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

Our members are very supportive of one another and enjoy great camaraderie during all sessions. As artists we respect each others' different mediums, styles and content, and encourage each other in our development.
