School Funds

From Philip Hedgecock

I'm raising funds to cover materials costs for studying at The Florence Academy Of Art.

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, our Winter Trimester at FAA was cut short and the Spring Trimester cancelled/postponed until October.

The knock on effect of this was that I would be unable to continue my studies as I wouldn't have the required finished work to apply for Scholarship over the Summer, nor be able to guarantee working to be able to raise enough funds to finance it all myself - being in lockdown in Italy paying rent.

It has now, however, been made possible for the School to reopen on Wednesday 1st of June for 2 weeks, to make up the time lost at the end of March before the lockdown. During this period I have the opportunity to complete more work, to be able to apply for Scholarship, and the chance of returning in October to continue studying is a possibility.

With that in mind I'm reaching out for any help that may be available to pay for material costs for the future. 

The Florence Academy Of Art is one of the foremost schools for studying the traditional principles of figurative art and since beginning the Drawing & Sculpture program in 2019 I have taken as much opportunity as the School and Florence has to offer, enrolling in Anatomy classes, the Ecorché course, Weekend Painting for Sculpture Student Classes as well as Marble Carving at Studio Della Statua in Florence.

If there was any way you may be able to help in some way it would be greatly appreciated and I'll do my best to win the Scholarship to be able to keep studying for the final year.

Thank you for your time and keep safe and well.
