Your art school trip to Barcelona and the Costa Brava will see your students inspired at almost every turn!

Catalonia and its capital city, Barcelona, have produced some of the most influential artists and architects of the 20th Century, including Picasso, Gaudí and Dalí. The city is famous for being home to some of the world’s most beautiful, eccentric architecture - your art students will enjoy seeing these modernist creations scattered across the city.

You can, of course, choose to stay in the heart of the city for your school art trip to Barcelona, but most of our groups prefer to stay in one of the quieter coastal resorts on the Costa Brava, as this offers the best of both worlds!

Plus, Barcelona is an incredible destination for almost any subject, including Spanish, fashion and food technology, so you could also consider making this trip cross-curricular.
