The Art+Film Teacher Institute fosters interdisciplinary connections between visual art, media literacy, and the core curriculum. Using LACMA’s galleries as inspiration, school teams work together to create a short film inspired by a work of art. The production process explores the parallels between reading, writing, and filmmaking, emphasizing independent and collaborative art-making. Program activities and materials address California State Content Standards for the Visual and Performing Arts, LAUSD Media Arts Standards, and California Common Core Standards for English/Language Arts. The Art + Film Institute is made possible by The Rose Hills Foundation. Learn more.
