My name is Claire Renn and I am just starting to blog for my AIFS study abroad program. I am going to Rome, Italy this summer from June till July and could not be more excited. I chose Rome because I am an art history major and my favorite periods of art are from Ancient Rome to Ancient Greece. Having the opportunity to go study there for a month is absolutely amazing. It almost seems like a dream.
Along with ancient Rome, I am an avid lover of Renaissance art. Italy was the holy ground in which the Renaissance blossomed. I will be taking an art history course on the Renaissance and Baroque art. Talk about learning from where it all came from! I get to take in all the sites and beautiful art work that I have only seen on a slide show. If that isn’t the coolest thing ever then I do not know what is.
As an art history major, I cannot wait to meet the rest of you who share my passion. I hope to learn about Rome and it’s art and I hope to learn about things that will catch my interest and develop further. I really can’t wait to start my journey this summer and expand my knowledge for the area of study I love the most in this world. I hope everyone else is excited and for those who are going to Rome this summer I can’t wait to meet you!
