|Dear parents! If you are
new to Bridgeview, please read the information below
before you decide to enroll your child.
Bridgeview is the only school of its kind in the US.
All of Bridgeview teachers were trained in Russia and Eastern Europe, where only those who showed exceptional talent at an early age were allowed to pursue professional art careers, just like in music or sports. As a result, they possess almost every skill imaginable, they are versatile in the visual language and are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to artistic styles, media or art history. These artists are world-known painters, sculptors, theater and costume designers and book illustrators. Many have work in museums. They are also exceptional educators because they are passionate about art and they love children.
After 16 years in business, we have reached a point where we can't and don't want to expand our programs in order to preserve our highly individualized approach to each and every student artistic development.
Currently we have almost 200 highly dedicated and committed students who spend time in our studio every week. On average, a Bridgeview students attends for 5 years, and some have been with us from age 7 to 17 until they go to college. And then they come again during college and after because they crave our warm and nurturing atmosphere. While at Bridgeview, they win awards, get accepted into specialized high schools (LaGuardia, Frank Sinatra and etc), get substantial college scholarships, but mainly fall in love with art and learn to understand it. You are welcome to google online and find genuine parents' and kids' reviews.
Bridgeview is like family, where every student is given a lot of individual attention based on his or her unique abilities (some are better with color, some with design, some with imagination and etc.)
Also, our pricing is extremely reasonable. Classes are full 2 or 3 hours in small groups of only 6-8 kids with professional grade materials in every medium imaginable provided by us for free with utmost generosity. Similar programs might cost twice as much with not nearly as impressive results.
Having said all that, and space permitting, we are happy to accept new students. We accept everyone who is eager to learn, regardless of their skills' level.
Considering our efforts to keep the school small, atmosphere personable and nurturing to those who are committed to learning, we have certain rules which you need to accept before you sign up.
