​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.

Attended: Art Workshop (Wednesdays)

Such a great class to learn all different types of techniques and practice what you’ve learned. This is such a gem! Will definitely return!


Attended: Art Workshop (Friday Evening)

My husband and I always look forward to our Friday night lessons with Raphael. He is an excellent teacher and with his guidance we have produced artwork we never thought we could do. We highly recommend him especially for a fun, relaxing experience.


Attended: Art Workshop (Wednesdays)

I really enjoyed this class! Raphael is very encouraging and creates a lovely atmosphere where everyone is working at their own pace in a relaxed environment. It was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to start and practice their art. I learnt a lot and will definitely be going back!


Attended: Art Workshop (Friday Evening)

So nice to be in such a lively, informal, artistic environment! As a small group where everyone works very independently - and the students have such varied experience levels - there is a very personal level of couching. Raphael is clearly very passionate about instilling artistic foundations and appreciation in his students, and I love that you can show up on the weeks that work for you instead of committing to a larger timeframe.

Attended: Art Workshop (Thursdays)

This is exactly how I wish to learn all subjects in life. At first, it was just draw to see our skills. And from there, Critique and guidance. And then a second go at it with help. And dramatic difference. Amazing class! Will be coming Back multiple times with my friend! Highly Recommended
