Studio Technique is a studio for professional artists looking to improve their skills as well as a training ground for young or amateur artists. The training offered focuses on drawing, animation and artistic development. Our chief mandate is to provide a strong foundation in drawing, which will not only strengthen the abilities of the fine artist, but provide the knowledge needed by artists in such varied fields as animation, illustration, concept art, visual development, comic book art and the graphic novel. While Studio Technique is devoted to building a community and a workspace for artists and animators in Montreal, it also offers online classes and master classes to students around the world.
Because of the caliber of its artistic training, Studio Technique has been employed to provide specialized training to many professional studios globally.

Art is a language and in order to fully express oneself as an artist, one needs a wide range of tools. Creating good art is about being able to make an informed choice as to what you want to express and how you want to express it. If the tools are limited so will be the end result. For a poet to compose they must have a wide knowledge of words to effectively invest their verse with power and imagery. So the visual artist must be fully versed in artistic tools no matter what stylistic approach they choose, to realize their vision. At Studio Technique this is what we offer. To the professional, a means to extend their abilities, to the amateur artist, who seeks to tap into their inner creativity, we will provide the means to do so by teaching a full range of artistic techniques.
