Programs at the Getty Center focus on European art from the Middle Ages to today; programs at the Getty Villa explore the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria.
We offer a range of gallery courses, studio courses, culinary workshops, handling sessions and artist demonstrations and projects throughout the year.
At the Getty Center
Discover the art, culture, and cuisine of Victorian England in this culinary workshop led by Maite Gomez-Rejon of ArtBites. Explore early photography in the exhibition A Royal Passion: Queen Victoria and Photography, then learn the history and practice of the English high tea, and prepare a traditional tea service complete with the scones, jams, and tea sandwiches that would have been served in a well-appointed Victorian home.
At the Getty Villa
Antiquity is often associated with white marble, but in reality, the ancient world was brightly painted and decorated with bold color made from natural pigments. Join instructor Elmira Adamian for sketching exercises in the galleries, then return to the studio to create acrylic paintings that creatively envision the classical world in full color.
