The is one of the best teachers ever. She is demanding, and pushy, and imposing, and there to help you with getting the best that life has to offer. I developed into a good artist, but she help me develop the lingo, to get me into many art venue and gallery circles. I regret being in only 2 of her classes. I now have a muti-million dollar business, because she provided me references in Art history, where I always walk the walk, but she allied me to talk the talk. Thank you, Ms Ellison.

One thing i don't like about teachers is when they're too nice and you can't not like them. Ellison is very picky with grading. However, she was too nice and I couldn't not like her. Because of her, my art average was below 90.

I have her again this year, and I haven't changed my opinion on her - she continues to ignore me whenever I need her help, and continues giving me her "attitude" - very discouraging person who did not help me in any way at lal.

shes the corniest woman alive, i feel like shes straight out of 7th heaven, or worse. Her analogies and attempts at a joke make me sick. But although she's annoying as hell, she's nice and a nice grader.

I changed my opinion of her this semester, I think she's actually a very good teacher and very insightful- her knowledge of sculpture is really amazing, and she's generally an understanding person.....I like her

She teaches pretty well...yet her voice sometimes makes me want to fall asleep. She's knowledgeable when it comes to art but it doesn't mean that she can make her classes exciting and lively all the time.

she copies all the art she does. we had to go see this exhibit and then they had the faculty print show nd it was exactly what she did was exactly what was in the museum. not originial. very sloppy with hand movements like throwing around chisels and mallets and stuff.

Ug. Can we please give the whole "I can relate printmaking to everything" a break?! Not every little thing in this world can be also seen in making prints. Give it a rest.

She had a habit of belittling students in front of the class without first ascertaining the student's particular situation.

Mrs. Ellis has a lot on her mind. She is also a dean. Working hard to help students who don't even try. She is another one to take her work seriously.
