University of Arizona dancer Danielle Sheather recently returned from a 30-day trip abroad, where she studied and performed in Paris.
Sheather writes that it took three plane rides and a 5,289-mile journey from Heathrow to return to Tucson for the fall. Having spend the summer in Europe, where she was involved in intensive training and performance, while also making time for touring, Sheather is now completing her final year of graduate school as an Master of Fine Arts candidate.

At the School of Art, students have access to a sizable printmaking facility where they are able to produce lithography, relief and intaglio works. It is part of the University of Arizona's effort to train students in classical artistic works at a time when students also are helping to drive the re-emerging popularity of printmaking.
