Portraits on the Green

Tuesdays at 1pm

Watch as Festival of Arts exhibitors paint, sculpt or photograph live models on the Festival’s Concert Stage. This series will focus on how an artists’ interpretation of the same subject matter can vary based on their own unique style and perspectives. Patrons are invited to observe the artists at work for an up-close look at their creative process.

Artist Demos

Throughout the day, enjoy art demonstrations by Festival exhibitors. Meet artists, ask questions, and watch as masterpieces are created right before your eyes.

Festival visitors can watch artists work in a variety of mediums including oils and watercolors, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, mixed media and more.


In addition to the Juried Fine Art Show, the Festival of Arts also hosts special exhibits on its grounds during the summer season.

Selected by art authorities from thousands of submissions representing schools throughout Orange County, works by over 300 students (PK-12) are on display in the Junior Art Gallery.
