Choosing a favorite part of this program is probably impossible. The whole trip was 18 days of favorite parts! I really felt like I bonded well with everyone, experienced everything I had wanted, and got to learn a lot about myself as an artist.
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!
I loved getting to know the people in my group and having the freedom to travel around the cities ourselves. We were able to learn firsthand what Italy was really like instead of being in a tour group all day.
