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.
Prior to the trip I had to drawn since my freshman year of school and was not very good at the beginning of my trip, to say the least. Throughout the trip I improved tremendously with the lessons we were given, as well as the opportunities we had to draw whenever and whatever we liked. Now that I am home, I love to look back in my sketchbook and see how far I have come in such a short amount of time.
The fact that we got to experience a variety of cities in Italy was very cool. I feel that I was able to experience more of the culture rather than just visiting the most touristy spots. Each day was filled with awesome experiences and great opportunities to learn, whether we were exploring a museum or viewing the amazing architecture and history around us.
