Baxter Studio School logoThe art of creativity

The Baxter Studio School (BaxSS), is an exciting new initiative by the Baxter Arts Centre. Now in its second year BaxSS is looking to expand and broaden its selection of courses given by Prince Edward County artists and artisans. One of the most creative places to learn is right within the artist’s studio. This is the concept behind BaxSS. An art school without walls, but within studios that act as satellite classrooms. We invite you to apply as an instructor to this program and become a part of this creative new school. It is an opportunity for you to have interested and interesting people come into your studio to learn how you do what you do, to be inspired and encouraged by your, and then their, own creativity and to ensure they have broadened their knowledge through learning about your work. All our current artists will attest to the enriching of this experience. Please see the testimonials on our website.

Why participate in the BaxSS…..
The Baxter Arts Centre has a strong presence within the Prince Edward County community. Whilst you will be expected to promote your workshops through your own means and formats, Baxter Arts Centre is able to provide promotion and marketing for your workshop through press releases, flyers, the BAXSS website, regular e news bulletins and through social media.
