Suggested itinerary for School groups
Very few European destinations have more to offer art students than Barcelona, where many world famous galleries, museums and works of art of historical significance are to be found. The chance to discover them in this vibrant, cultured setting will be a memorable highlight of any school trip in Spain.
Here you’ll find the best of Antoni Gaudi’s architecture, including his magnum opus, the Sagrada Família, such an epic task that even after over a century of work this visually-stunning Gothic building is still not finished. Many other fine examples of Gaudi’s work, such as the Parc Güell and Casa Milà, are scattered around Barcelona and offer a superb introduction for students to his unique style.
Close to the city centre is an extraordinary sight, a building whose Modernist design and eye-catching glass exterior makes it immediately stand out among Barcelona’s older architecture. This is the Museum of Contemporary Art, exhibiting works from the mid-twentieth century onwards, featuring both Spanish and international artists.
Joan Miró was a painter and sculptor, who famously rejected conventional techniques in favour of a more experimental style, drawing on Haitian voodoo and large empty spaces for inspiration. A Foundation in his honour can be found on the Montjuïc hill outside Barcelona, designed by the artist himself as a series of terraces and courtyards that gives a natural feel to tours.
Take a coach trip out of the city to the town of Figueres, home to perhaps the greatest of all surrealist painters, Salvador Dalí. Previously an old theatre, the Dalí Museum has on display the largest and best collection of his works, including 3D collages, bizarre mechanical contraptions and many other intriguing pieces born from a truly fantastic imagination. This is one of the most inspiring and astounding visits on any art trip to Barcelona, absolutely unmissable and never forgotten.
