So you’ve got the Winter Study coming up. What to take, who to take it with?

Hey, ART 25 looks good:
Julia Morgan-Leamon

ARTS 25 Drawing and Painting in Egypt  Julia Morgan-Leamon
Students will explore ancient Egypt through guided tours of the East and West Bank temples and tomb paintings; they will experience contemporary Egypt through cross-cultural dialogue with the Egyptian students and other local artists. Along with completing art assignments and participating on tours, students will document their experiences visually and in writing in sketchbook form.

And, indeed, they did!
