Testimonials From YELP & Google:
"They had a great selection of everything you'd want in an art store. I usually frequent Lyons in the LBC or the Art Supply Warehouse in Westminster and I was pleasantly surprised to see most of the stuff that my favorite art stores carry were stocked here. The associates behind the counter were very helpful and nice to everyone in the store. This location already has that friendly-neighborhood ethos going for it and I'd come here more often if I lived close by. There may or may not be cheaper art supply stores out there but great customer service is priceless. I hope this store thrives and sticks around!" ~ Rodge R.
"We find ourselves running to this store more and more for craft supplies. The staff are friendly, knowledgeably, and get excited about things like glow-in-the-dark Modge Podge. The shelves are well-stocked with serious art supplies and more childish stuff, but not so much that supplies will go stale. Drive a couple of blocks past (the other neighborhood art supply store) -you will be so happy you did." ~ Leslie F
"I live just a few blocks from the artist & craftsman supply, so upon it's opening my husband + i stopped in to just take a peek at our new neighbor. we found the employees to be extremely chipper + kind. they're a great balance between offering assistance + backing off and letting you stroll around. good layout. good variety of supplies. everything I, as a "art for fun" consumer would need! In addition to finer art supplies, they seem to have a good selection of crafty + kids materials. pipe cleaners, construction paper packs, + jigsaw puzzles kids can paint as a canvas then break apart as a puzzle. (so cute!) they also have notecard sets, like you'd find in a museum gift store, toys + trinkets for kids, postcards, etc. today i went in looking for a small, spiral bound notebook / sketchpad. they had a selection of sizes, paper type, binding types, sizes, etc. plenty for me to choose from! i was looking for one around 5.5 x 8.8". their prices ranged from $3 to $20 for one that size. for basics like plain canvases, sketch books, etc. they seem to have really, really great, low prices that would rival or beat any other art store (There is another artist supply store), a few blocks up la cienega, is slowly become more empty + depressing (as well as overpriced), i'm thrilled to have this shop open up. i can't imagine anyone having a bad customer service experience based off my two visits. recommended!" ~ Jessica F
"We are oh so lucky to have two great art supply stores in the neighborhood. I do love Pearl, but Artist and Craftsman employs real artists who know what they are talking about, can help you if you have questions, and are super nice. It reminds me of the store at my art school. They have everything and toys too! I highly recommend this shop--and now you can (finally) park in the lot behind the store. A great addition to the neighborhood." ~ Lucy B.
