School Trips - Art and Design trips to Barcelona with Equity
An Equity Art and Design trip to Barcelona will show your students the full breadth of artistic flair this fabulous city has to offer. Filled to bursting with Modernist and Surrealist art, the many museums and galleries are home to household names such as Dalí, Picasso, Miró and many more. Plus, there's the famed architecture throughout the streets and parks.
La Sagrada Familia, Parc Güell, Casa Milà and Casa Batlló are just some of the famous artistic attractions, but there's also the medieval Gothic Quarter, bustling Las Ramblas and the traditional Barceloneta district to discover in this vibrant city.
Why should you consider Equity for School Trips and Educational Visits?
The Catalan capital holds an extraordinary amount of influential art. Students can take advantage by drawing, sketching and photographing the many iconic buildings and take inspiration from their surroundings.
There are many fantastic museums where schools can get close up and study the vast collections of Picasso paintings and Dalí artworks, but a walk through the streets shows the architectural gems this city has on offer.
Here are some of Barcelona's finest excursions:
For any Art and Design student this residential building is a must, and a walk along the roof is a breathtaking experience. One of Gaudí’s most amazing works, it’s also known as La Pedrera, or ‘stone quarry’.
Explore one of the most extensive collections of this world-famous painter and an essential reference to better understand his formative years, especially up to his Blue Period.
This stunningly beautiful park is filled with Gaudí’s creativity and is one of the most famous landmarks in the city. Students can study the colourful mosaics and sweeping forms that draw visitors from all over the world.
Dali Theatre and Museum
Just North of Barcelona is Dalí's home town of Figueres and the location of this fantastical museum, devoted to his work. Typical of Dali’s style, it is a Surrealist masterpiece in itself and even contains the artists’ remains.
La Sagrada Familia
Gaudí's unfinished cathedral is one of Barcelona's most recognisable landmarks. Students will be in awe of the transept, central nave and spectacular vaulting. It’s an unmissable opportunity to see an architectural work in progress on this grand scale. There’s also spectacular views from the top over the city.
This UNESCO World Heritage site is another of Gaudí’s masterpieces. Students can tour the interior and discover the noble floor, the attic, the rooftop and the iconic chimneys.

"Drama Hut have worked with our school on many occasions. Each time, the workshops have been well planned out- with teachers ideas in mind, well executed by very enthusiastic practitioners and have been thoroughly enjoyed by all children! Each workshop has engaged the children enormously, using original ideas that involve the children through practical games and activities. I would recommend this drama company to all schools."
