The New Renaissance Foundation – Aims and Objectives
The New Renaissance Art foundation offers a traditional academic course of classical art with the opportunity to study skills, techniques, working habits and analytical tools of drawing and painting to provide the essential components of a classical art education.
The New Renaissance Foundation has been established to encourage philanthropic funding partnerships and donations of any size to help us to continue and expand our programme to provide financial bursaries to support applications from talented students to enable them to study at the Florence Classical Arts Academy.
Supporting Artists of the Future (Why this work is important)
The course provides personal tutorial support and practical guidance to help students to discover and fulfil their potential, create a comprehensive portfolio of art that reflects their individual personality and ability, to help launch into further study and training and embark on a future career in the visual arts.
We believe the traditional education at the Florence Classical Arts Academy is unparalleled by any similar course anywhere in Europe. The studios are located in central Florence, twenty minutes walk from the Duomo and the cultural and heritage of Tuscany.
Funding the Future - How much will it cost?
We are looking for funding of €10,000 to pay the fees of individual talented students.
€100,000 per will enable ten students to study at the Academy.
We are also looking for large and small partnerships to support the following projects.
