The Next Generation of Art

Dear Friends,

My name is Yeleezaveta and I am an artist.  I am raising money for my first year at the Florence Classical Arts Academy in Florence, Italy.


WHY SUPPORT A YOUNG ARTIST?
Since the patronage of the Medici family over 500 years ago towards Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, and Raphael (the artists, not the ninja turtles,) the success of artists has been heavily dependent on the sponsorship of patrons like you. Your support will allow me to become the best artist I can be.

WHAT IS THE MONEY FOR?
I am enrolled in the Florence Classical Arts Academy for the 2019-2020 school year. FCAA trains young people from all over the world through their unique method of applied knowledge to become professional artists that can paint and draw both from models and from imagination.

At FCAA I will receive:
Instruction in Drawing, Artistic Anatomy, Painting and Composition.
Housing at the school
Extended  Studio hours by living at the school.

Tuition for the school is $14,400 and housing is $6,660 per year.  All money raised will go directly towards these costs.

32 inches, painted wood.
For a gift of $11,000 or more, you will receive a beautifully executed sculpture of a Nootka warrior.  My father and I will personally deliver the sculpture anywhere in the United States (we need to be able to fly there or drive there). My father can give a lecture on his creative process and about the Nootka people to you and a group of friends. See more pictures here 



WHAT YOUR SUPPORT MEANS TO ME.
 Your support means much more than the money you are generously donating.  Not only does it allow me to pursue my passion, but it drives me to be the best artist that I can be.

Thank You!
