Studio 101 is an Eastside Arts Society program dedicated to supporting diverse and engaging artistic experiences for 220 of Vancouver’s inner-city youth annually.

Many Eastside schools are located in the inner-city and have limited exposure to professional artists and arts experiences beyond the classroom. Studio 101 brings school children into participating Eastside Culture Crawl artist studio spaces for free, hands-on workshops. For many participants, it is their first time connecting with professional artists. The program provides students with insights into the various phases of the creative process, while promoting creative confidence and fostering an appreciation of the visual arts.
