Lara Jordan - Laguardia High School.
Student of Boris Kulikov.
Our program is based on the time-tested methods developed by the Russian schools for artistically gifted children, and adapted for special needs of American schools and colleges. Students accomplish a series of assignments in a specific progression, from easier to more complex ones. The general progression is from still life to portrait to dressed figure. Design-oriented and creative assignments are also part of the program.
Students gain mastery of different media including acrylic paints, water-colors, pencil, charcoal and pastels, and even clay for the younger kids.
Bridgeview School is different. Our atmosphere is informal, but serious. While we make sure that the assignments are interesting to the children, they also teach them specific lessons, whether it is proportions or perspective or color theory.
We also help with portfolio preparation for high schools and college. Most Bridgeview students successfully pass auditions to LaGuardia, Bayside, Frank Sinatra and Art and Design High Schools. Bridgeview students received generous college scholarships based on merit.
