The Getty Museum and the Teaching Channel have teamed up to produce a 19-part video series, available free online, that shows specific strategies for using art to engage students in all academic subjects. The videos are geared to elementary and middle school students, but also apply to students with mild to moderate special needs, and to the high school ELL classroom.

What’s in the Videos?

The videos feature Los Angeles students and teachers who have participated in the Getty Museum’s professional development programs. Our talented alumni demonstrate how to engage and inspire students by integrating the arts across a variety of grade levels, subject areas, and contexts in conjunction with Common Core standards. In this series, you can:

  • See a variety of effective classroom strategies for integrating the arts
  • See teachers model close readings of works of art by adapting with our free online teacher resources in the classroom and museum galleries
  • Take a five-minute refresher on building Common Core habits
  • Learn about Greek mythology through visual and performing arts
  • Experience a Getty teacher professional development workshop
  • Watch masterful art and science integration lessons

We’re delighted to share these lesson ideas and techniques with teachers, teaching artists, parents, and administrators, and we encourage you to watch them as part of your next all-school professional development program. Find them on our new For Teachers playlist on the Museum’s YouTube channel.
