School Art Trip to Glasgow
A school art trip to Glasgow is a great opportunity for your students to explore over 20 options of world-class museums and art galleries.
Glasgow is home to Europe’s largest civic arts collection with works by Van Gogh, Degas and Monet all waiting to be discovered by your students. If your students are studying for their art GCSE, they could use these visits to inspire work for their portfolio.
The city was named the UK’s top cultural and creative city by the European Commission in 2019, making this a great choice for a school art trip in the UK.
