School Art Day Trip to Paris
An art school trip to Paris offers your young artists plenty of opportunity to be inspired by some of the world’s most famous masterpieces!
Paris is within easy reach for a school trip and is home to some of the most important art museums in the world, including the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay, where many of the world’s most famous artworks are housed.
And just spending time in the elegant French capital will be inspiring to your students - stroll along the impressive Haussmann boulevards or visit Montmartre where many artists lived and worked during the Belle Epoque.
To get the most out of your school trip to Paris, we would highly recommend an overnight stay. Less tiring and much easier logistically, overnight trips often offer better value for money. Contact us for details!
