"I love teaching art," declares teaching veteran and artist Ann Bridges on her YouTube video. Her students agree. "She helps you develop your own technique and your own style," shares one, and another muses, "Ann is the kind of teacher who creates a really great atmosphere in the studio… I feel like it's a place where I can improve my technique and also foster my creativity."
Drawing inspiration from locales ranging from the cerulean vistas of Catalina Island to the smoky peaks of the Eastern Sierras and the urban landscapes of Los Angeles, Bridges paints as well as she instructs. She creates her work with an impressionist style, an artist's eye, and wrist flicks puppeteered by Monet's ghost.
