In business since 2001, Bridgeview teaches centuries-old techniques developed by generations of European masters. Bridgeview instructors are now passing them on to new generations, and the results are impressive. Our students win prestigious awards, get accepted with generous scholarships to colleges, some become professional artists, exhibiting in galleries and selling their work. Bridgeview means real art in an inspiring and friendly environment. We practice individualized one on one approach in a group setting. Group size is limited to 12. Complete beginners are welcome.
Withdrawal Policy. Students are allowed to withdraw one week before the first day of the semester, in which case tuition is reimbursed minus a $25 cancellation fee. After that no withdrawals are allowed.
Tuition payment. Tution is due in full before the beginning of class.
Missed classes. Students can not transfer any tuition for missed classes to another semester or receive refund for missed classes. However, provided that space is available in another class, they can use it as a make-up for a missed class during the same term that they are registered for.
For example, if you are registered in a Monday evening class and miss it, you can arrange for a makeup by going to a Thursday or Tuesday or Saturday class provided that the other class is not completely full. Since we work with students on an individual basis, another teacher can give you a different assignment that is appropriate to you specifically regardless of what the rest of the class might be working on. Such makeups have to be arranged by email with the school's administration.
Storage. Students are allowed to store their work in progress only at the school. Very limited materials storage inside of specially designated shelf may also be available on first come first serve basis. All work and materials have to be removed once the semester is over. If not removed, they will be disposed of. Odorless Gamsol is the only solvent that is allowed at Bridgeview.
