Getty Villa Tour
December 7, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Learners in grades 6-12 are invited to join us on a guided tour of the Getty Villa. During the “Art of the Ancient World” guided lesson at the Getty Villa, students will experience the ancient world through investigating objects such as vases, sculptures, mosaics, and frescoes from the museum’s collection. Students will be encouraged to look closely at these artifacts and consider how the objects and ideas still have an impact on our daily lives today. Students will exercise close looking skills as they identify ancient myths and the Greek and Roman gods, goddesses, heroes, and monsters depicted on works of art from antiquity. They will gain a better understanding of the role of myth in ancient society, daily life, and culture.
Parking is free.
Tour is for learners in grades 6-12, younger siblings are welcome to explore the Villa with parents during group tour. All learners are free to spend the afternoon exploring the Villa after the guided tour.
