Bang lived in a period where female artists were unwelcome and not allowed to attend the Art Academies. In spite of the difficult circumstances she managed to impress some of her male collages who later took her as their private pupil. Bang studied with the artists, E. Rasmussen Eilersen, N. Chr. Kierkegaard and F. Helsted. At the end of Bangs carrier she opened her own private art school where she encouraged and helped other female artists to get acknowledged in the art industries.
