School Art Trip to Amsterdam

An art school trip to Amsterdam offers your students the opportunity to visit an important cultural and artistic centre, where art and art galleries play a major role in the rich cultural scene.

Your art students will love Amsterdam – a truly diverse city with a great mixture of museums, theatres, design centres and annual events such as cultural festivals and art fairs.The gabled houses that line the canals take you back to the Dutch Golden Age, while the modern cafes, restaurants and galleries bring flavours and culture from all over the world.

Amsterdam's colourful mix of the traditional and the cosmopolitan makes a school trip here a wonderful option for your inspiring school art trip abroad. It's also a great choice if you're thinking of making your trip cross-curricular, with fantastic opportunities for history, science and religious studies.
