Academy of Realist Art


The Academy is currently open for in-person learning.

Open Studio is held Monday-Thursday from 10-4 and Saturdays from 11-5. Virtual learning options are listed on our Workshops page.
To limit capacity in each room, all students who wish to return to class must first email Colleen to make arrangements. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required to access the building, and no drop-ins will be accepted.
For a tour of the studio, please phone Ms. Colleen Johnston for an appointment: (416) 766-1280.
Unfortunately we can’t provide unscheduled tours because they can disturb classes in progress, but we will be happy to make an appointment to suit your schedule.
The Academy closes to observe a holiday period for ~2 weeks over Christmas/New Year’s Day (closed from December 21, 2020-January 2, 2021 inclusive). We are open on all other statutory holidays.
