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.
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.
I love this art class. It is fun and very relaxing to draw. Location is next to the subway station. Our art teacher is very professional and easy to communicate. He speaks English and Spanish.
The teacher wasexcellent
Found the class, Art Workshop more in-depth and informative than expected. Rafael, the teacher infused the class with calm, comfort, education and the freedom to draw at our individual level.
This class was great! Beginners along with more experienced artists will enjoy themselves. The teacher is knowledgeable and teaches at a good pace, giving both group and one on one advice throughout the class as we draw. He provides materials and even a little mid-class snack, which is very nice! Going back!
Absolutely loved the class! A mix of a little bit of theory with a lot of practice, in a friendly and relaxed environment. Raphaél is a skilled teacher and artist, and was available to provide feed back when I needed it.
Estoy súper satisfecha con lo que logrado aprender con el maestro Rafael-Raul, quien es un experto en las artes plásticas. Su forma de explicar a los estudiantes es bien practica y profesional. Me gusta como se enfoca en la necesidad de sus estudiantes sin importar el nivel de cada quien. Me ha inspirado mucho a seguir mejorando mi trabajo cada vez más. Comencé a tomar esta clase los Miércoles y luego cambié para los Jueves por conveniencia de mi propio horario, pero me encantaría poder asistir a todas sus clases para dedicarle más tiempo a las parte que deseo reforzar. Su estudio de trabajo es un lugar inspirador y acogedor por todo el arte que lo rodea y por el trato personalizado que cada quien recibe.
I am completely new to drawing and art, and this was the perfect class for me! Raphael-Raul was really encouraging throughout, and helped me figure out my own personal form of expression. Going back next week! Highly recommend for anyone looking to de-stress or looking to be creative.
I had a really nice afternoon drawing and Rafael was super nice. He was a good instructor and really helped me. I am going back for sure!
