Supplies and Tools
Michael’s Art Supplies has a wide national network of brick and mortar stores as well as order online/pick up in store.
Dick Blick Art Supplies is my “go-to” online source for canvas, artists’ brushes, acrylics and Porcelaine paints. They also have a wide variety of fabric paints and dyes; clay and potters tools.
Discount School Supplies is a good source for basic tools and supplies that we use in our programs, i.e., scissors, glue-sticks, tape, as well as a great selection of craft supplies.
Nasco is another good source of supplies and kits for art and science projects.
