Maryland Institute College of Art (Ceramics - Drawing)
Alfred University (Master's)
Hello New York City, it is a genuine pleasure to introduce myself; I am Rafael C. It is wonderful to dedicate one’s life to the arts and for me it will be an honor and a responsibility to be your art tutor.
I earned a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2012 and an MFA from The New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2015. Since 2008, I have been art instructor in drawing and painting for diverse populations and people of different ages in community centers and at a college level. In my drawing and painting classes the students first understand the principles art to then visualize its multiple conceptual and technical possibilities. The students will make creative experimentations of materials with a rational and intuitive approach, as well as, a critical evaluation of an artwork through formal critiques and personal analysis of their own endeavors. All my students should expect to make use of their non-dominant hand, drawing with both hands at same time, and the use of their feet. Large scale drawing will also be an emphasis to create a relaxed and confident artistic expression.
With the thesis “Creative Consciousness - The Art of Allowance” the primary focus of my teaching practice is on the awakening the creative and intuitive mind understanding it implications in the world. Art is a channel where one can talk to, inspire action, and be in service to humanity; by living, expressing, and sharing the adventure of conscious creation. I am bilingual English and Spanish and I am happy to inspire, grow with the community, and be a valuable resource for my students. With the love, hope, and sincerity I will be pleased to start working with all of you. Hello New York City, it is a genuine pleasure to introduce myself; I am Rafael C.
