Delaney Jane Traynor, Summer 2017 Participant
I think the trip provided me an opportunity to have more "experience". As an artist, we use what we know to create art and illustrations, and by exploring the world, going out of our traditional comfort bubble, meeting new people, or trying new things, we expand on what we know. This, in turn, expands on the kind of art we are capable of making, which makes us better, more well-rounded artists. This trip gave me an amazing opportunity to do just that - expand my knowledge and capabilities as an artist. Not only that, but the trip did so in a way that made me feel comfortable, relaxed, and happy!

Seriously, the fact we climbed the Vatican without taking the lift and receiving the view of Rome I did was the most rewarding moment of my whole trip.

Seeing art that I learned about in Art History classes and then learning how to better create art simultaneously, and also experiencing design in a different country just before entering my last senior thesis class/semester.
