Figure Drawing NYC--Summer Sketch Group Message Board › Art Stores in Manhattan
New York, NY
It's back-to-school season and the art stores are offering some great deals! Shop around.. Here are some of the bigger stores in the city:
Pearl Paint-- For years it was Mecca for art students. They have branches in other cities, too. Lately the stock here can be a little irregular, but they still have an amazing selection of brushes, pencils and paints.
308 Canal Street (212) 431-7932 (Open till 7pm, Sundays 6pm)
Utrecht Art Supplies-- Another art-student's favorite. A great place for paper and canvas, and known for the oil paints they manufacture. They've recently opened a number of new stores all with great selection. Seems like some stores have slightly different items than others.
237 West 23 st (212) 675-8699
21 East 13 (The New Flagship store) 212-924-4136
111 Fourth Ave, near 11 th street (The "old store" will be closing soon) (212) 777-5353
148 Lafayette Street Between Grand & Howard (212) 431-3864
DaVinci Artist Supply-- two locations to this store, one near SVA and the other near Parsons. Smaller stores, but still a really nice selection of materials, especially papers.
132 West 21st Street 212-871-0220
137 East 23rd Street 212 982-8607
Dick Blick-- An art megastore that' come to roost in NYC. Also a great selection of materials, especially paints and canvas. Because they're a national chain, they seem to get new and unusual items in, in addition to the expected items.
1-5 Bond Street (212) 533-2444
I'll add more to this list as time allows. If you have a favorite that's not here, add it!
