If you are a new member, or new to a particular class, you must first contact the Society via the Contact Us form or phone our office on 9553 8506 before enrolling.

We have both a working Studio and a Gallery for exhibitions. Our Studio is a fantastic open space on Level 2 of the Old Brighton Town Hall , providing great lighting and ambience. We supply easels and backing boards, folding tables, floodlights, still life items, wash-up area, and a storage area if you want to leave your work to dry. You’ll need to bring all your own art materials – we advise you talk to the tutor if uncertain about what you’ll need. Also, there’s a kitchen where you can make hot or cold drinks (we supply tea & coffee at nominal cost).

Our Gallery (the Kevin Taylor Gallery, after a late BAS tutor) is a secure space adjacent to our studio where anyone from an individual member to one of our groups can hold an exhibition. The Studio & Gallery have a full calendar of events during the year.
