Tess - 2017

I decided to participate in the Rome Architectural Sketchbook program because I wanted to meet new people and learn skills that I wouldn't necessarily acquire during my degree in Brisbane. And, of course, it's in Rome! One of the most incredible places to learn about art and architecture. I have learnt more about art and architecture from passionate teachers than ever before. I had the opportunity to travel on the weekends including visiting the beautiful islands of Venice.
