Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Records consist of black-and-white and color photographs, color slides, black-and-white and color negatives, forms, and letters, 1985-1997, created for and used by the Getty Education Institute (GEI), and housed in the Slide Library. The images depict conferences and seminars organized and hosted by the GEI; art appreciation instruction in elementary school classrooms; adults attending lectures and museums; and publication artwork.
The Getty Center for Education in the Arts, also known as the Getty Education Institute for the Arts (GEI), was founded in 1982 with the mission of improving the quality and status of arts education in the nation's public schools. The GEI's programs were guided by three premises: the visual arts should be an essential part of every child's education because knowledge of the arts is a principal means of understanding human experiences and transmitting cultural values; art education's content must be broadened to include instruction in art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics—an approach known as discipline-based art education (DBAE); and the most effective art education programs are based on partnerships among teachers, administrators, artists, museums, universities, and parents.
