    St. Mark's Spring2013

    The simple change of space had the greatest impact on my work in Venice. The floor, the curtains over the walls, the shape of the space, and the giant pole in the middle of the room were aspects that I wasn’t used to from working in the teatrino. I learned that my comfort with the space has...

    Gabrielle, Grace, Sophie, Allie and Morgan at the Ponte Vecchio in Firenze.

    Though there have been a lot of fantastic things about studying abroad, one of the things I think I will miss the most about this experience is the incredible and supportive community that exists here at the ADA. From the very first open mike night back in September, it was so cool to see...

    Mai Ai Training

      The notion of straining the entirety of my academic experience at the Accademia down to a mere blog post is not one that I’d care to entertain.

It’s so much fun to see what people come up with...

Back at school I might slog twenty minutes to a big...
