Jessica Antonelli is an award winning art teacher born on the island of Galveston, near Texas. She studied the fundamentals of drawing and painting in Florence, Italy while studying abroad. Jessica graduated with a major in Art and a Masters in Teaching from Austin College.
Her classes cultivate an attitude of fearless, fun exploration in drawing that leads to a soul-brightening artistic practice. Jessica is a people-lover with a passion for online learning. With this in mind, she’s on a mission to make her online courses as close to the experience of physically being in the art classroom as possible.
Jessica has taught art for a decade to ages across the spectrum. In 2014 Jessica moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and founded Studio Antonelli, where she’s been offering seasonal classes in drawing and painting for adult students ever since. Early in her Texas public school days, she taught art at every grade level, from high school seniors to 4-year olds, and still maintains her Texas teacher certification. In 2013 she was awarded Galveston Independent School District’s Teacher of the Year.
