Traditions of tiptoeing with your students through intimidating silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar are forgotten as the students find themselves interacting with art in ways they never imagined.
Self-guided School Excursions
Art and culture have been displayed and enjoyed around the world for centuries – but never like this.
From the moment you enter, a powerful and vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and aroma compels you to leave the world behind and immerse yourself in the artworks display – an experience that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational.
An excursion to Van Gogh Alive is not like any other, it’s a fully integrated multi-sensory experience that stimulates all the senses and opens the mind to inspire.
