create a piece of art from conception to completion. The collaborative artwork is auctioned off to raise funds in support of Girl Scouts Sprit of Nebraska allowing us to provide quality programming for all girls.

With the Create-Your-Own Collaboration Team option, you will form a team of at least four Girl Scouts, an adult volunteer project leader (team contact), and a collaborating artist volunteer. You’ll design your own project, setting meeting dates and times that work best for you, although teams must adhere to the artVenture 2024 artwork requirements and timelines.

The team will create one collaborative piece for the auction and each girl will also create an individual piece to keep as a memento of her experience.

If you have any questions, please email us or call 402.558.8189.

Team Contact Information

Each team requires an adult contact who will be the project leader. This could be a troop co-leader, a parent/caregiver, or another adult Girl Scout volunteer.

Collaborating Artist Information

Provide the name and contact information for the collaborating artist volunteer your team will be working with.

Project Information

Important Information

Please read the following information carefully before submitting this form:

After reviewing your proposal, a Program Specialist will email the team contact person and the artist the team is working with to let them know if they can proceed. Teams can then register their girls, set up their meeting date(s) and time(s), and begin working on the project. 

All projects must be completed before March 15, 2024. Artists must submit an Artwork Details Form listing information about the finished piece within two weeks of completing the collaboration (by March 15, 2024 at the latest). This form will be emailed to all teams and will ask for the name of the piece, final dimensions, medium(s) used, value, and artist(s) names. It will also require uploading a photo of the finished piece. These details will be used for the auction catalog and the art label.
Additionally, the team contact will be required to register all the girls who will be working on the piece by December 1, 2023. At the time of registration, there will be a $5* fee per girl, which includes the artVenture 2024 patch and an invitation to attend a special preview event with both in-person and virtual options. An event registration link will be sent to all approved Create-Your-Own Collaboration teams.
*Collaborating artists also may charge each girl up to $25 for materials; this will vary by project and is to be worked out between the artist and the collaboration team.
