The J. Paul Getty Museum has launched Performing Arts in Art, a free new curriculum for K-12 teachers that allows teachers to engage students in visual art, performing arts, history, and language arts while meeting statewide and national content standards.
Designed for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students, the curriculum focuses on music, storytelling, dance and theater, using objects from the museum’s permanent collection as the focus of multidisciplinary lessons that address such questions as: How have the roles of performing and visual artists changed over time? How have musicians, dancers, and actors been depicted in art, and what does that reveal about the historical eras in which the work was made? Lesson plans provide step-by-step guides and handouts.
