Antonelli Art School helps guide you in building an artistic portfolio to catalog your drawing development over time and to showcase your best works.
You'll begin with a guidance call with Jessica Antonelli to assess where to embark on your drawing journey and which portfolio pathway will best suit your goals.
Types of Portfolios:
Development Portfolio- Provide evidence of progress in applying the elements and principles of art, and your stylistic evolution over time.
Showcase Portfolio- Provide evidence of mastery in foundational drawing mediums and subjects, such as landscape, portrait, still-life, and abstraction.
Project Portfolio- Showcase the art investigations and projects that you are most passionate about. Document the impact of your projects on you and/or a larger stage.
You'll meet your new artsy friends on our community homepage, where you can post, comment, and interact with your fellow students. This is the best part of the journey! We keep each other motivated and cheer each other's progress.
With live calls and interactive feedback, our community is the next best thing to being in class in person.
Get access to video interviews with artistic thought leaders such as Betty Edwards, author of the world's #1 drawing instructional book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.
Get inspired by video interviews, art lessons and demonstrations, and guest teachers who visit our platform to share their gifts and artistic wisdom with our community.
2x Monthly Zoom Calls
2nd & 3rd Tuesday Evenings, 6:30-8:00 Central.
These Zoom classes offer time to workshop skills, critique drawings and paintings students are developing for their portfolios. We tend to meet more often- usually every Tuesday, but hours differ in winter. Classes are customized to the needs of the students who attend.
There are untold benefits to exercising your vision and creativity by learning to draw and making art a part of your life.
However, like anything worth doing, the process can bring up a lot of resistance.
The most common story is that we want to learn a quick trick or two and then have a "perfect" drawing to show off to friends. But like music and dancing, it's the DOING of it that's important, not rushing to get to the end. The process of curiosity, discovery, frustration, breakthrough, and triumph play on loop as we continue to improve and spiral our skillset upward.
Mastering this creative process will show up in other areas of your life as well. When we learn to innovate, work through resistance, and problem-solve in art, we get better at doing those things in other areas of our life as well.
Once you're in, Antonelli Art School is $39.99 a month. That's just under $10 bucks a week. This smoking hot price is bound to go up in 2023, so consider joining today for the best price.

How many months does it take to learn to draw?
Antonelli Art School centers around creating portfolios showcasing your mastery of drawing fundamentals, best works, and a project investigating your artistic interests. This process can take anywhere from 3 months to a year, depending on the amount of time it takes you to create the artwork for the portfolio.
