A full spectrum art supply store with top quality fine arts materials, school & office supplies, gifts, cards, and more.
Art and Soul has been an integrated part of Sebastopol for many years. They have supplies for almost every facet of art and for every age and experience level. What makes them a five star is the amount and variety of inventory but even more so the quality of help. Every time I have visited them knowing somewhat of what I need but not sure of what it is their experienced help have a great way of distilling it all down and presenting a solution. Their new store is very well laid out and inviting where you can have the space to discover new tools and crafts to explore. They are very sensitive to be being Covid safe and at the same time able to support their customers needs.
This store has it all! I love that the people working at this store are actually artists and know what they are talking about! The quality of items is great. You can get different levels of quality and price depending on your needs -for example, as an children’s art teacher, I don’t need the highest quality paints – but I also don’t want to use junk. But if you are a serious artist, they have the nice stuff. I always order my construction paper in bulk from them because the quality is so much better than other places. They also always have really nice watercolor paper on sale. If you ever have a question about an art or craft project you can go and ask someone who works there and they can give you actual expert advice.
I really appreciate the time they have taken during this pandemic to walk the isles, tell me what they have with advice about quality and price, and pack it all up so I can swing by for curbside (parking lot) pickup. This is an important business to keep open, as we don’t want to have to drive to Santa Rosa and go to a big corporation for our art supplies. Please support them.
Love this new location. Good selection of everything you’ll need for your art and crafts projects. Frames, supplies….everything art related.
Framing department is awesome with the capacity for large scale framing needs. Bryan is a terrific framer. Simply won’t go anywhere else. Plus ample parking in the back lot.
Walking into art & soul literally warmed my soul! Their extensive supplies are unbeatable! I could have spent hours marveling at all the creative ideas, supplies, paints, oils, artwork, chalk, chalkboards, art kits of all kinds…I really could go on and on. They have just about every type of paper you could imagine! I needed kite paper today for lanterns and within minutes I was helped with kindness, courtesy, wisdom, knowledge, brilliance and smiles. :)) I am extremely thankful for the help from botn Brian and Margaret! Thank you! They helped me pick out the perfect colors and even showed me which kind was on sale! :)) This is a local business that takes our wonderful “go local” card and with more smiles. :))
I encourage you to support your local community, by shopping locally! It really makes a difference!
Thank you Art & Soul! This is where I will be purchasing all my families and my son’s school art supplies from now on. 🙂
