Portfolio and Auditions Preparation for Specialized High Schools (LaGuardia, Sinatra, Art and Design)

For students in seventh and eighth grades who plan to apply to specialized art high schools, we provide a special portfolio preparation class. Drawing, painting and design assignments will also prepare students for auditions to these high schools. Bridgeview School has a successful track record with portfolio preparation. Almost all of our students who have been with us for a considerable amount of time get accepted to at least one of the specialized schools (LaGuardia, Frank Sinatra and Art and Design).

Special Note! We have been doing LaGuardia prep for 13 years now. In fact one of our alumni and LaGuardia graduates Iliya Mirochnik is now a member of our outstanding faculty. Getting into LaGuardia and Frank Sinatra is becoming increasingly harder due to growing compeitition. Your child's academic grades is the number one criteria. Second is the audition and third is portfolio. We can't help you with the academics, but we can help with the audition prep and portfolio, given that you allow ample time to prepare - at least 3 semesters (9 months). The audition is more important than the portfolio (higher score), because it shows how well and how fast your kid can think visually on his own without any outside help.

Bridgeview Success Stories

Minimum age is 13.

This class is ideal for students (teens and adults) who already have some experience in visual arts. The class is not necessarily only for those who need a portfolio, but for any teen who has a deeper interest in visual arts and is looking for a somewhat more advanced class.

The Saturday class will focus more on drawing. Beginner students will work from still life setups whereas advanced students will work from live models (portrait, self-portrait and figure). Media may include pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor. Each class will include a short art history lecture. Please note, that semi-nude models are used in this class.

The Sunday class will focus more on painting techniques in oils, watercolors or other media of your choice. Students will work from still life and move towards the human form (portrait, self-portrait, figure).

Time permitting, visits to studios of practicing artists and field trips to Museums and galleries will also be arranged in addition to working in class.

As an additional benefit for students, Bridgeview invites college admissions councilors who talk about their colleges and also review students' portfolios.
