Our art studio gives you the chance to try your hand in the arts and explore professional creative opportunities.

Artist workshops

Artist-led workshops are held most Wednesdays from 3.30 to 5.30pm.

Programs and workshops range from acrylic painting, mosaics, photography, comic illustration, screen printing, lino cutting, book making, and a variety of crafts.

You don't need any experience or materials - just come along and try something!

Artist in Residency for young artists

If you are aged from 12 to 25 and would like to produce a body of work in the studio and hold an exhibition, then Phoenix Youth Hub is the place for you. Your medium could be painting, drawing, photography, 3 dimensional works and so on.

The Artist in Residency Program provides the artist or group with the opportunity to use the Phoenix Art Studio for a period of three months. You will also have the use of the Phoenix Gallery for a two month exhibition.

In addition, we will provide material support up to $250 which could include art materials, invitation postcards and so on. Assistance will be given in planning, marketing and advertising.

We offer two Artist in Residencies a year.
