Our school basically lost its arts program so we are thrilled to know about Eliot School!  I really liked the variety of mediums we used (prints, charcoal, and collage).  I also liked the freedom of expression, originality, music during class, reflection after class, curation, and art show.  I also loved getting Silvia’s “newsletters."


I wanted my child to explore her talents and she wanted to learn more technical aspects of drawing and painting.  Silvia was wonderful! She actually helped us find the right place for our daughter and encouraged her greatly.
