Art Supplies

Order online for home delivery!
PRIOR TO THE PANDEMIC, ActonArt always included all needed art supplies in our tuition. We believe that high quality supplies improve student results and having everyone use the same supplies means students can achieve results comparable to our demonstrations.

Currently, for online classes, we are providing students with supply lists so they may acquire everything needed on their own. We have created a linked purchase list for Dick Blick Art Materials, a company we consider to be a reliable and good value merchant. You are also welcome to order supplies from any other source that you prefer. We recommend the products we've listed as very good quality for the price. ActonArt does not receive any commission from Blick or any other suppliers. Our online class tuition has been reduced accordingly to compensate for the supply costs normally allocated for each class.

THE SUPPLY LISTS BELOW are arranged by named classes. Simply look for your class name and purchase any supplies that you may need. You may substitute any supplies that feel are appropriate.

Optional supplies are not required to complete any projects during the trimester. They are listed for anyone who wishes to purchase additional supplies.

If you already have supplies that are comparable to what is listed below, it is not necessary that you acquire anything new.
