      The Getty

      The education department at the J. Paul Getty Museum seeks to inspire all of our audiences to engage with our collection and exhibitions through programs and resources at the Getty Center and the Getty Villa.

      The education department at the J. Paul Getty Museum offers a range of educational programs and resources for a variety of audiences at both the Getty Center and the Getty Villa. Through education programs of the highest quality, the department enables the Museum to engage and inspire visitors to look more closely and understand better the art objects they view. The audiences we serve include adults, college students and faculty, K-12 teachers and their students, families with kids, teens, community groups, and museum educators.

      The education department supports the J. Paul Getty Museum's mission to encourage the appreciation and understanding of art, and its history, context, and meaning, by:

      • Facilitating a variety of learning experiences centered on works of art
      • Developing interpretive strategies that promote visual comprehension of the collection    
      • Enhancing educational opportunities for a wide range of audiences       
      • Collaborating across the Getty in order to actively contribute to creative opportunities

      The department is active in documenting and assessing the effectiveness of its programs and projects. Learn more.
