Celebrating Arts Integration

Getty Museum at night

The stars were out at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, January 24th. Elizabeth Escamilla, acting Assistant Director of Education and Public Programs, along with other dignitaries from the J. Paul Getty Museum, and Pat Wasley, CEO of Teaching Channel, hosted a star-studded screening of the Teaching Channel video series showcasing arts integration. This series was a collaborative effort between the J. Paul Getty Museum, Teaching Channel, and filmmakers Zachary Fink and Alyssa Fedele.

At the screening, the four teachers who took part in the series, Antoinette Pippin, David Cooper, Lindsay Young, and Lorenza Yarnes, were recognized for their efforts in opening their classroom doors and sharing their professional practice through video. The selection of videos received accolades from members of the audience, including educators, students, and community members alike.

We are appreciative of and thankful for all Teaching Channel teachers who open their classroom doors and inspire us to Get Better Together. And thank you to the Getty Museum for giving us the opportunity to see their fine work in arts integration.

Jennifer Clark and Jennifer Harrison are the directors of professional learning for humanities and STEM/GATE/AVID, respectively, in the Ontario-Montclair School District in California. Experienced teachers and former principals, they are the self-proclaimed Thelma and Louise or Ricky and Lucy of the district, depending on the day. They use Teaching Channel’s Teams platform for coaching, induction, PLCs, and trainings in their district.

Special thank you to Zachary Fink and Alyssa Fedele for providing the photos in this blog.
