Testimonials From YELP & Google:
"I'm not a serious artist, just someone who dabbles in ink/colored pencil/watercolor pencil drawing. But this store is great. The prices are good enough that it's actually a better deal there, than to order the same products online (I'm talking mainly about their pens/pencils/erasers, etc.). That's a pretty rare thing these days. And as the others have said, the staff are great. They're just real, down to earth people who do their best to be helpful, and coincidentally they really know their stuff. The store space itself is pretty cool, if a bit cramped - an old metal spiral staircase leads to a basement level where most of their paper/canvases are kept.
It's an enjoyable place all-around. If you need serious art supplies, there's no reason to go anywhere else in Madison. ~ Thomas J
"It's perfectly convenient to buy supplies at the MATC book-store but I prefer to get my supplies directly from A&C Supply. The staff is friendly and between the group of them someone will be able to steer you in the right direction if you need assistance or help with a decision, plus if they don't have what you are looking for they'll order it. It's all pretty standard retail pricing and though you can probably find them cheaper online you'd end up losing out on S&H. Even though I admit to taking advantage of the occasional sale from Michaels I take pride in shopping locally at A&C." ~ Richard L
"Artist & Craftsman Supply has it all! And if for some reason they don't have in stock what you need, they'll special-order it for you. It's jam-packed with so many cool supplies, so don't feel overwhelmed. The staff was really friendly and they also offer a student discount. Hurray!" ~ Stina H
