Sussex County Arts Club is an arts club based in central Brighton which is open to both professional and amateur artists. We hold various drop in life drawing sessions with life models throughout the week.

Our Brighton club holds an annual show during the Brighton Festival in which members may exhibit their work.

Membership is not necessary to attend life drawing or other sessions however members pay £1 less per session. Becoming a member of Sussex County Arts Club allows you to attend any session throughout the year and also be included in special events such joint exhibitions and social functions. Membership also gives you  10% discount at Clarkes Stationers (which is almost next door to the club) and Cass Arts in central Brighton.

Membership is £21 per annum.

In addition to our regular weekly drop-in club sessions, the main studio is also used by other organisations or groups for tutored classes.
