{Free} Getty Villa Art Adventure/Montessori Scavenger Hunt/Kinetic Art Activity


Getty Villa . . . such an unbelievably cool place.

Let's go and be tourists in our own town!!

On the plans are:

  • Guided Tour of the Outer Peristyle
  • Small Art Lesson "The Lost Language of Hands" in the amphitheater.
  • Montessori Museum Scavenger Hunt/Kinetic Art Activity
  • Potluck lunch in the outdoor picnic area

Yes. It's a free event. (well . . . you do need to pay for parking)

We have a timed reservation for a group of 100 AND a parking reservation for up to 100 cars (but we should try and carpool to make it less cars)

HOWEVER . . . your name and info has to be on the list for us give to the gate.

To lead an event at Getty Villa they do ask it that we try and carpool where we can. The form above will also be the Carpool Resource.
CLICK HERE FOR CARPOOL RESOURCE FORM (it's the same as the gate entry list). A few days before the event I will email you a link to the spreadsheet responses so you can then find a carpool buddy.

Attendance is NOT first come first served. Your attendance will be depending upon if you have filled out our google form to have your name on gate entry the list.

And yes, . . .the museum is fully aware we are coming and doing this. So it's not like we will get in trouble. But we still have to behave and follow rules. We will also abide by any and all Covid Rules the Getty Villa requires.

We look forward to you joining us on an Arty Adventure.

After the lesson we will then break people off into groups of 5 (or so) to continue the lesson and fun.

Lunch will in the picnic area reserved for us.
