Update Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Hi everyone, We appreciate the continued support and enthusiasm for our upcoming programming. Last week, we had said that scheduling/registration/pricing information updated on our site and sent out to newsletter subscribers at some point this week, however, like all businesses, we have been carefully monitoring the situation surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19). Given that measures are being undertaken at various levels of government to ensure public safety above all else, we will be further postponing the dispersal of this information, as we certainly wouldn't classify ourselves as an essential service during this difficult time. We will continue to keep you updated on the situation as things develop but rest assured that we are using this time to continue both renovating and beautifying the physical space (which will remain closed to the public until we feel it is safe to do so, in accordance with government advisories, and our commitment to health and safety) and planning an amazing line-up of programs and workshops to inspire and excite painters, illustrators, sculptors, and other creators of all ages. Right now, we urge everyone to continue prioritizing your health, safety, and overall well being, but should you wish to reach us, feel free to call 416-258-1016 or email We know that this is a challenging time for all and we do appreciate your patience. We're excited to open as soon as it is reasonable to do so and promise that no longer how long the delay, our programming will be worth the wait! If you haven't done so already, please feel free to sign up for our newsletter at Be well, and stay safe! Shane Kirshenblatt Owner/Program Director/Head Instructor Create With Kirshy

Welcome To Create With Kirshy!

We are thrilled to announce that Create with Kirshy will be opening at 55 Glen Cameron Rd. #201, Thornhill in early April!

We would first like to thank and acknowledge the support and guidance offered by our predecessor at this location, Katerina Atapina, who ran the highly successful Art and Design School in the community for many years. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours, and we strive to maintain the same level of traditional art programming which she worked so hard to establish. 

In addition to the traditional, we will be adding a touch (or more) of the digital, as will be featured in our upcoming kids (7 +) courses and camps in Creating Comics, Animation, and Tabletop Card and Game Design. There will be plenty for our younger participants as well, with our daily after-school programming for kids 5 +, as well as themed courses which will allow them to explore a variety of drawing, painting and sculpting medium while building confidence in their art and learning from experienced and professional art instructors. And of course, let's not forget about our Clay Creations program, for those looking to give a new dimension to their ideas, in the form of polymer clay figurines, jewelry and more.

We have also added intensive programs for adults looking to develop skills relating to drawing, painting and budding comic book creators. These courses are designed to be both beginner-friendly, and challenging, with follow-ups planned to help each participant reach their artistic goals. There is a lot more we can say about some of the other upcoming specialty workshops we have planned, but I wanted to take this opportunity to once again mention our exciting Summer Camp Programs (Ages 7 +).  These one-week mega sessions (starting  June 29, 2020) are going to be jam-packed with exciting projects (including mini-comics, card games, and custom action figures) so even though registration for this and our other programs doesn't officially begin until the week of Mar.16, 2020, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at and pre-register (at no risk, no deposit) to secure your spot.

Lots of exciting things on the horizon, and for a limited time, sign up to our Newsletter for a chance to win a FREE one-week session at our Create With Kirshy Art/Multimedia Super Summer Camp for a family member or friend! Draw will take place on April 30, 2020
