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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

Review Summary by CourseHorse

Students appreciated the supportive and encouraging teaching style highlighted in the Zoomed: Art Workshop with teachers Raphael and Raul who catered to all artistic levels from beginner to experienced. They praised the fostering of an inclusive and encouraging environment where everyone was free to share their artwork, offering inspiration and learning from one another, especially during the critique times. Among the skills cultivated in the workshops, students learned various drawing skills, and pastel mastery, along with composition, grayscale, perspective, and proportion techniques, allowing them to create numerous pieces of art. These classes also induced personal enhancement by revealing artistic talents participants hadn't known were within them, re-engaging with art, and expanding creativity. Moreover, it was mentioned the importance of having a helping hand in the development of the students' preferred styles, suggesting new techniques to expand on their craft. Several students had so much fun and learned so much that they wanted to turn the workshops into a regular activity. Direct quotes: 1. "I discovered that I may have a hidden talent... I would take this class again to improve my drawing skills." 2. "I learned skills, techniques, and methods of creativity in his class. Everyone in his class works on their piece at their own pace." 3. "Raphael taught me how to draw with pastels and I have been mastering it until now. 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 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.
