My favorite part of this program was not just a certain place we visited but more about growing as a person by being able to see the world in a more independent way. You learn how to adjust to a culture different from your own, you learn how to use public transportation, and you learn more about what you are interested in as an art student. You find a pattern of things you find interesting or inspiring and ideas start to come to you. The experience is about education, and is ultimately for school purposes, however I think that the experience you gain as a person from learning who you are is the most important part.
Any art student with an interest in culture would be well suited for this program.
The most rewarding aspect of this program was gaining a breadth of knowledge about visual art and specifically visual art in different countries.
