Good Gaudi! Why Barcelona is the leading school art trip destination
Published: February 25th 2014
Travel to other side of the city and Parc Güell basks in the Catalan sun as Gaudi’s mosaics and sculptures inject a cacophony of colour. ‘El Drac’, the multi-coloured salamander is an intriguing figure facing down the steps of the park. The detail along the main terrace and time spent creating the mosaic highlights to students the dedication needed to become a great artist. While we speak of great artists it is hard to ignore the Picasso Museum in the La Ribera district. Little needs to said about Picasso where the work speaks for itself in many forms and languages, but the museum itself is home to one of the most extensive collections including some of his first major works. What is significant about this stop is the story told between Picasso and the city of Barcelona.
