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.
Excellent teacher! He teaches with his soul and also he offers a wide variety of different techniques. I really enjoy it!!! Excelente profesor!! Enseña con el alma, así como también ofrece una gran variedad de técnicas. También fomenta la creatividad y el desarrollo artístico de los alumnos. Fue un placer!
Rafa is a very compassionate teacher who caters to every student’s individual techniques. He is truly a delight
The class was perfect. I learned basic principles that allowed me to get started right away. He provided helpful, constructive feedback and I feel encouraged and eager to return and take more classes.
I enjoyed this class entirely. The instructor was very methodical, patient , motivational & knowledgeable. I recommend this class to anyone interested in art. Great class.
Very encouraging and supportive teacher. Feedback and instruction was helpful. I hope to go back though I wish there was a weekend option!
While the instructor was clearly knowledgeable, and a good artist, the class was a little too ambitious, moving from the basics of drawing to pastels in three hours. The drawing instruction basically boiled down to make guidance marks, then draw... I wanted more help with the basics of drawing.
Had a lot of fun. Produced art work that I liked. Delivered what it said it would deliver.
Very art immersion and an inspiring experience. We could learn how to be more creative and express our creative spirits during the classes. Definitely recommend it and hope to back again.
He paints with his heart and teaches you to do the same. Loved every minute of it
