For a creative break from the holiday routine, bring the family to Family Drawing Hour at the Getty Center on Saturday, December 17, at 3:30 p.m. In this one-hour guided workshop, families will draw from sculpture and paintings in the Museum’s collection and discover how artists throughout time have expressed their creativity with color. The program is geared for families with children ages 7 and up, but anyone can participate. Space is limited. Sign-up begins at 3:00 p.m. at the Museum Information Desk.

Join Family Art Stops at the Getty Center and get up close and personal with a single work of art in a half-hour, hands-on gallery experience geared for families with children ages 5 and up. From December 20 through December 31, this free activity is offered every day at 2:00 p.m. and again at 2:30 p.m., except for Monday, when the Getty Center is closed. Sign up at the Museum Information Desk 30 minutes before the program begins.

Art Odyssey for Families, a 45-minute journey through the galleries, is a fun, activity-filled experience for children (ages 5 and up) and adults to enjoy together.
