We are Off the Wall

and we love theatre

We engage some of North America's finest backstage theatre artists to mentor and inspire learners. Our courses and workshops will bring you behind the curtain to learn how to construct and paint impressive sets; build props ranging from faux food to flicker candles; create breath-taking masks, scenic art drops and special effects makeup.

Every learning opportunity we offer is intensive and hands-on, conducted in a working studio where students receive one-on-one mentorship from our artist instructors. The goal of our mentors is to pass on, to the next generation of artists, the skills and knowledge they have acquired through years of professional experience.   

Established in 2005, Off the Wall is a Registered Charity.(#853478964RT001)​

Donations/Sponsorships to support scholarships and programming expenses are gratefully received. Tax receipts for the full amount of the donation will be issued.
