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.
Fantastic class. Raul is a remarkable teacher. He shows you basic skills that will make you produce something far better than you thought you could, even in the first class. He’s knowledgeable and inspiring.
I hadn't drawn seriously at all in my life previously to taking Raphael's class but he does an incredibly neat job laying out the foundations and highlighting a student's innate strong point (we all have a style that we innately prefer to draw in). He's good at guiding each student in terms of developing their styles and preferences, as well as suggesting new techniques to expand on the student's craft. I feel he's not just a great teacher but a mentor as well. Very pleased to have taken classes by Raphael.
I gifted this class for my boyfriend who has more experience than me and we both were able to learn new skills and theory about art and painting. Raphaél is a great instructor and it’s fun to see the different levels of students in the class and what they have accomplished.
I'm a true beginner and I thought this was a wonderful, welcoming experience.
I gifted this class to my boyfriend for his birthday and we had a wonderful time. The class was very focused and Raphael-Raul was a very helpful teacher and gave constructive advice as we moved through the class. As a novice drawer, I was not intimidated at all and plan on attending the workshop monthly!
This class is a good mix of casual and instructional. The teacher is highly knowledgable and genuinely interested in the students. It’s a great atmosphere with cool people.
Awesome class with a great instructor! It was a very comfortable environment with a mixed group of people. I will definitely be back to continue my art education and keep meeting interesting people.
I had a great experience. The artist was knowledgeable and made the workshop interesting. He also encouraged creativity. It helped me to re-engage with art. Thank you for that.
Raffaele is a fantastic teacher. We were both beginner artists and felt very well guided in the course.
I haven't done any art work since I was a kid. This class what outstanding! The instructor was able to meet me at my level and I felt confident and accepted in such a nurturing environment. Great way to meditate after a long day after work.
