Getty Museum and Artist Mark Bradford Launch Online Curricula for K-12 Art Teachers


LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Getty Museum and artist Mark Bradford today unveiled Open Studio: A Collection of Artmaking Ideas by Artists, a new project conceived by Bradford, an LA-based artist and MacArthur Fellow, to provide free online arts activities for K-12 teachers to use in their classrooms. Open Studio is the inaugural project of the Getty Artists Program, an expanded effort to involve contemporary artists in the Museum’s Education programs. Bradford designed Open Studio to provide brief, accessible activities that don’t require a great deal of preparation or supplies. A teacher can click, print, and immediately share them with his or her class. In partnership with Bradford, the Museum asked some of the world’s most exciting contemporary artists to join him in designing activities: Kerry James Marshall, Xu Bing, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Jon Cattapan, Catherine Opie, Graciela Iturbide, Kara Walker, Michael Joo, and Carrie Mae Weems all contributed activities to the site, which
