About Phoenix Brighton Arts Courses
Phoenix Brighton’s arts courses provide a unique mix of high quality workshops aimed at practicing and aspiring artists and art lovers at all levels. They are suitable for anyone (from beginners upwards unless otherwise stated) who wants to learn new skills from professional artists and would like to meet likeminded people in a supportive and creative environment. We normally provide all the basic materials unless stated in the course descriptions. You need to register in advance as some popular courses fill up very quickly.
All courses are aimed at adults (over 18) unless otherwise stated. Course fees are kept as low as possible to encourage everyone to participate in the arts, including those on low incomes but not eligible for benefits, such as many artists. Therefore we do not offer separate concessionary rates for members of the public. We are unable to offer discounted rates for other reasons, for instance if you are unable to attend all the sessions, unless the course has already started and has unfilled spaces.
