Testimonials From YELP & Google:



"I used to order from Artist & Craftsmen online until we moved literally down the street from their store. And now, instead of realizing I am out of a random color of dye, panicking, ordering online and having my whole system thrown out of whack by the delay...I simply walk down the street, head over to the dye aisle, grab one of the many, many colors in whatever size I want, go home and keep dyeing! Words cannot express how wonderful and convenient that is.

As for other art supplies, it seems like they have a large selection of a variety of different kinds of things - paints, canvases, children's stuff, whatever you want. And the staff seems always to be just around the corner, offering to help."  ~ Laura T



"I've been a customer of A&C since their location in an old house on Forest Ave. A warehouse of art supplies! Just about anything you need or want and at some of the best prices. Even internet shopping (then add shipping) doesn't get you much better deals.


LOVE the specials they have from time to time .. when they slash prices from overstock. Their emails are informative and fun.


I love just browsing! So much better than the mall. And they are great for school art class supplies as well as professional artist materials. If it's not in store, they can order almost anything. My art supply store."  ~ TerriLynn D



"I hardly know where to start - a world of everything you could possibly need to make art stacked high & low around every nook and cranny of this insanely fun store. The staff miraculously knows the answer to any stupid question I've yet come up with, recommends different products from what I've chosen if they think I'm wasting my money or time, and are always a pleasure whether I buy one paintbrush or blow my last paycheck on canvases. Consistently great deals on stuff I really need... can you guess i love this place? A & C rocks. BTW, I'm a 60 year old woman."  ~ Andrea S
