I had fun learning to draw at this class. I discovered that I may have a hidden talent. The teacher was encouraging, and the fun part was sharing our creativity with everyone in the class. I would definitely take this class again to improve my drawing skills.

Love this class—I have been attending this class about a year and will happily continue taking it. The instructor is very professional and informative. Participants in the class are very friendly - during the critic time we always inspire and learn so much from each other. And I especially enjoy the figurative drawing session

The Chelsea drawing & painting workshop is such a special respite in NYC! I was looking for a creative outlet as a form of stress relief from my corporate job, and the vibe was exactly what I needed. The classes are relaxed – you progress at-you-own-pace and skillset – and Raul is there to give guidance whenever you need. As someone with no prior experience with drawing, I love how nonchalant, non-judgmental, and quirky the atmosphere is. Raul is great at introducing students to each-other and cultivating conversation and cheer throughout the session and during breaktime. I ended up going consistently for 3 months, and I’m looking forward to picking it up again, when my schedule allows. Highly recommend giving the studio a shot.

Raul is very knowledgeable, supportive, & inspired teacher. He makes you feel comfortable and understands your needs, no matter what is your level in art. His suggestions is always helpful. Raul is friendly, fun to be around, hight educated in many fields. During the break he involves students in discussions about art, music, science, and many more. After classes you improve your painting/ drawing skills, meet nice people and feel happy being in relax environment. I highly recommend this workshop. Look forward to come back.

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.

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!

We always have very nice conversations which creates an even more comfortable atmosphere. I can’t wait to go there again.

I just attend my first class with Raphael last Friday. Having no past art experience, he has a way of making you feel comfortable, open and able to get through this class. He perfectly timed a break when I found myself getting frustrated and offered tips and demonstrations the whole 3 hours to each one of his students. By his demeanor and passion you can tell that teaching others is not only something he loves to do but something he was meant to do. 3 hours with him will open up a side of yourself you didn't know was there. Highly recommend this class if you're thinking of exploring a new side of yourself.

It was really fulfilling to explore my creative side again. Rafael did a wonderful job at guiding me, explaining techniques and being encouraging. I had already enrolled of his 2 classes, and am glad that I will have the opportunity to continue my artwork with him two weekends in a row. Everyone there was friendly and personable. A lovely lady from Australia even brought in some homemade baklava. I would highly recommend anyone to take this class. Great atmosphere and a fun time. Thanks Rafael.

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.

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.

Absolutely fantastic time....I went with a friend who had more experience with drawing and we both found the session quite worthwhile and will return regularly. At first we were told to select/arrange a still life set up and then handed charcoal and told to proceed. Work so well since Raphael was able to see what each of us was capable of and what type of eye we had. We each had run off the top page with our drawing so he showed us about “mapping” points to show quickly the positions of each object in the still life to prevent running off the page. During the three hours, we went on to rearrange the still life and then to use values. Great time.

The artist Raphael-Raul was terrific. Not all artists can be fine teachers but he certainly is. First thing after greetings was for each of us to set up a still life and using charcoal paint it. He did this to see where we each were.Wonderful approach. His observations and suggestions were so informative and helpful. His explanations connected to the whole realm of art history. The three hours passed quickly and he was always right there if someone had a question and he would be wandering around giving encouragement.

English below! Disfruté muchísimo esta clase y se la recomiendo a cualquier persona con cualquier nivel de experiencia, que quisiera conectarse de nuevo con su espíritu artístico. Raphael es un instructor maravilloso que comunica muy bien con todxs sus estudiantes - ¡y en cuatro idiomas! Sus consejos a mí me ayudaron mucho, no solamente sus sugerencias artísticas, sino también sus reflexiones personales y filosóficas. Dentro de pocas horas, aprendí varias técnicas muy útiles del dibujo y además conoci a un grupo de personas muy amables a quienes también les interesaba explorar sus lados creativos. Les recomiendo mucho estas clases, ¡disfruten! I highly enjoyed this class and would recommend it to anyone of any level of experience who wants to reconnect with their artistic spirit. Raphael is a fantastic instructor who communicates wonderfully with all the students, and in four different languages! I found his advice to be very helpful, not just his artistic suggestions, but also his philosophical and personal reflections. In a few hours, I learned a lot of great drawing techniques and met a lovely crowd of folks who were also interested in exploring their creative sides. I highly recommend these classes, enjoy!

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.

This is THE BEST art class I have ever attended. Not just because Raphael is an excellent teacher, but because he creates an environment in his workshop that fosters a sense of calm that is difficult to find in New York City. My experience in my first workshop has led me to come back again and again to continue developing my creative skills. I have even invested in my own supplies and begun working on a series of my own pieces. I am working towards submitting my work to be exhibited under the careful instruction of Raphael. I was also moved to write a blog about the experience, which you can read here: https://victoriaeatsworld.com/2018/03/13/the-chelsea-drawing-painting-workshop/

I have thoroughly enjoyed attending Raphael’s classes on a professional and personal level. Raphael is an extremely talented artist in his own right and I have thoroughly appreciated being mentored by him in the development of my own pieces. The atmosphere of the studio is warm and open but still very professional. Raphael has imparted much of his wisdom both in terms of technical artistic skills and historical art movements and events. The studio is an inspiring place to work - full of art and sculptures and flooded with light. For an authentic artistic experience drawing and painting with a true NYC artist I thoroughly recommend attending

The instructor opens his apartment to students and walks you through the starting process: from choosing objects to draw, to specially setting objects on paper, then setting tone color. If time permits student can transfer set up picture to larger drawing canvas. Its a good starting point to begin to draw or refresh on skills.

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.

This was a great small class with lots of personal attention, which was really helpful for myself as a beginner. Without having much experience at all, I came away with a charcoal drawing that may very well be the first piece for my portfolio! Will definitely be attending again in the future.

Raul gave me a lot of freedom in deciding what to draw. He also had good inputs which helped improve my drawing. Overall it was a good experience.
