It is a rainy day as I write this blog post. Both literally and figuratively, by the time you read this I will have left Italy and be back in the USA. Don’t get me wrong; I love our country! My time abroad has been an experience that I will never forget. To the people that I met in my travels and that have taken care of me and made me feel special when I walked into their shops, THANK YOU! To the Professors in Italy that helped me get closer to my work and find more about myself than some of my art, I will forever be grateful! To the friends I made that I shared this great adventure with, I hope we can continue our adventures in the future! Oh and Chianti, love you! Ok. I’m done with sad going-to-miss-Italy rant.
I had a great adventure on this past Thursday, which is normally my Baroque Art History Day. But our Professor told my friend and me (Kristen from Marywood) that we could just turn in our paper on Wednesday and to go have an adventure on Thursday. Well we went to Elba Island and we had quite the time there, we met some really interesting people. Elba Island is quite big so walking it was not going to be easy; luckily we found this scooter rental place and commenced to get lost all over this island. The beaches there are like none I have ever seen before. The water was the clearest I have ever seen! Thanks for the memories!
SACI Class Update
Black & White Photography
Final Critique DONE! Maybe when I get back I can scan some of the images.
Color Documentary Photography
All done. The professor invited me and my two friends to his house for food, wine, and a photography critique!
Had my gallery showing and it turned out great. Funny note, my friends that knew me could tell which video was mine just by the noise. “I heard the most annoying sound, and instantly knew it was Ty’s video” they said. Busted!
We finished our documentary, when it gets posted on YouTube I will add a link.
All finished, went to another museum on Tuesday. This is a great way to learn about art, no substitute for seeing art in person!
