Angela Estes Russell

Resident Teaching Artist

Angela is an artist & professional baker who joined ArtReach in 2022. She began teaching at the New Children’s Museum in San Diego where she led studio workshops and summer camps while attending the University of California San Diego’s Visual Arts Program. In 2013 she combined her love for art & dessert and opened a bakery specializing in contemporary cake design.

Her aim in the classroom is to encourage exploration & experimentation through the process of art making. She believes that creating art can help children learn to trust their unique voices and become more comfortable engaging in new experiences. Outside of the classroom, Angela can be found baking sweets for her friends, hugging her senior puppies, and spending time with her family.
