Elsie Ward (also known as Elsie Ward Hering) (1872 or 1874 – 1923) was an American sculptor born in Fayette, Missouri.

Ward began her art studies in Denver, Colorado, studying with Preston Powers. After moving to New York she attended the Art Students League where she studied with Daniel Chester French, H. Siddons Mowbray and Augustus Saint Gaudens. She then became an assistant to Saint Gaudens, completing some of his commissions following his death in 1907. While working for him she met another of his assistants, Henry Hering. "After her marriage to Henry Hering in 1910, she seldom worked independently but assisted her husband on his projects." [1]
