Places to purchase your art supplies:
Blick: online by far the biggest and best selection of any art supplies you may dream of.
Michael’s: always check for online coupons, there is always at least a 40%off of one item one, which is great for those heftier purchases like clay, kits, or canvases! Also my go to place for framing, since they are always running great promos!
Amazon: carries my favorite mixable crayola blue tempera! And more! plus free shipping!
Home Depot: my favorite place for anything from wood, to nails, to tape, to latex paint.
