The Baxter Arts Centre
Where Creativity meets Community

The Baxter Arts Center is a dynamic space where creativity meets community through arts education, activity and engagement. 
We are committed to providing experiential learning through play, making and doing.  Our diverse range of programming supports arts education for all skill levels and ages while also aiming to build community, creative fundamentals and confidence.

Our workshops span a wide range of creative fields: writing, fibre arts, painting & visual arts, yoga, dance, singing and so much more! 

Check out all of our workshops to see what may suit your interests.

We encourage you to try something new! Remember: doing new things builds curiosity, challenges you and is healthy for your brain.


What People are Saying...

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the lovely march break camp you put on last week.  You enriched our children’s lives by introducing them to textures, new materials and art processes. Every day my children came home inspired, excited for art and design and surprisingly zen- lol.  Well done!  I can’t wait to see the finished product. 

Just a taste of the courses we have on offer this Spring and Summer
