Where: Beautiful Long Island City
Gantry Park Waterfront
Students will be painting for 1 or 2 days outdoors in Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City right near the school. The location provides scenic views of the East River, Manhattan Skyline, Queensboro Bridge and Roosevelt Island and lends itself to compositional motifs of various difficulties. And now with FALL COLORS. Emphasis will be placed on developing the general color and value relationships in small oil sketches on paper and canvas. This workshop is also highly recommended for HS and College Portfolio students since it will help them develop a highly relevant piece from observation to add variety for their portfolio.

At Bridgeview we welcome our new faculty members Alisa Minyukova and Iliya Mirochnik!
Bridgeview School of Fine Arts in New York was founded by classically-trained artists from Eastern Europe and Russia in 2000, so we've been in business for 13 years.
The school teaches Drawing, Painting & Composition to adults and children. Also offering classes in art portfolio preparation for high school and college.
Bridgeview approach is based on the centuries-old techniques developed by generations of European masters. These techniques were painstakingly preserved in Russia through the 20th century while they were much forgotten in the west. Our instructors who have received this unique training are now passing it on to new generations, and the results are impressive. Our students win prestigious awards, get accepted with generous scholarships to specialized art high schools and colleges, some even sell their work at an early age. And those who want to pursue art as a hobby also make great progress.
While there are many classical art schools today, Bridgeview approach is different. To better understand our approach we recommend visiting these pages
