This program was the perfect balance between education and fun. I loved getting to meet new people while being immersed in new cultures and different ways of life. This program broadened my perspective and I'm so thankful to have met such wonderful people!
My favorite part of the trip was Berlin and being able to see firsthand a culture I've always been interested in. The Biennale in Venice was also pretty great.
During this program, we got to see so many different types of artwork, from extremely different time periods and cultures. It really helped me get a better grasp of art history in general. The experience of seeing the art in real life is so different from seeing slides on the screen. It definitely put art history into a more manageable perspective for me. Also, it was very rewarding to see art that we have talked about in class and recognize it immediately.
