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 flicker candles; create breath-taking masks, scenic art drops and special makeup effects.

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)​

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