Welcome to MarcoBronzini.com
French artist, graduate of the Royal Academy of Arts, London
At age sixteen Marco Bronzini was introduced to British sculptor John Skeaping, and he went from provincial Beaucaire, his hometown in the South of France, to London, England, the art world center in the mid 1970's. He was accepted with a four year scholarship to the Royal Academy of Arts in London in 1975 and within the next few years he would meet people like the Astors and great art collectors like Paul Mellon.
Marco Bronzini Art School & Studio, which opened in 2001 in Naples, Florida, offers half and full day art classes from October through April. Please go to "ART CLASSES" tab for more information.
ABOUT TEACHING: Over the years I have encountered unskillful amateurs with slick formulas at the teaching helm. They lead their unfortunate followers into a great void that is as far removed from the world of fine art as it is possible to be. Although painting can be a relaxing pastime, it requires concentration and discipline. Above all a painting must be good. Like anything that is worthwhile, art in all its forms cannot be taught nor appreciated in "three easy steps", and unless one is sketching, a painting should be worked on over a period of days, not minutes.
MISSION STATEMENT: "Both as a painter and a teacher I seek, in brushstrokes, to distinguish not between the large and the small but between the trivial and the important. In the arts there is scarcely anything as reprehensible as bad painting and nothing so lofty and worth attaining as that which is good. Art, like life, is not a matter of snobbery but of taste."
