Baster Arts Centre exterior

baxter-arts-centre-logo-whIn 2011, a group of local individuals purchased the Baxter Building, 3 Stanley St, Bloomfield from the County of Prince Edward. Baxter Arts Centre provides varied arts programs for residents of Prince Edward County and visitors. We give people of all ages opportunities to be creative and to connect with our region’s vibrant arts community. Our programming began in the fall of 2012. In 2015 over 3,000 people attended one of our over 50 programs or events.

The Baxter Studio School is an exciting new creative program established in 2016 by the Baxter Arts Centre to provide unique workshops taught by Prince Edward County professional artists. Working in the artist’s studio in a fun and supportive atmosphere both curious beginners and experienced participants can enjoy the best possible hands-on studio-based exploration, to create and produce a personal artwork.




  • A special thank you to Baxter Studio School for taking the initiative to become a hub of artist-run workshops. Just imagine the many curious beginners as well as those with some art experience who will be inspired by working with the talented professional artists in our County. Way to go Baxter Arts Centre!


  • We are so blessed to have the Baxter Studio School in The County.

    If you are in the area … support it. What a great Christmas gift.

    If you are from outside of the area … support it. Come for a weekend and enjoy everything else that the County has to offer as well! It is an artist’s playground!

  • Many thanks for making a new experience available to us right here, at home, in this wonderful County.
