Ilya Mirochnik, Bridgeview Alumnus.

Ilya Mirochnik began his studies at the Bridgeview School in 2001 and continued through 2005. His instructors were Polina Osnachuk, Felix Sherman, Samuel Kudish, Dimitry Gerrman, and Vitaly Patrov.

In the summer of 2005, he participated in a Bridgeview Master Class organized at the Repin Academy of Fine Arts in Russia. Ilya's studies at Bridgeview and his visit to Russia made him decide to enter the Repin Academy for a 6 year BFA/MFA program.

Currently Ilya is in his forth year at the Repin Academy where he joined the studio of Professor Blokhin.

Congratulations to you, Ilya! Bridgeview is very proud of your accomplishments.
