New Project from the Getty Museum

Open Studio: A Collection of Art Making Ideas from Artists

In conjunction with Los Angeles-based artist and MacArthur Fellow Mark Bradford, the Getty Museum just released a new project that’s full of unique artist-designed activities. Through these activities, the internationally known artists (Catherine Opie and Kara Walker, to name two!), offer glimpses into their own art-making approaches and processes.

Although the projects are designed for K-12 teachers, some of these creativity-boosting ideas could be fun to try out at home with the 5 and older crowd.  Or, if you’re planning a trip to the Getty this summer, consider preceding or following up your visit with one of these lessons.
