Figure It Out 1 of 50 4 _edited.jpg

Hello!

This is Unorthodox Studios

From 2017 to 2020 we hosted figure drawing sessions, printmaking workshops, and solo exhibitions for local artists in the heart of NoDa in Charlotte. We are currently located at The Visual And Performing Arts Center in Uptown. The VAPA Center hosts 11 art-related organizations and over 250 solo artists, including Ms. Meikle. As of right now, Unorthodox Studios does not have any programs, but we are looking for funding in order to give back to the community.
