Where to buy art supplies in bulk online ? Answered

I am an art teacher and planning to start summer art workshops. I want to buy art supplies in bulk for my students. I have heard that ASWexpress - http://www.aswexpress.com/ is the best place online to get all premium supplies at best price. Has any one joined them ? Any suggestions would be of great help.


I don't mean to double-post, but I forgot to mention that an art teacher relative of mine is who I heard about DickBlick from. Here is a link: http://www.dickblick.com/

I recommend Blick art. I use them all the time. Their prices are unbeatable and their customer service is incredible.

Try http://www.countrybaskets.co.uk they have a ton of stuff on there

If you are a teacher, maybe try the educational discounts as the big craft store chains like Michael's, AC Moore, or JoAnn Fabrics. Blick is for higher end art supplies. Maybe get a hold of the local art colleges and see what they do. The annual membership fee to the art wholesale club thing may be better spent on getting stuff at similar savings elsewhere. What kind of art supplies did you need? There may be alternatives or non-crafty stores that will have the materials you need more cheaply. Good luck.
