Welcome to the city that never puts down its paintbrush. From galleries showcasing the best in contemporary international artworks to graffiti-strewn subway trains, the Big Apple has long been a hive of creative inspiration. A school trip to New York offers young artists the ultimate experience for learning outside the classroom.

The Museum of Modern Art in New York aims to deepen the understanding of art and foster dialogue on all forms of visual expression. Works on display range from photography and film to performance art and architecture, and visits can be tailored to meet the requirements of your group. In keeping with its mission, the contexts of all MoMA exhibits are thoroughly explored.

New York’s Guggenheim Museum is a work of art in itself. Designed by Frank Lloyd-Wright, the building, an inverted cylindrical shape, is widely-recognised as one of the most important architectural icons of the 20th century. Intriguingly, the Guggenheim does not divide its voluminous collection of modern and contemporary art into departments, but integrates them naturally, making for a fluid and involving visitor experience.

For any art trip to New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the world’s most renowned institutions is simply unmissable. Works by Van Gogh, Versace, Degas, Warhol and Botticelli sit among an incredibly extensive collection of paintings, sculpture, textiles and ceramics, spanning centuries, cultures and civilizations from the medieval to present day. This is the definitive introduction to world art.

Students will find much to love at the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum, part of the prestigious Smithsonian Institution. Found in the former mansion of industrialist Andre Carnegie, and dedicated to discussion and understanding of the role design plays in our lives, the museum has an incredibly diverse and rich collection spanning over three thousand years, including 600 types of button, and bizarrely, over a thousand playing card designs!
