News: Open Studio Project - Los Angeles

The Open Studio Project was conceived by Los Angeles artist Mark Bradford, and is the inaugural effort of the Getty Artists Program, an extension of the Museum's education department. The Open Studio Project makes it possible for more schools to have an artist-in-residence, virtually. Any K-12 art classroom with an Internet connection can bring in art-making activities created by a roster of international artists. For example, students can work with Australian photographer Jon Cattapan to create a "Personal diorama", or explore color with painter Amy Sillman, who suggests going on a color tour of your town. Mark Bradford's three-part assignment on "recreating the familiar" is designed to "help you to see more clearly how you feel and relate to the immediate world you live in." Students work with text, rearranging the lyrics of a familiar song that they get to choose, draw a map of the school lunchroom, and create self-portraits with their eyes closed.
