Bridgeview School of Fine Arts

We are grounded in the classical tradition when it comes to art training. We want to keep the school small and focus on those who are serious about becoming better artists. We are launching a special intensive scholarship program for talented young artists. And of course, we are committed to bringing this wonderful classical training to children.

Bridgeview School of Fine Arts
Founded by classically-trained European and American artists, Bridgeview School of Fine Arts, New York, offers a unique program in traditional Drawing, Painting and Sculpture. In 2002, the Bridgeview School became accredited by the American Society of Classical Realism.
This program is based on the centuries-old techniques developed by generations of European masters. These techniques were painstakingly preserved at the Russian Academy of Fine Arts, which is the alma mater for most of the Bridgeview teachers. Almost everyone of them can trace his or her lineage directly to one of the greatest 19th century artists including French sculptors Rodin and Bourdelle, Swedish painter Zorn and Russian painters Repin, Surikov and Serov. For example, the teacher of Samuel Kudish was a student of Pier Bonnard. While artists in Western Europe and America were turning towards abstraction, the Russian academies, isolated by the Iron Curtain, adhered to the classical methods of art education. All Bridgeview teachers received the most rigorous academic training.
The school founders are contemporary artists, who live and work in America. Their academic training has helped them to find their own voice. Bridgeview founders do not consider realism as the only way of artistic expression. Rather, they think of it as the best environment for learning the conceptual and technical aspects of fine arts. Located in Long Island City (Queens), which is an emerging art center of New York and a new home to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA Queens), Bridgeview is in the midst of cultural renewal. Its other neighbors include PS 1 Contemporary Art Center, the Noguchi Museum, and the Sculpture Center, just to name a few. On the other hand, we are only one subway stop from Manhattan, the most vibrant art community in the world.
