ARTREE goes LIVE!
FREE Live-stream Class with Local Artists!

Tuesday, March 24
10:30 to 11:30 am
Artist: Lisa Gilliland-Viney
ARTREE lesson: Paper Sculpture
Suggested ages: 6 –12* years

Lisa will show students how to create triangles, circles, squares, zigzag “stairs” and spirals
from paper strips. Students use these components to create a 3D paper sculpture. They learn first-hand how to create a stable structure that can end up looking pretty cool! Live-stream here: ARTREE goes LIVE!

Materials needed:
• Construction paper – pre-cut into strips approximately 1” x 6”. You will need about 20 strips for this session. A mix of different colored strips looks interesting, so this is a great project for using up assorted scrap pieces of construction paper (*older kids can create amazing sculptures) – have extra paper strips available!
• A pencil
• A small bottle of Elmer’s glue
• A piece of cardboard measuring about 4 x 5 inches (a piece of cereal box or tissue box works well)
• A piece of paper towel or hand wipe to clean up glue from fingers
• Optional: a pair of kid-friendly scissors

We are offering this for FREE, but donations at this time would be greatly appreciated! You may donate here: COVID-19 Fund

About our ARTREE program:
The ARTREE program, coordinated by the Multicultural Arts Center (the MAC), deploys professional artists who can teach art in Merced County schools. We also offer art instruction for After School programs (at the MAC and at other sites). This spring, we were excited and ready to begin instruction opportunities for home-schooled students too.

Like many, we have been asking ourselves how do we continue to do our job effectively during the COVID-19 pandemic. For ARTREE specifically, how do we continue to share the knowledge and gifts of our talented ARTREE artists with local K-12 students and their teachers, when schools and other local venues, including the MAC, are closed? Now, more than ever, we need to provide arts experiences for the students. Participating in the arts engages their imaginations and gives students a necessary diversion from the stresses of our current everyday way of life.

Here is some good news! We are launching ARTREE Goes LIVE! next week. This is a collaboration between the MAC and the Phoenix Creative Collective, to provide ARTREE lessons by live-stream! Beginning Tuesday, March 24, we will provide 1 lesson on Tuesday mornings and 1 lesson on Thursday mornings, from 10:30 to 11:30 am. We plan to work from the Main Gallery of the MAC. A production team consisting of Colton Dennis (our Executive Director), Andrew Burkum (of the Phoenix Creative Collective and all-around theatre expert), Lisa Gilliland-Viney (Education Director), and a featured ARTREE artist will bring your student(s) (and you, too) an ARTREE lesson to enjoy from the MAC! We will post the name of the teaching artist, the lesson, and a short list of materials to have on hand on a website that is currently under development. We will provide details as we get closer to launch.

For more information, email education director, Lisa, at education@artsmerced.org.
