We Spend an Overcast Spring Afternoon
at the Westside's Fabulous Getty Center
The Getty Center is a treat. Many MC101s bring guests on this self-paced field trip. After gathering everyone together in front of the Orientation Building, the MC101s are given an overview of their assignment and their assignment sheets. We drew 76 MC101s.
Most students break into small groups and plan their tour through the Getty.
Some students bring friends and relatives. They help with the assignment.

The assignment encourages the MC101s to tour all of the museum's galleries and information rooms.
 

The Getty also has many places where students can sit back and take in the setting.
In addition to being an indoor art museum, the Getty is also an outdoor experience. MC101s are encouraged to roam the Getty Center's grounds too.
The Getty Gardens are always a favorite.
At the end of the day, we returned to the bottom of the hill on the Getty's electric tram.

Take me back to the beginning of the day.
