The shop is a studio, workspace and gallery for local-born and raised artist Vincent Michael Brown, exhibiting his and other personally selected established artists.

Artime Classes

Artime holds several different types of art classes both evenings and daytimes. Watercolour and acrylic painting classes are guided while each student has the same reference picture or subject and is tutored through every step required to complete a finished painting within a single session.

We also run an open class where people may bring their art projects and only receive individual guidance if and when required. This is our longest-running and most varied class where we often have sculpture included. It is also well suited for GCSE art students who feel they could benefit from some extra guidance. We have a very good art library which can be useful if you're looking for inspiration at any time.

All of our art classes included midway refreshments, some biscuits and in our exclusive class - the occasional piece of chocolate.

The social side of the class is a very important part for all, and we are very proud to have some very lovely regular students who are the life and soul of Artime, and our encouraging, supportive atmosphere is ideal for less confident people.

Several times each year we invite professional artists to give talks or demonstrations at the shop. These can be free events or pre-booked ticket demonstrations. The latest events can be found by following our Facebook page.
