Taking school groups on adventures overseas can prove invaluable in helping them learn more about their studies.
And one subject where students particularly benefit from educational trips is art and design.
While there are many galleries to visit in the UK, heading to some of the biggest exhibitions in Europe and the rest of the world can help teach pupils more about this particular topic.
If you're interested in taking your school group of budding artists on holiday, Equity School Travel can help you find the perfect trip, tailoring the expedition to suit your – and the pupils' – requirements exactly.
Where to visit for art and design school trips
There are so many places in the world that are famous for their forward-thinking architecture and artistic history that it can be hard to pinpoint a location to visit.
We can help you pick a destination that will be just right for the type of art, artist and historical period the students will be learning about.
Europe offers a wide selection of options for art and design school trips, with Florence, Paris, Barcelona and Rome being among the best places to visit in Europe and New York an excellent destination further afield for teenagers intrigued by the subject.
You can see original works of art by Michelangelo, or examine pieces created by Botticelli.
Indeed, by embarking on an expedition to Europe, you'll be able to see some of the most famous works ever made.
Come up close to the Mona Lisa in Paris's Louvre or see examples of cubism and abstract expressionism in Venice – heading abroad gives students the opportunity to experience these pieces firsthand, giving them a far better idea of their intricate detail than a book can.
