In St. Ives in Cornwall, your students will have the incredible opportunity to visit artists in their studios. And in Bristol, your students will see how social, political and economic factors have inspired the local street art scene and its most famous artist, Banksy.
Art school trips abroad
Art is such an important part of any culture, that the opportunity to travel abroad and learn about both the local art and culture makes a school art trip abroad an unforgettable experience for students.
You could choose to travel to any of the world’s major art capitals, including Paris, Barcelona, Florence, Venice, Rome, Amsterdam or New York.
You could even choose to visit Japan, where your students will learn about the unique artistic traditions that developed during the time Japan closed itself off from the rest of the world.
Or why not head to Berlin, where your students will learn more about how art can be used as a reaction to politics?
Wherever you choose to go, your students will have some unforgettable experiences of art that will leave them feeling truly inspired.
Why arrange an art school trip?
Immerse them in art
For students who are developing their knowledge and understanding of art, a school art trip offers them the exciting opportunity to learn more about art history and the important role that art plays in wider culture.
They’ll be able to see famous works of art for themselves and develop their own independent judgements and personal reflections of art. And they’ll also learn more about how historical and social context is important in terms of understanding a piece of art.
On your school art trip, your students will also learn more about how different genres and styles developed. And you may even be able to focus on how one particular artist developed over their career, finding out how their style and subjects were influenced by what was happening around them. For example, in Amsterdam you can visit museums dedicated to the life and works of Van Gogh and Rembrandt, and in Paris you can visit museums dedicated to Dalí, Picasso and Rodin.
On your art school trip, your students will have the incredible opportunity to better understand what influenced and inspired other artists will help them to better understand what inspires them.
And learning about what inspired and influenced other artists can help students to better understand what inspires and influences them as artists. Are they inspired by the environment in which they live? Are they inspired by world events and how they affect themselves or their family?
They’ll also discover new styles and perhaps even new media to work with. For example, in Barcelona they’ll see how architecture can be a form of artistic expression, in New York they can learn about photography and in Liverpool they can learn about digital culture and creative technologies. In short, your art school trip will help develop your students’ understanding of the possibilities available to them.
