Curriculum Resource Spotlight: J. Paul Getty Museum

This is the third in a series of five posts about online curriculum resources. If you missed Post One  or Post Two you can certainly start here as they are not presented in any specific order.

The J. Paul Getty Museum website has helpful resources for teachers and parents looking to create an educational experience that is well rounded and includes the study a variety of types art. J. Paul Getty Museum website offers over 1,000 free lesson plans. You can filter by grade level, academic subject, resource type and the location of the featured artwork.

I think my favorite part is a Grade by Grade Guide to effective art lessons including differentiation for six different skill levels of students. This is a super resource for new teachers that will guide you in the creation of your own art lessons for your class. They even offer a lesson plan template.
