We are excited to announce we will be welcoming students and teachers back to the Museum in a limited capacity March–June 2022. This in-person field trip option is available to grades 6–12, for vaccinated attendees or those with a negative COVID test result within 72 hours prior to visit, on Wednesdays and Thursdays. To reserve a field trip for the Getty Center or Getty Villa, please review the information below for On-site Field Trips.

Additionally, we will continue offering free, interactive, close-looking experiences through our Getty Virtual Art Explorations program facilitated by Getty Art Educators via Zoom. Getty Virtual Art Explorations are available Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays at 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 11:00 a.m. PT for all grades.

You guys are amazing! My school in East L.A. has zero funds for field trips. You provided a field trip that not only educated, but inspired our students (and teachers too!)
Each year the Getty welcomes more than 160,000 K-12 students to the Getty Center and Villa to experience tours, programs, and creative spaces. A trip to the Getty is a multi-media experience; therefore, learning is enhanced through sensory and tactile inputs. Conversations about art can also spark an appreciation of culture and increase students' ability to think critically about the arts.

Art Education for Everyone

Every student deserves creative exploration of art, and we hope to provide an experience that enriches students' connection to it. At a time when art education is removed from so many schools and districts, especially in underserved communities, we hope to work with you to fill the gap. We can give you an arts education experience that can have a remarkable impact on students' academic, emotional, and social outcomes. Studies suggest that students who participate in a field trip to an art museum show increased empathy, tolerance and critical thinking skills. A strong arts education will inspire our next generation of activist, explorers, designers, and scholars. The Getty is proud to be a resource for Los Angeles communities.
