School of Fine Arts in New York was founded by classically-trained
artists from Eastern Europe and Russia in 2000,
so we've been in business since 2001.
The school teaches Drawing,
Painting & Composition to adults and
children. Also offering classes in art portfolio
preparation for high school and college.
Bridgeview approach is
based on the centuries-old techniques developed by
generations of European masters. These techniques were
painstakingly preserved in Russia through the 20th
century while they were much forgotten in the west.
Bridgeview instructors are now passing it on to new
generations, and the results are impressive. Our students
win prestigious awards, get accepted with generous
scholarships to specialized art high schools and
colleges, some even sell their work at an early age.
While there are many classical art
