Sculpture Comes Alive on Day 2 of the Summer Seminar

July 26th, 2011 7 comments

In the second day of this year’s Art & Language Arts Summer Seminar, elementary teachers feasted on breakfast in the Southern California sun and then feasted their eyes on impressive sculptures and sumptious furniture, clocks, and textiles. After learning about sculptures and decorative art objects in the galleries with curators, participants created their own sculptures of figures, snakes, and beasts!

Getty staff and teachers had such a fun time playing today. If you participated in today’s program, please leave a comment and share one way in which you can incorporate play into your classroom in a meaningful way.
