Eleanor Crow

My teaching of drawing and painting is all about understanding what we see , and how we engage with it. Working with line, colour, form, shape, composition, I’m interested in how we communicate through painting and mark-making, and the multiple ways in which people have responded to and painted the people, places and things around them.

Eleanor Crow was born and grew up in Cornwall, later moving to Gloucestershire. She studied at Edinburgh College of Art (BA Fine Art Drawing & Painting), and Central Saint Martins (MA in Communication Design). She worked as a book cover designer for Faber & Faber before returning to painting full-time. She has taught drawing and design at a number of art colleges in the UK and in Prague.

Group exhibitions include Lynn Painter-Stainers, Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Society of Women Artists and the Royal Scottish Academy open exhibitions. She also exhibits at Morgans Falmouth, Town House Spitalfields and Old School Gallery, Alnmouth.

What our students say

Eleanor is a brilliant teacher, she managed to spend plenty of time with us individually as well as in a group and was encouraging and inspired us to make the most of our own individual styles.


Fantastic course. Eleanor was very generous with her advice and knowledge, and I certainly went away with a lot of information on how to approach tone, palette, and composition.
