STUDIO 201 is an artist collective located in Peterborough Ontario run entirely by volunteer members. Our aim is to bring together aspiring and professional artists in a supportive space and to support the growth of local arts and culture. We offer open studios in life drawing, portraiture, and landscape, as well as providing artist-instructed workshops and courses, and an en plein air painters group.  

We have member and non-member rates for all open studios, courses and workshops.
