Art Supplies - an overview
Your choice of where to get your art supplies will depend, a large degree, on what you find most convenient. Do you prefer to walk into a shop, browse and handle the materials? Is it easier to order from the internet, and get art supplies delivered to your door?
Your local art shop
A local art shop is fantastic. There is nothing quite like being able to go into a well stocked art shop. You can browse and discover new products and have time to examine them carefully. More often than not, one of the members of staff will be a real fount of knowledge. You may know what you want to achieve, but be unsure which 'material' will be best.
Good art shops will stock a vast range of materials. Plus they often sell 'singles' of items such as pastels or neocolour II so you can choose the shades you require. When it comes to brushes and papers, being able to handle the product is very helpful.

High Street Chains
Depending on the product will partly determine if high street chains are of any help. I have found....
A great example of an online shop is One Stop Shopping Mall... this is really worth having a look at.
