We do love this trip

Hi etr, We do love this trip… and year after year, are very pleased to repeat it. BH and his 100 middle school students travel to Granada and Cordoba with etr each each spring.

Here you’ll find six of our Art Capitals, cities we found which have distinguished themselves by providing the student traveller with a wide array of world-class, art focused opportunities. Over our 25 years, art teachers and their students from the world over have discovered the wealth of world famous museums and cutting edge galleries, all with etr leading the way.

But don’t forget, these cities also offer exceptional cultural diversions and activities which allow for a well-rounded, time-efficient, etr experience.  As each and every one of etr’s programs are custom designed, we can tailor your art discovery to meet your specific requirements. 

Take a look at the cities currently listed and let us know where your interest lies.
