portrait artists

The 15 minute portrait studio is a Contemporary twist on the traditional art of seaside portraitature.  Artists are invited to consider their own response to the Portrait, using any medium or style of their choice, from sketching, painting, sculpture, conceptual, digital etc.

Each session has a choice of 2 or three artists in residence, with Various guest artists who will join us throughout the year, each with their own style and materials. 

Open Times: Every Sunday, 12 - 4.30 pm, From April to October.

You can drop in and get your portrait done in under 15 minutes, and leave with original artwork for just £15. Check our events page for details of which artists are working at each session.

We can also bring our Portrait studio to your premises!  Great fun for Parties, Weddings and so on.  Get in touch for a quote for your function.
