About Me!
Holly Thorstad


My name is Holly Thorstad and I am Anthony's Art and Design teacher.  I joined the Anthony team in the fall of 2015. I have been teaching in different capacities since 2003.  My experiences include teaching art at Como Park Sr. High School, Hmong College Prep Academy, and at Bethlehem Community Center in South Minneapolis.

I graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design with a Bachelor's of Fine Art in Animation in 2007.  I worked in the animation industry for a number of years but always felt something was missing.  While in college started mentoring elementary age students.  This experience helped me realize that I love teaching!  So I decided to go back to school attending Augsburg College's teaching program which I completed in 2013.

Here at Anthony Middle School am excited to share my passions for art and animation in traditional art classes, graphic arts class and 3D computer modeling.
