New Courses for the autumn term
The autumn term at Phoenix Art Space kicks off this September. Explore your creative side with a variety of painting, print, sculpture or making courses, programmed for both complete beginners and those with more experience.
We’ve also got some new courses this term which we’re very excited about –
