To Our Prospective Student
Whether you are a designer, animator, illustrator, artist, hobbyist, student or someone who believes in art as a form of therapy, Behind the Front Visual Arts Studio has something to offer you. Creating art is an opportunity to express one’s self imaginatively, authentically, and spontaneously; it is an experience that over time, can lead to personal fulfillment, emotional reparation and recovery. Whatever your reason, Behind the Front will help you grow artistically with our team of qualified artists.

Our Objective
Our goal is to provide students with traditional skills for drawing, designing and animating. We focus on the understanding of figurative techniques (realistic drawing) by learning to see the things in our foreground, mid-ground and background. We believe that learning to draw is learning to see. Once students acquire these fundamental skills the focus turns to developing personal expression.

The Program
Our program is from 6:30pm to 9:30pm and starts Wednesday November 30th. It focuses on how to approach the human figure, how to simplify the difficult, what is important, line & analysis and using geometry.

Materials and Supplies
All basic drawing supplies are provided by the studio. We work strictly with qualified models at no extra cost to our students. Student’s work can be stored on the premise for the duration of their studies. To ensure the comfort of our students, our studio is also equipped with stud horses designed by Instructor Adrian Hayles.

Monday Drop in Sessions
The sessions will go from 6:30pm to 9:30pm every Monday. Each session will cost $10. We also offer cards of 10 sessions for $80. Participants are required to bring their own materials.
