An Around the World Art Adventure

Draw your way to Adventure

See the world through the eyes of an artist

People say drawing is something you have to be born with, a talent only born to master who seem to know what to do as soon as they pick up a pencil. But that's only because schools don't teach the real tricks of the trade, the steps and strategies artists use to SEE (the true trick of learning to draw). 

If you've ever been embarrassed about your drawings...

Studies have shown that more than half of Americans had a shaming experience around art and creativity.  Learning to draw can be HARD! Your teacher Jessica will help you through the most frustrating parts of learning how to draw both in our video lessons and through direct feedback on each of your drawing assignments. You CAN do it!

Fill in the gaps in your art education

 All too often, art programs just put a subject in front of you and expect you to draw. And if you didn't go to art school, your last chance to create might not have been since 3rd grade! No wonder you feel like you can't draw, you haven't taken an art class since you were 10! Just like math, drawing can be learned. There are formulas, and rules waiting to be broken. The 10 Steps are designed to keep you in an upward spiral of creative skill building.

Why learn how to draw with any other eCourse when you can travel the world?

You could try to cobble together your skill set with random Youtube videos and no planned sequence. However, the biggest challenges most new drawers face are 1) not not knowing what they need to know and 2) their mental game (i.e. artistic angst and the brutally judgey voice in your head). Not only do we conquer your inner art critic together, but we also do it while drawing engaging scenes from Italy, Mexico, and more. All for less than the price of a plane ticket.

About your Teacher

Jessica Antonelli specializes in breakthroughs for people who think they can't draw. Born on the quirky island of Galveston, Texas, she graduated with an art degree and a Masters in Teaching from Austin College. She's taught art at all age levels, from 4 year olds to the retired-and-inspired, and has gleaned a lot about how we human beings learn and approach making art. 

“An artist is an explorer" -Henri Matisse

"Learn the rules like a pro so you can break                                           them like an artist."  -Pablo Picasso   

Born into a family of travel agents, Jessica fell in love                                       with a charming colonial town in Mexico, and moved there                             to escape the test-obsessed public school system. She                               plans to share her travel drawing adventures online when not                     in her historic San Miguel de Allende Studio, where she teaches, paints,     and directs the studio gallery space.

What People are Saying...

Marc Stevens ( Web Design Media )

Biggest challenge before working with Jessica:

Overcoming my fear that I'm not creative.

“Jessica made me feel successful from the very first exercise. She made me enjoy drawing. She is a wonderful teacher able to break down the skills needed into manageable easy pieces.”

Sheila McFarland

"My 'oops' are really signaling a new level of growth"

"Before, when I did my art work I know something was wrong, but I didn't know how to fix it. Jessica has taught me many ways of seeing and interpreting what I am looking at so that my rendering is authentic. AND not to give up but to try again--perhaps with a different medium. Jessica is a great teacher filled with joy and the love of teaching. What fun it has been!"

Rajala Kuehmichel

"I've gotten past the negative stuff-I think I'm hooked"

“For me, learning to draw has always been difficult, mostly due to the negative emotional criticism in my own head. My class with Jessica has been so nurturing and supportive and has provided me a safe environment to make mistakes and actually improve my drawing. In just 2 months I can say I’ve gotten past the negative stuff and am enjoying the process of learning to draw—I think I’m hooked. Jessica’s class has been fun and her instruction is effective and I plan to attend her classes in the future!"
