Wednesday Teacher Workshop: Living and Dining in an Ancient Roman Villa
Wedesday, December 7, 2011, 4:00–6:30 p.m.

Programs for Teachers

Show your students how to experience the Getty Villa through Roman eyes! Education specialist Shelby Brown will show you how the Roman sense of privacy, space, and approach to food and dining was very different from ours. You'll choose an ancient persona and experience what it's like to explore the Villa as a member of the family, as a visitor, or as a slave.

Open to 20 participants. Sign up today by calling (310) 440-7322.

Poetry of Architecture

Find Lessons

Lyonel Feininger was one of the most important modernist painters of the 20th century. But he was also a photographer—a side of his work that this exhibition, organized by the Harvard Art Museums, is the first to reveal. See Feininger's innovative and experimental work with the camera, through a selection of over 90 photographs made at the Bauhaus and drawn from the Getty Museum's collection

Adapt the lesson "The Poetry of Architecture" and explore the exhibition with secondary students. Students will formally analyze Feininger's images of architecture and write related poetry.

Lesson Plan: The Poetry of Architecture

Exhibition: Lyonel Feininger: Photographs, 1928–1939 is on view at the Getty Center through March 11, 2012.
