This museum houses a spectacular collection of Western art from the Middle Ages to the present. Artwork includes European paintings, drawings, manuscripts, sculpture and decorative arts, and European and American photographs.
Upon arrival, the students took a tram up to the top of the hill where the Getty is located. Even before stepping inside the Getty, the students and teachers were impressed with the gorgeous and breathtaking views of L.A. that were visible from the top of the hill.
When they entered the Getty, the students were already in awe of the dramatic architecture of the building itself. Everyone meandered through the museum at their own pace, stopping to ponder over their favorite artwork. Some students completed questionnaires about the artwork that their teachers had given them.
Then, the students went outside of the building and visited the peaceful gardens at the Getty, which provided some beautiful plants and flowers, along with more gorgeous view of L.A. The students had a great time exploring the artwork and hanging out with each other and their teachers.
