Europe Art Trip
Twenty six Concordia students and three staff members jumped at the chance to see the sights, appreciate the history and marvel at the creativity on display in the galleries and museums of Italy, France and Spain during the European Art Trip in April.
Spending three incredible weeks abroad, the tour group enjoyed the trip-of-a-lifetime for any aspiring artist; admiring the beauty of Rome, Paris and Barcelona, visiting significant historic locations such as Monet’s garden at Giverny and taking drawing lessons on the streets of Florence. The Arts are a valuable component of our educational program at Concordia, fostering and extending students’ curiosity, creativity and passion for learning in a unique way. This biennial trip is just one opportunity students have to make valuable connections between classroom learning and the shaping-influence of the wider artistic world.
Jane Robson, Head of Art at Concordia College, reflected on the trip in the following way:
“We had worked our way from Ancient Rome and the Renaissance through to the Impressionists, Picasso and Miro in just a couple of weeks with each destination being just as exciting as the last. … I am sure that these experiences will last a lifetime for everyone involved and we are thankful for the support of the school and parents in allowing this trip to occur.”
