Ok, so the scenery in the area of Ireland we’ll be living/learning in while abroad may be just a bit more impressive than the scenery in Lexington. One particularly beautiful and well-known area is the Cliffs of Moher (yep, same ones that were in The Princess Bride and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince). All of this natural beauty should make for some great inspiration for our writing.
For the majority of our time in Ireland, we’ll be staying at the Burren College of Art, a school Transylvania has been partnering with for several years now for May Term courses. Professors Jack Girard and Martha Gehringer co-taught the course “Drawing on Ireland” at the BCA in May 2015. We’d encourage you to find students on campus who took the course and talk to about their experiences.
