I learned much about the art of the Renaissance, as well as other influential periods of local history. I also learned much about myself as an artist. - Alfred University View Entire Review
I learned about a new culture that I didn't know much about beforehand. I also got to learn about that culture while I was in it, walking the streets everyday to photograph, shopping, and dining in the restaurants.

Past Review Don't Be Afraid!
It was so worth it. I had such an incredible experience. Homesickness is always an element, but once you overcome it you really have an experience that makes you grow in ways you didn't think were possible. - Virginia Commonwealth University / VCU View Entire Review
The ability to work in a city like Florence had multiple benefits. I felt constantly inspired by the history and beauty of the city, my patience increased as a result of photographing in large crowds of people, and I was influenced by the lovely people I interacted with on a daily basis. It was definitely worthwhile. - University of Colorado - Denver View Entire Review
