This Store Is One That Artists Will Soon Call Their Dream Home
What Makes It Awesome
The Art Materials isn't a store, it's a treasure chest for all artists - passionate, professional, amateurs and hobbyists. Students and teachers can also find their customised kingdom of art supplies here. Within a very comforting, nice and convenient space, they have an exhibition of close to 2000 products ranging from INR 1 to INR 18,000 at the max. The very simplistic nature and appearance of the store will have you mesmerised and drowned in an artistic fantasy of your own. They have an exhaustive product range that deals in both local and international brands - Camlin, Apsara, Khyati, Classmate, Chitrapat, Sakura, Mungyo, Faber Castell, Derwent, Staedtler, Campap, Canson, Fabriano, touch, to name a few. Keeping in mind the student and professional ratio, they have all the requirements that one would need without having to hunt for supplies anywhere else. Also, the gentleman owning this 15-year-old store will also give you enough guidance on whether the product you choose will be useful to you at the stage you are learning or practicing art. A thorough art counsellor more than a store manager he is. The best part about this place is that they're also opened on Sundays from 10am to 1:30pm. While on weekdays, they have a fixed time wherein they operate from 9:30am to 6:30pm. They've flexible payment options to that suit all pockets - via debit card, credit card, PayTm, and of course cash. It doesn't stop there - they also offer free home delivery to those who find commuting the distance time-consuming. I have thoroughly been blessed to have this art store serve my needs right through my working years with art and the undying passion is strongly supported by The Art Materials - Bangalore.
What Could Be Better?
Since it's located in a residential area chances to find a parking spot is often quite challenging.
What's My Pro Tip?
You could use public transportation or if in case you're commuting by car, it's better to park your vehicle in one of the previous lines, a few blocks away!
The best part is that they provide a free home delivery service anywhere in Bangalore.
