AA Classic Black Sketch Books!
Classic black, hard-cover or spiral-bound sketch books are an artist essential. These books feature acid-free, bright white, 75lb. paper, sourced from certified sustainable forests, ideal for sketching, drawing, and writing in any dry media.
Each hard-bound book contains 110 sheets (220 pages) and has a traditional binding, allowing the book to lie flat and for drawings to flow across both pages of the sketch book.
The double wire spiral-bound books have 80 sheets (160 pages) that are micro-perforated for easy removal.

Molskine Journals, Sketch, Watercolor, Grid, Reporter, Ruled, and more.
Art Department is fully stocked on these quality little journals.

NEOCOLOR I -- New at Art Department, these highly pigmented wax crayons are NOT your childs color crayons. Use them alone, as a resist, or draw over encaustics or dry cold wax for detail.
NEOCOLOR II -- A long time favorite, these versatile water-soluble crayons are luscious dry or wet. You can scrape into them dry or blend them together with a wet brush. Plus, they have a high lightfast rating to boot.
NEOPASTEL -- We have never seen such an array of color intensity in an oil pastel. The sticks contain permanent artist pigments and are supremely smooth and blendable.

GIFT CERTIFICATE
You can't go wrong with one of these. These beautiful handmade certificates can be for any denomination and used on one or multiple visits towards merchandise or classes with no expiration date.

DEPARTMENT OF SILLY
Bring a smile to someones face, remember us for stocking stuffers and Gag Gifts! Ton's of funny, insulting, crazy little things like the full size Inflatable Turkey, Bacon Bandages, Instant British Accent Spray, and of course the classic extending Freeloader Fork. Check it out!

NEW Winsor & Newton Water Colour Markers
These markers deliver precision and control and are compatible with all W & N watercolors and mediums. Their lightfast formulation offers optimal performance, transparency and brightness. Each twin-tip marker has a flexible brush tip on one end and a fine point tip on the other end. Once a drawing is made with markers, it can then be transformed into a watercolor painting by applying water with a brush. The sooner water is applied, the better the resulting washes will be. Colors can be mixed either on the paper or on a palette. All sets on sale, see our Holiday Gift Guide above.

40% OFF Princeton Oil & Acrylic Brushes
Artist's quality brushes come in a variety of shapes. Their stiff yet soft tapered tips lend more control than less expensive brushes. Treat yourself, you and your paintings deserve the best!

All 358 colors of Copic Sketch Markers are in stock at the new everyday sale price of $5.50 each! These markers have replaceable nibs and the ink is refillable. Click the picture to find out more about these awesome pens.




40% OFF WOOD CRADLED PANELS - Now Stocking New Sizes!
Made in Salem by American Easel, these panels are constructed of a smooth solid poplar wood 1 5/8 cradle (frame around the back) for strength and rigidity and a top quality birch wood face. The company uses locally grown and sustainable materials from Pacific Northwest mills that have a vested interest in preserving the forests for future generations. We love these!
Many of our customers are turning them over and using them as frames.
