About Us

Beware Wet Paint is a progressive art school that offers courses to students from 4 years old to pre-college and adult levels. We are diverse in approach and practice, bringing insight and passion to the art of teaching. Since we limit class size, students of all levels are guaranteed to get the most from this unique experience. Under the guidance of our professional, dedicated artist-educators, students learn to experiment, create and interact liberally with art. Most of all, we aim to help children excel in their individual and intellectual growth through a variety of artistic and cultural perspectives.

Because of our liberal teaching philosophy of putting equal emphasis in developing both original creativity and technique since young age, we have successfully inspired and helped many talented young artists to accomplish outstanding achievements and participate in events both locally and internationally.


Achievements includes top awards in major contests such as United Nations International Children Painting Competition, Space Foundation International Children Competition, Toronto Dragon Boat Festival Poster Design Competition and The DX Canadian High School Annual Design Competition; participating in community and charity events such as creating fund-raising Christmas cards for Orbis Canada and Chi Heng Foundation, and creating theme kite for the Markham’s Kite Festival.

Art can be a tool for living life reflectively, joyfully and with the ability to shape the world around us. To make what you imagine and express what you believe, start learning now!

Thanks for your hard work and support to help Jonathan to have such great learning and achievement in the United Nations international contest. A very good experience for him.

Thank you for your patience and time for helping me prepare my portfolio. I would not have been accepted if it wasn’t for your help.
~Eve Wong, previous portfolio student/got into Illustration program in university
Under your guidance I have not only improved on my techniques, but I’ve also learned to think conceptually. These things I got you do not being to express my gratitude to you. Without your unwaverly support, patience and pride for your student’s work, I would have never gotten this far in the arts. And for that I say thank you.
~Jasmine Leung, previous portfolio student/got into Graphic Design program in university
Congratulation!!! Though Boris no longer can make the time to learn in your school, we could see the result of your on-going enthuisiam and inspiration on the students under your guidance. Keep up! It really is a blessing for a person to have both interest and career blossomed at the right time of your life. We are lucky and proud to have such a good art school in Toronto.

好棒的老師和學校,那些畫和作品都充滿童趣和創意。非常喜歡這裏,感覺這裏才象個做藝術的地方。安靜的畫畫,每個孩子都畫自己獨一無二的畫。 學校鼓勵孩子自由的創作,用多點時間在一張畫上。寧可精些,不看量大。畫 100 張平庸之作,不如用心用時間好好畫好一張。在不斷的修改中,孩子也學會了什麼都要精益求精的品德。

Since the age of 5, Helena Ng has inspired and guided me to a prosperous future in pursuing art. I am eternally grateful for all the extra hours and hard work she has generously given me. This art school almost feels like a second home to me; a place where I am surrounded by people who share the same artistic passion as me. I am proud to say that out of the 1200 people who applied to Ryerson University’s architectural science program, I am one of the 120 people who have been accepted. I couldn’t have done it without Helena’s help in the creation of my portfolio. I gained insightful tips and advice from other teachers who have attended similar universities such as Chris and Viola. For the past 12 years of my life, Beware of Wet Paint Progressive Art School has prepared me for the next educational journey that I will embark upon. Thank you!
