When Mike and I go to an art museum, we look, admire and reflect. When Jackie and Jennifer go to an art museum, they draw. Well, at least that was the most interesting part of the Getty Villa to our two daughters!

While our daughters did enjoy walking around the villa, modeled after a first-century Roman country house, the Villa dei Papiri in Herculaneum, Italy, they were not interested in the art of the Greeks, Romans and Etruscans. Instead they visited the Family Forum, where they used whiteboard markers to decorate a vase.

Instead of watching art, they created art.
