Anna Hasselman was born in Indianapolis in 1871. She studied at Mount Vernon Seminary in Washington, D.C., and moved to New York City to concentrate on her artistic pursuits. While in New York, Anna was enrolled at Columbia University, the Art Students League, and the Chase School of Art. Her instructors included William Forsyth and William Merritt Chase. She also studied with Charles Lasar in England in 1900, Charles W. Hawthorne in Massachusetts, and Eliot O’Hara at Goose Rocks Beach in Maine.

Anna worked primarily in watercolor, oftentimes painting landscapes during her travels around the United States and abroad. She was also an accomplished etcher and woodcut artist, and produced numerous bookplates that garnered critical attention. She participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Indianapolis. She also participated in group shows in New York and Washington, D.C., as a member of the American Watercolor Society and the Society of Washington Artists, respectively.

Besides her commercial output, Anna was perhaps most influential as an art teacher and curator. She taught at Mount Vernon Seminary from 1908 to 1917. In 1918, she joined the faculty of the John Herron Art Institute and began teaching classes in still life, the history of painting and sculpture, history of art, and lectures in architecture. In addition to her teaching position, which she held from 1918 through 1934, Anna served as the curator of the John Herron Art Museum from 1921 through 1952.
