Students bring back experience in art, life after studying abroad

A group of art students studied abroad in Florence, Italy over the summer, and brought back experience in both art and life. The students were tasked with creating a photo gallery while in Italy, to showcase at the university art gallery when they returned. One student, Carimar Vargas, found it difficult to decide on a subject matter at first but said she’s always been fascinated by the human form. This drew her to capturing photographs of statues while abroad. Students also created booklets filled with their photography and drawings, on paper crafted in Florence. The students showcased their work at the Arlington Museum of Art as well.
