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.
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.
I felt the cultural experience was the most rewarding aspect of the trip. It was a completely new environment for me, and I found I was really able to learn a lot about the history and culture of Italy firsthand.
