Hey, Art Teachers, Art People, Art Etc.'s:
Here are the repsonses that came in for your favorite Arts and Crafts supply catalogs. I think because school is out, I didn't get a very wide response, so I will try this again in the fall. But for now, here they are. I learned some new ones! Hope this comes in handy. If you have more, let me know and I will add them to my list and repost an expanded list.

I worked for this art supply store for several years while going to art school. They have a terrific selection of artist and student grade materials and a wonderful supply of oil paints, including Williamsburg and Old Holland (my personal favorites). The staff is really helpful if you call to order stuff because they are all artists and use the materials.
