Rachel Cohen studied Art History (BA) at Sussex University and Fine Art (PG Dip) at Brighton. She has an MA in museum and gallery education from the Institute of Education, London. She learned printmaking at a private college in Treviso, Italy and at Kensington and Chelsea Institute in London. Rachel works with wide range of techniques and materials. She creates objects, site-specific installations and participatory events.

Dinah Kelly received her BA in Fine Art from the Ruskin School of Drawing. She works as an artist-educator for several major museums, including The Royal Academy of Art, Pallant House, and the Courtauld Institute where she gives expert gallery talks and leads workshops in response to their collections. She also teaches GCSE and A level art in Brighton. Her own artwork is influenced by her travels abroad and her sketchbook of drawings and collages acts as a catalyst for developing her ideas further in her studio at Phoenix Brighton.

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.

How To Pay

We accept payment online by PayPal, credit or debit card (as a guest without starting a PayPal account) and offline via cheque (choose the 'show other payment options' under the 'PayPal Checkout' button for this option). Cheques must be payable to "Phoenix Brighton" and sent with full contact details and the name of the course you are booking to: The Artistic Learning Co-ordinator, Phoenix Brighton, 10-14 Waterloo Place, Brighton, BN2 9NB. We regret we do not have the facility to take card payments over the telephone or in person. To pay by card click 'order now' and choose the second option (underneath the pay by PayPal option).
