Ann Shteynblik, an instructor at the One River Art School, is a graduate of Mason Gross School of Art and an art teacher of six years. The teacher has considered herself a practicing artist ever since she could hold a pencil. Shteynblik is drawn to the challenging and exciting characteristics of art, "I love how unpredictable art can be. It can be everywhere, even when you least expect it. To see the world through an artists' eyes is always so much fun," she said. Her enthusiasm truly translates in her classes, "I love inspiring kids and love it when they accomplish something they do not believe themselves capable of. I love to see them in those moments. It is why I teach," said Shteynblik.
