The Getty videos are called "Art Education in Action" and have
proved very useful for us for teacher inservices. You can
purchase the entire set of five tapes (ten 30 minute lessons)
for $65.00. The videos are also available individually for
$15.00 each. More information can be found about them on
ArtsEdNet or you can call (800)223-3431. The videos present a
sampler of DBAE art lessons as developed and taught by teachers
in their own classroom.
