The Getty Museum

The Getty Museum turns traditional art education upside down. Rather than introducing themes and ideas through art history and then applying those concepts to art-making activities, the curriculum elicits these building blocks as students are engaged in activities. The activities culminate in the construction of a portfolio.

The premier art educators, like Eliot Eisner, in this field have contributed to the curriculum-in-formation. The site contains lessons within a unit, gateways to other sites, opportunities for program development and garnering support, and a nice browsing feature.
