Notes

A new version of the Sculpture Merit Badge pamphlet was issued sometime after the publication of Boy Scout Requirements 2007.

The new pamphlet has revised requirements as well. Although the requirements in Boy Scout Requirements 2007 remain official until January 1, 2008, Scouts should also be able to use the new requirements in the pamphlet, which are as follows:

  1. Explain to your counselor the precautions that must be followed for the safe use and operation 
     of a sculptor's tools, equipment, and other materials.
  2. Do TWO of the following:
        a. Model in clay a life-sized human head. Then sculpt in modeling clay (such as Plastine or 
           Sculpey) or carve/rasp in wood or soft stone a small-scale model of an animal or person. 
           Explain to your counselor the method and tools you used to sculpt the figure.
        b. Make a plaster mold of a fruit or vegetable. In this mold make a copy of the fruit or 
           vegetable. Explain to your counselor the method and tools you used to make the copy.
        c. With your parent's permission and your counselor's approval, visit a museum, art exhibit, 
           art gallery, artists' co-op, or artist's studio. After your visit, share with your 
           counselor what you have learned. Discuss the importance of visual arts and how it 
           strengthens social tolerance and helps stimulate cultural, intellectual, and personal 
           development.
  3. Find out about career opportunities in sculpture. Pick one and find out the education, training, 
     and experience required for this profession. Discuss this with your counselor, and explain why 
     this profession might interest you.
