Wednesday Teacher Workshop: Roman Portraiture
Wednesday, February 9, 4:00–6:00 p.m
The Getty Villa

Programs for Teachers

The Roman empire's history is filled with stories of combat, triumph, alliance, and scandal. In this workshop we'll focus on primary sources, including sculpture and literature, which demonstrate how ancient Rome's portraiture reflects its colorful history, and how images were used as propaganda tools. Recommended for teachers of grades 6-12.

See all upcoming Wednesday Teacher Workshops.

Call Visitor Services at (310) 440-7300 to register.

Personal Connections with Photography

Find Lessons

The latest installment of our In Focus exhibition series features the tree. Through the works of artists such as William Henry Fox Talbot, Carleton Watkins, Alfred Stieglitz, and others, this exhibition spans the history of photography to address the image of the tree in its many connotations: as a graphic form, a universal icon of strength, and a symbol of the beauty of nature.

Explore this exhibition with ESL students in grades 4-12 and use the lesson "Looking at Landscapes Lesson 1: Finding Yourself in a Landscape" to explore personal connections with these images.

Lesson Plan: Looking at Landscapes Lesson 1: Finding Yourself in a Landscape

Exhibition: In Focus: The Tree is on view at the Getty Center February 8–July 3, 2011.
