Santa Claus is taking the entire band on tour this holiday season and their first stop is Façade Academy of the Arts! We are rocking in the holiday season with this year’s Rock ‘n Roll-themed set design.

Our creative team were hard at work for over two months to bring you this totally, awesome set design – inspired by the glam-rock of the 1980’s! But Santa isn’t the only rockstar performing at Façade Academy this Christmas – he is joined by some familiar icons (with a Christmas twist) Madonna, David ‘Bow’ie, Tinsel Turner, Elfton John and Kiss!

Drop by and see Santa & his Merry band playing exclusivly at Façade  Academy of the Arts this holiday season!

Our Christmas Window Display

This year, the theme for our annual Christmas window display was “Christmas in Hawaii”. Our talented artists at Facade Academy spent months, cutting, painting and gluing to take you far from the cold of Canadian winters and into the sunshine of beautiful Hawaii. Even Santa and his elf are getting in on the fun, and of course, no Hawaiian set-piece is complete without the king himself – Elvis!

Our Christmas Card

To complement the “Hawaiin Christmas” window display, the team at Facade used themselves as the canvas to paint these amazing tropical landscapes. Mele Kalikimaka!

OUR WINDOW DISPLAY

This year, the theme for our annual Christmas window display was “Tinsle Town”. Our talented artists at Facade Academy spent months, sculpting, cutting, painting and gluing to create a mini tinsle town. During the day, it sparkles and shines like a silver dreamland, and at night it emits a warm glow that’ll put you in the holiday spirit. Constructed from a variety of materials like foam board, cardstock, pipe cleaners and cotton balls, this stunning installation is a treat for all visitors to our studio to see!

OUR CARD

 To complement the “tinsel town” window display, the team at Facade ran with the silver theme and took it to the next level with these fun pictures.

Fall 2016

Our in-house Gallery is one of the main features at Faҫade Academy.  Upon entering the plaza, visitors will be presented with an incredible view of our galleria, showcased by a wraparound glass faҫade.  Occasionally it will feature many art pieces from well-known local artists both for display and for sale.  These artists attract a large following; our galleria offers a unique space to exhibit their latest work and coordinate private showcases.   Seasonally the gallery will present several thematic displays designed and developed within our academy by our very own students and instructors.  These displays may be correlated with: competitions, workshops, portfolio pieces and exclusive features to our academy.
