Edmonton's Local One-Stop Art Shop
The Paint Spot is a hidden gem for artists of all kinds. Tucked away just off Whyte Avenue, this shop has been created for artists by artists, established in 1985.
Here you can find an assortment of high-quality art supplies. However, their service doesn't stop just at products, in addition to this they provide informative and inspirational art classes, curated by their knowledgeable staff. You can also discover tutorials from The Paint Spot on their website in their "advice library" and on Youtube.
While they offer an abundance of products and resources online, there is nothing quite like being inside the store, surrounded by unique and creative tools that perhaps you never thought to use before. There is truly something for everyone; from novice to expert and all else in between.
On top of their already very reasonable prices, The Paint Spot also offers a 20% discount to teachers and schools. In the spirit of supporting schools, the store also openly welcomes field trips where kids can experience the ongoing exhibitions featured within The Paint Spot's art galleries; the Naess Gallery, Vertical Space, and Artisan Nook. Additional demonstrations and workshops can also be included in this tour.
In steps to plan ahead for future exhibitions going into 2020, The Paint Spot is openly welcoming artist submissions for emerging artists interested in featuring their work in the available gallery spaces.
For further details on submissions or other inquiries, please contact the store here or by visiting their location at 10032 81 Ave NW.
