I just came back from the student art show/open house at Artbarn School. There was a good mix of artwork from watercolour to encaustic work. So, if you are interested in taking some art lessons in Toronto, this is a nice place to start. They are very friendly!
I submitted a quick drawing I did in one of their drop-in life drawing classes.
Here are some pictures:
Mine is the bottom one in the light brown frame:
