Anyone have art supplies for sale?
Or does anyone know where to buy art supplies either here on the island or in the City?

In belize City there are a couple of places, Angelus Press is one, and the other is the huge purple building that sells all kinds of stuff up the street from Belize Diesel, cannot remember the name right now.
What items are you looking for?

Stationary House is the next place I think you're talking about Dave.

If anyone wants to do a trip to Belize for art supplies at Angelus Press, I need to pick up canvas and paints anytime after the 3rd of June!
Safety in numbers and all that.

I'm looking for paints and canvas, drawing paper.........
There is also a large art supply store in Cancun near the central bus station.
A very rough canvas that is used by many artists can be bought at either Liberty store or Simon Quan in Belize City. Most if not all of the art supplies I've seen in stores in Belize has been student grade and not good quality at all. I've seen artists use regular latex house paint or chinalak for lack of anyting else. I have had the best success with purchasing supplies online on websites like dickblick.com and having it delivered to someone coming down.
