Ms Luzzi Biography

Stephanie Luzzi grew up in Dutchess County, New York. She first learned to draw from her dad when she was very little and continued to learn from some wonderful teachers, both in and out of school. Ms. Luzzi holds a BS in Studio Art from SUNY New Paltz and an MS in Art and Design Education from Pratt Institute. She began teaching in 2006. She’s taught art at all levels from pre-k to 12th grade. She also teaches yoga at UASLE, having earned a 200-hour certification from Breathe for Change in 2019 after practicing yoga for many years.

When she’s not in school teaching, Ms. Luzzi can be found hanging out with her two cats, Hamilton and Catie, studying Italian, riding her blue bicycle, taking walks or running in Prospect Park, or cooking a delicious meal for family and friends.

More than anything, she enjoys watching her students surprise themselves with what they are able to do in art class. Ms. Luzzi is so excited to keep learning and creating with her UASLE students!
