Kids/Teen Classes

Adult Classes

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 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 schools today, Bridgeview approach is different. To better understand our teaching approach to both painting and drawing we recommend visiting these pages of artwork done in schools, from which our instructors have graduated.

Congratulations to Bridgeview students accepted into specialized art high schools in NYC! 2017 acceptances.
