Artime is managed by Vincent and his wife Liana and offers art tuition for all abilities including professional and experienced artists as well as complete beginners or people with learning difficulties. We also run weekly art therapy classes for elderly dementia sufferers.
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.
Liana and Vincent would very much like Artime to be seen as an open studio and artistic hub, connecting creative people in the local community.
Gallery co-founder Vincent Michael Brown is a professional portrait artist whose previous portrait commissions include Academy award-winning directors and members of the Royal Family and his paintings have featured in major exhibitions including The Royal Society of Portrait Painters and the National Portrait Gallery's world-famous 'BP Portrait Award'.
In 2006 Vincent was selected as the winner of the largest art prize in the south-west of England by Sir Peter Blake and Times art critic Rachel Campbell Johnson.Go to Vincent's website to read more.
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.
Private classes are for one on one tuition. This is the only class where we allow children under the age of eleven if they are accompanied by an adult. All of our art classes include 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.
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.
Our Bristol-based gallery features more than 300 paintings and drawings from award-winning celebrated artists both local and international. We sell original paintings, drawings, etchings and more but not computer produced inkjet (Giclee) prints.
