Artist Tip #9 – Where to find the best art supplies – a top five list

Where to find the best art supplies – a top five list

  • 1. DickBlick – one of the largest retailers of art supplies online I am learning. I have yet to buy from them but will be soon as I can’t find what I need locally.
  • 2. Your local flea market – great for found art objects, oddities and even inspiration
  • 3. Michael’s- Yikes! I let the cat out of the bag…
  • 4. Loomis Art Store – OH HOW I MISS YOU! This is where I shopped when I lived in Vancouver.
  • 5. Trade amongst your artist friends – I did a pen trade though mail with Shane Vorhaben (Illustrator Extraordinaire!) We each mailed pens to each other we could not buy where we lived.

    1. I have found the art store in Fredericton is pretty good. Called Endeavours, I like it for the pre-stretched canvas that you can get, plus they have a deal if you buy a bunch at once.

    2. I’ve been to Endevours Brian. I purchased my Moleskines from them. He’s got a great set-up.

      I know there is another art supply shop uptown (Saint John) but for the life of me can’t think of their name and have yet to go in. I’ve only just discovered that they even existed.
