We are Off the Wall
and we love theatre
We engage some of North America's finest backstage theatre artists to instruct 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 furniture to flicker candles; and design and create breath-taking masks, wigs, makeup and stage costumes.
Every learning opportunity we offer is intensive and hands-on, conducted in a working studio where you receive one-on-one mentorship from our artist instructors. The goal of our mentors is to pass on the knowledge they have acquired through years of professional experience to the next generation of artists.
Established in 2005, Off the Wall is a registered charity.(#853478964RT001)
“I'm a drama teacher, I work with a small theatre company and I'm always learning new ideas to bring back to my students and to my theatre.”
