Examples of Recent Student Work. 2013-14

Bridgeview 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 for 13 years.

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. Our instructors who have received this unique training 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. And those who want to pursue art as a hobby also make great progress.

Bridgeview School is conveniently located in New York City. We are in Long Island City (Queens), one subway stop from Manhattan by E,V,7 trains and G from Brooklyn. We are two blocks away from the most spectacular waterflont overlooking Manhattan. Our peaceful and beautiful neighborhood is called Hunter's Point.

Small Groups. Lots of individual attention. Friendly Atmosphere. Our teachers truly care about you. Regardless of your level, they will give you the most amount of individual attention.

Low fees. $12 - 17 hours per hour. For kids' classes all professional-grade materials are included.

No prior experience necessary, Absolute Beginners welcome.

While there are many classical art schools today, Bridgeview approach is different. To better understand our approach we recommend visiting these pages
