What you'll learn in this beginner drawing class:

You may be interested in drawing and painting, as both an experienced artist ​or as some one just starting out on the artistic path.

If you are a beginner, the artist -instructor will start you off on the fundamentals of drawing by creating your own still-life of objects to draw. For intermediate and advanced emerging artists, we work with what you are interested in creating, so that you can develop your own vision and style.  Our workshops are suited to all levels of skill and our philosophy stresses "personal vision", as well as learning the science and craft of art.

  • Drawing materials will be provided on the first session: paper, charcoal pencils etc. 
  • If you wish to paint, please bring your materials: canvas, brushes, paints, mediums, etc.
  • After consultation with the student, a materials list will be provided to the student after the workshop.
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.

Please note:
Children ages 13 years of age to 16 yrs can attend, if an accompanying adult takes the class with the child.

Question from Anonymous
I like to draw as a beginner and paint sometimes too. I have a shoulder issue and can't use an easel. Is there a table to lean and draw on in the class setting.? Thanks! Marilyn
Answer from Lucy D. Verified Student
Hi Marilyn! All of the stations were set up as standing at easels, but it was a very informal setting so it may be worth emailing the instructor to ask if there are a small table and seat available instead? Hope it works out!
Answer from Raul S.
Marylin! Yes, there are tables and chairs to sit to draw and paint. You will be very comfortable in the intimate and friendly setting of the workshop. From Rebecca Studio & office manager of Chelsea Drawing & Painting Workshops.

Art Workshop (Friday Evening)
Reviewed by Aliona on 4/14/2020
Ce cours fut mon premier atelier, ou j’ai commencé mes premières peintures. Au début j’étais un peu stressé, et je doutais de mes capacitiés. Mais Raul est un des meilleurs instructeurs, il m’a mises à l’aise et a réussi à trouver le talent que j’avais en moi (et dont je n’avais même pas idée). Je suis parti pendant 2 ans à Toronto ou j’ai essayé plusieurs écoles d’Arts, mais ça n’avait rien à voir avec les enseignements de Raul qui reste le numéro 1. Cela fait 6 mois que je suis retourné à New York, et c’est avec plaisir que j’ai retrouvé l’atelier de Raul ou je peux créer, être confortable comme chez moi avec une ambiance artistique, conviviale et amicale. Je recommende fortement cette endroits pour les gens qui veulent apprendre à peindre, ou pour ceux qui veulent developper leur talents, ou tout simplement pour les gens qui veulent passer de bon moments artistiques.

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!

Reviewed by Burton Sulzer on 3/23/2020
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.
