Resources for Educators


Grade-Level Curriculum

LACMA has developed curriculum materials in conjunction with Art Programs with the Community: LACMA On-Site. The creation of the curriculum reflects the museum's desire to provide teachers with resources to enhance their visual arts instruction. All the curriculum materials are based on works of art in LACMA's permanent collection and were developed in alignment with California State Content Standards.
