Art, Design & Photography in Prague

Art & Design student trips to Prague

During the inter-war years Prague was a cross roads for eastern and western European art cultures, breeding a community of artists with a strong sense of innovation. That spirit was crushed by the Nazi invasion and remained inhibited by the Soviet domination. Today innovation is flourishing again. A beautiful cityscape of preserved architecture, worthy of UNESCO World Heritage status, Prague is an aesthete’s heaven.

Art, Design and Photography students on an Equity educational trip benefit from a variety of excursions, selected to enhance their understanding, perception and analysis of their subject.

Itineraries can be individually tailored to meet specific study requirements. Excursions include a visit to the Museum of Decorative Arts to see a fascinating collection of pieces that cross the boundary between applied and fine arts, selected to explore the fusion of form, functionality, beauty and quality.

The House of the Black Madonna is a superb example of cubist architecture and houses works of Czech Cubism and other schools of Czech and International art.
