The J. Paul Getty Museum has produced a new video series aimed at helping educators work the arts into their teaching based on new standards known as the Common Core.

The 19 videos, released as a free online resource this week, were produced in partnership with the nonprofit website Teaching Channel.

“Arts integration is a powerful tool for student learning, and we’re committed to providing teachers with the resources they need to integrate the arts into the Common Core curriculum,” said Elizabeth Escamilla, Getty's acting assistant director for education, in a written statement. 

Students and teachers from the Los Angeles Unified School District and Hawthorne School District are featured in the videos, which offer tips on melding the arts with language arts and other topics.

The video topics include:

  • Interpreting Ancient Art in Social Studies
  • Applying Knowledge at a Museum
  • Performance as a Culminating Activity
  • Building Analysis Skills Through Art
  • Evaluating Art Through Different Lenses
  • Studying Balance in Art and Science
