Right now I am enrolled as a student at Kirkwood Community College. As of this point in college I am still finding a way to make art apart of my carrer. Art has been a large part of my life. I have thought about becoming an art teacher, but I'm still unsure. I feel that this trip will help me find a part of myself. And to help me choose where I want to go with my art. I have heard that Italy is a beautiful country with wonderful architecture and bountiful examples of exquisite pieces of art. However I haven't had a chance to study much about Italy. I would like to learn about some of the works of art that I have only seen in textbooks. I have never studied abroad nor have even left the country before. This trip would better me as a person and would help me grow professionally.
