Art Materials

The name says it all here. For years, Art Materials in south Minneapolis has been the spot for supplies, whether you’re a professional artist, are working on a home project, or are simply a creative dabbler. If you need supplies for your next gallery show, you’ll be happy to discover a bevy of high-quality paints, brushes, canvases, and more. If you’re getting into calligraphy, you’ve got your own aisle as well. If you have a framing project you’d like to take on yourself, the staff can help you work through their variety of mounting-board options. Pick out some sweet markers for your kids, and browse the adult coloring books for yourself. Whatever your muse is, you’ll have options to make your inspiration a reality here.
