As a response to a need within the artistic community of the Niagara Region, Studio 201 was launched in 2014, by Mori McCrae. It was organized as an affordable, centrally located 36 James Street Downtown St. Catharines opportunity for artists of all levels to draw from the human figure. In 2013, the Studio began offering weekly figure drawing sessions as a non-profit initiative to provide the St. Catharines arts community with an opportunity to draw the human form.
Attendees at every level, from beginner to professional learn together. No prior experience required.
Sessions held Tuesday evenings from 7pm-9pm 2018
"Studio 201 has been a great asset to me personally. It helps me by providing a professional milieu to draw from life each week. I'm also inspired when I look at the other artists' work. I've made good friends over the past three years through the Studio and enjoy a relaxing drink in their company at the end of each evening.
