Arrive in Amsterdam
An art school day trip to Amsterdam is ideal for art groups, thanks to the sheer variety of art galleries and museums, all within easy reach of the UK!
Diversity and liberalism are what Amsterdam is famous for, and the atmosphere this has created has also helped to foster an environment in which creativity thrives.
Amsterdam is also a city that holds an important place in the history of art. As well as some of the more modern works, make sure you also take in some of the masterpieces of the Dutch Golden Age. And should you decide to stay a little longer, we also offer multiday art trips to Amsterdam!
