Art & Design Trip to Barcelona
One of our Art & Design School Trips
Students love Barcelona. It is lively, vibrant, laid-back and beautiful - it even comes with its own beach!
With a careful blend of educational, cultural and fun activities, a visit to the capital of Catalonia can provide not only an excellent introduction to the heritage and culture of Spain but can also examine its profound influence on Europe and the wider world.
Gaudí, Picasso, and Dalí are just some of the firm favourites for Art & Design groups visiting Barcelona, with opportunities to experience lesser known artists in some of Europe’s most dynamic gallery spaces. Gaudí’s influence on the city can be seen in his own iconoclastic buildings but also in the vernacular street art and graffiti that adorn Barcelona’s many corners. Wherever you look, inspiration abounds.
