We spent a fair amount of time in each city, so I felt like I could get a good sense of what it would be like to live there. I found visiting art museums and programs very rewarding and these experiences will help me grow as an artist.
I gained an incredible sense of independence and self-discipline on my trip abroad. The program I was in was intentionally very open-ended and the amount of work you put in was very relative to what you got out of it. It was such a short trip that if I chose to be lazy for a day, or put off a journal entry I would lose out big time. No one was telling me to take notes of this or sketch that; everything I did was up to me, so I had to be very disciplined about working without a specific assignment.
My favorite part of the program was participating in Picture Berlin. This was an all day art walk which was the best possible introduction to the art scene, culture, and history in Berlin. It was really exciting to meet other people working in the same field I am hoping to become a part of.
