Art Trip to Barcelona

At the start of the Easter holidays, 16 Sixth Form art and photography pupils set off for Barcelona. The three-day trip was packed with a mix of galleries, sketchbook drawing and photography, as well as visits to some of the city’s famous landmarks: Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell.

On Saturday evening pupils were treated to a spectacular light projection show on the roof terrace of one of Gaudi’s houses, providing stunning views of Barcelona and the surrounding countryside at night.

A good deal of time was spent walking and discovering the narrow streets of the Gothic quarter, where pupils visited the stunning Picasso museum. The old streets were a contrast to the very modern building that houses the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Cultural Centre of Barcelona, where the pupils visited an interesting exhibition about the history of Photobooks.

The eclectic and varied architecture of the city, combined with the colourful street life, provided a great cultural experience for the pupils. They have returned to school feeling inspired, with exciting photos and sketch books to document their trip.
