Paris: The Perfect City for an Art & Design School Trip

Travel & Tourism,Education
The romance and beauty of Paris has always proved an irresistible draw to artists, art collectors and historians, making it an obvious choice for teachers looking to bring the works of the great masters to life. Not only does Paris have a fantastic range of museums and galleries that highlight work from across history, but the city itself exudes an atmosphere of genuine creativity.

On a school trip, your students will be able to walk streets trodden by Gauguin, Pissarro, Manet, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Cézanne and Matisse, and then see their representations of the city they loved. Design students will not only love the modern art in the famous Pompidou Centre, but will be inspired by the cutting-edge design of the building itself.

While there is never enough time to see all of the works in Paris, a four-day school trip would be a great way to introduce students to the major exhibition spaces here. Here’s my suggestion for museums and works to put at the top of your must-see list.

The Louvre

A great place to start your exploration of Paris’ art history is at its most famous (and popular) gallery, The Louvre. Housed in the historic Louvre Palace, it is a vast space dedicated almost entirely to European works from the fourteenth to nineteenth century. The 60,000sqm of exhibition space really deserves a full day of your school trip.

While most students will want to head straight for Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, try and encourage them to look around, as there’s plenty more here to catch their eye. Works by Michelangelo, including the sculpture of the Dying Slave and his painting of the Death of the Virgin, Van Dyck’s Charles I, La Belle Jardinière by Raphael, and Bathsheba at her Bath by Rembrandt all demand attention.

The Musée d’Orsay

Converted from a stunning Beaux-Arts railway station built at the end of the nineteenth century, the Musée d’Orsay is a breathtaking exhibition space that illustrates the progression of nineteenth-century painters towards Impressionism. From the French Realism of Gustave Courbet’s A Burial at Ornans to Renoir’s Bal du Moulin de la Galette on to the works of Manet, Cézanne, Monet and Van Gough, a visit here is a pleasant walk through nineteenth-century art history.

Musée de l’Orangerie

Another gallery in a fantastic Parisian space is the Musée de l’Orangerie, specifically built as a tranquil space to house Monet’s water lilies. There are not many students who can stand in the rooms that house Monet’s water lily series and not feel awed by the scale and technicality of his achievement.

The Pompidou Centre

Not only is the Pompidou Centre home to work by some of the world’s leading modern artists, but the square in front of the museum is a bustling hub of street entertainers, young Parisians and tourists. GCSE and A-level students will love the lively vibe here and, for those who prefer a modern approach to the old masters, the exhibition will not disappoint. From Rothko and Pollock to Warhol and Man Ray into contemporary artist like Thomas Hirschhorn, this gallery will not fail to stimulate students’ imaginations.

There is so much to see on a school trip to Paris that it is definitely worth letting a specialised educational travel tour operator organise your trip for you. From sorting out gallery opening times, tickets and special exhibitions to arranging central accommodation and places to eat, a specialist tour operator will take the stress out of organising a residential so that you can concentrate on encouraging your students to engage with this inspiring city.
