Rebel Art Crew


Alexandra Harrison

Welcome to Rebel Art School! I'm Alex, the owner and creative driving force behind Rebel. I received my BFA in Studio Arts from San Diego State, and after nearly a decade of teaching art and freelancing I decided it was time to create a space to invite others to share in my passion for art. The idea for Rebel Art School was born, and with the love and support of our community I opened the doors on November 1st, 2016. 

Creating and fostering art is sacred to me, and being able to instill the idea that there is no right or wrong way to make art is priceless. We all need ways to express ourselves, and whether that be through dancing, writing, climbing mountains, taking photos, painting, etc. we need to find those outlets. I could not be more thankful to be able to provide a safe place for people of all ages to come explore and express, and to foster creative thinking. I look forward to inviting you into the studio!

Hi there! So honored to be part of Rebel Art School and to meet all our aspiring creators and makers that enter the studio here. I grew up in Santa Cruz California where my love for outdoor adventures, long walks by the ocean and in the forest, with hours painting under the sun came to be.

I found myself in a art studio just like Rebel Art School when I was eight years old and have been creating ever since. I received an education at UC Berkeley with a BFA in Art Practice in 2018. I’m in support of learning the traditional forms of art making but also finding the freedom in bending the rules and taking risks! I love being able to teach and learn from others, adding and enriching my own practice as an visual artist. Hope to see you in the studio!

Hello! I am so happy to join Rebel Art School and be a part of the students’ experience here!I grew up in Sweden and received my sculpture training in Italy at the FlorenceAcademy of Art. It was in Florence as a drawing instructor that I found my love for teaching. From a young age, I have been creating with everything around me: paper, clay, fabric and paint. It’s a joy to see the students experiment with and experience many different mediums. I am passionate about teaching and learning, both in and out of the classroom and I love seeing students thrive and grow. I feel lucky to share my love of art with the students here at Rebel Art School!
