Friday May 1st, 6pm - 9pm
Learn the Science, Craft, History, Philosophy and Metaphysics of Art
We are an art workshop inspired by the Renaissance workshops of the 15th century where apprenticing artists worked and shared ideas and techniques under the guidance of a professional master artist in his workshop-home. Also, we emphasize personal vision and the learning of the science and craft of art as essential for the expression of that personal vision.
The art classes are offered in the intimate home-studio of the artist in the heart of the Chelsea Art district of New York City.
Raphael is a knowledgeable and amazing art instructor. I learned skill, technique and methods of creativity in his class. Everyone in his class works on their own piece at their own pace. I would recommend this class to any artist or someone interested in art.
I have been taking art classes with Rafael since last year. Just after four months of the workshops My art was selected for Salmagundi exhibition. Rafael taught me how to draw with pastels and i have been mastering it until now. Rafael gives you very useful insights at every class and helps you to excel as a beginning artist. With his help I have already painted about 8 art pieces.
Raphael is simply the best. He's inspiring, fun, patient, kind, and so much more. My friend invited me to this class a few months ago, and I have been going every week (and bringing along other friends!). The class is warm and inviting, and Raphael makes you feel comfortable no matter what background in art you have. I highly recommend attending this class--I feel more creative and inspired than before. Thank you, Raphael for re-nurturing my love for art!
I have attended classes with Rafael for almost three years. I have enjoyed the learning experience immensely. I attended The Workshop as a complete novice but have since completed seventy paintings, two of them having been part of a show at the Salmagundi Gallery in Greenwich Village. I am eagerly awaiting the resumption of classes and seeing Rafael.
Raphael is an amazing teacher. His teaching methods make it a fun, delightful, social experience that brings out your creativity. Looking forward to the next class!!
Great class. Knowledgeable teacher.
This class has been a true gift. Rafaei is not only a talented and skilled artist but a generous and supportive teacher. He gives clear attention to the needs of his students but encourages us to find our way of expressing ourselves. He is both knowledgable and relaxed and an outstanding guide. I now go to class as often as I can and my confidence and skill are growing.
Great class in a cozy/ artistic studio in Chelsea. Not your usual commercial course. Very passionate teacher, pleasant music and interesting insights about famous artists their achievements and quotes. Highly recommend.
I learnt a lot and I am totally coming back.
I’ve participated three times in Raphael-Raul’s art class now and enjoy it every time. He takes time for each student and explains every step which eventually leads you to your final painting. We always have very nice conversations which creates an even more comfortable atmosphere. I can’t wait to go there again.
