About the Teacher
Valerie W.Figure Drawing and Painting April 20, 2017
By far the best art class you can take in LA!! Ann is fantastic and so great at teaching. I feel so comfortable exploring my creative side yet I still feel like I have her to guide me. It never felt like a classroom you would get in a boring school it feels so authentic and real at Ann's studio.. go!
Penny P.Introduction to Acrylic Painting December 13, 2016
I always drew stick figures...until I took class from Ann now I can really paint pictures that look like what they are.... my husband hung one in the living room!!!! And it's an amazing space.

I have never been able to draw or paint but I got talked into a class with my friends at Ann Bridges. We now meet once a month at Ann's studio for a fantastic lesson and camaraderie. The best part is even though i think I'm terrible, it doesn't matter because there's no judgement by Ann or my friends. The joy is in losing yourself in the process. And here's the surprise. Ann is actually teaching me to draw, enough so that I bought some materials and I am practicing at home. It's fun and a huge stress reducer. She's a remarkable teacher and a really fine painter herself.

Just finished the week long figure drawing session and I just loved it! This studio has such a comfortable vibe, where I could really focus on drawing. Ann is a great teacher with tons of patience and is really encouraging with her critiques.
I also have been taking the weekly portrait classes with Siri France. It's been wonderful! I've learned different methods of working with charcoal, pencils and ink. So enjoyable. I will be coming back :)

My dearest and I had the pleasure on Wednesday night of taking an intro acrylics class with Ann. She's genuine, funny, and very energetic, and clearly enjoys her work and teaching. The rooftop was great to unwind on with our wine before settling down to learn. The studio is a bright and airy penthouse and the entire experience was light and cozy. Neither of us is the stuffy type, so we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Ann is so sweet! My roommate and I did a beginners paint class on a Wednesday night, and I learned a lot about basic color theory. Using complementary colors to create shadows really made more sense than using gray, which up until now is what I had used for shadows. I had made an appointment about a month ago and we had to cancel last minute Ann rescheduled us no problem. I'm really interested in taking more classes with Ann! Thank you so much!

I came here to learn to draw, something I hadn't done since preschool, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Ann is warm and welcoming, and is extremely knowledgeable about art and how to teach untalented klutzes like me. She knows how to bolster confidence while suggesting ways to improve. Her studio is spacious and light and has one of the most amazing views I've ever seen in LA. In a perfect world, I would draw for an hour every day in her studio.

We had a wonderful experience at Ann Bridges Art Studio for acrylic painting last night. This is an instructor led session. Ann is a terrific instructor. It's awesome that she provided us with the details and fundamentals to painting before we started painting a portrait of Still Life. The pace of her session is remarkable. It is very rare to find a great instructor. So take advantage of this if you are interested in art, painting, or even picking up a new hobby. You'll definitely love it!

What a fun way to spend the afternoon! Great studio space overlooking the city, and we loved Ann's teaching style, very informative and fun! Highly recommend taking a class. Hopefully we'll be back!
Georgina H.Introduction to Acrylic Painting December 12, 2014
I thoroughly enjoyed my acrylics intro class with Ann... I've not painted anything since I left school and this has inspired me to take up weekly classes. Painting is very therapeutic and a wonderful way to introduce some calm to a hectic lifestyle. The environment is intimate which is a perfect learning environment and Ann is wonderful teacher. Looking forward to going back!
Patricia B.Introduction to Acrylic Painting July 9, 2014
I just took the intro to painting with acrylics class & was really impressed. Not only does Ann have a wonderful energy she is also an amazing teacher. I went home with a painting AND knowledge about paint colors and shadows and how to mix the paints to achieve the right colors for shadows, highlights and tones... in just 2 hours. I absolutely intend to enroll in more of her classes! I look forward to going back soon!!
Julien D.Introduction to Acrylic Painting May 17, 2014
I enjoyed the Into to Acrylics class. She knows how to keep it fun, while you learn a little at the same time.
I've taken at least a half dozen beginner paint classes. Usually paint/ party type where they help you make a pretty picture, but you don't really learn how to paint on your own. Ann's class was more of an instructor based that teaches how to painting fundamentals. I found this to be more valuable and look forward to taking more classes.
Quick tip: You are allowed to bring wine, but don't serve yourself in red solo cups or you may accidentally drink your paint water!

Had such a good time at Ann Bridges Art Studio!! Took an intro to acrylic painting class and Ann was such a great instructor. She was so thorough with her explanations and was so incredibly nice. She gave us all the tools we needed, and showed up step by step on how to draw on our canvas. I had such a good time here that I would definitely come back again some time or even sign up for art classes!!!
