A thorough and supportive teacher with excellent communication
I have taught with El in the Whitechapel Gallery and have since set up a company with her named Root Drawing to teach observational drawing in London.
She is a clear and thorough teacher with very good communication. She is supportive to students of all abilities and allows them the space to learn. I have been inspired by the fresh and exciting ideas she comes up with for classes and when reviewing work.
The outcome has been a new company and an appreciated colleague
Inventive and encouraging teacher
Eleanor is a intuitive teacher, able to understand individual student development needs, beginners through to more experienced artists - encouraging each student to become better. Her classes are well thought out and inventive making you feel you are part of something unique.
As a beginner, who is not naturally very good at art I have been able to recognise where I need to improve, where I have ability to communicate a vision and generally gaining in confidence.
Professional and Engaging Art Teacher
Excellent communication skills, taught her subject area well. Able to communicate with children - focused teaching with clear aims in mind.
An improvement in my child's drawing skills and confidence
Eleanor and I worked together to prepare for a painting workshop on Starry night. She had some good ideas to make the painting accessible to all levels and to also have fun!
Look forward to painting more together
Eleanor has been amazing teaching all the painting workshops that I have held. She has been able to break down famous paintings into manageable chunks for a mixed level group -about 15 to 20 participants. They have all walked away with wonderful canvases and been very proud of their work. I look forward to working together in the future.
