A little bit about us:

ARTiculations Art Supply is an independent art supply shop that was established in 2011 in the Junction neighbourhood of Toronto.

Our mission is to create meaningful connections between artists, their materials, and the creative process. In all aspects of what we do, we aim to foster a culture of care for creatives by acting as a support for one’s artistic practice.

ARTiculations is owned and operated by me, Heather Phillips, and my small (but mighty!) amazing team of ingenious, multi-tasking, energetic people who hold down the sales floor and provide top-notch customer service to each and every client in person, by phone, email or web order. My husband and 3yr old daughter also make regular appearances to lend a hand as needed. Basically, we all do a little bit of everything around here to make ARTiculations what it is.

This position has opened because one of our lovely long time team members is moving on to explore new horizons and has transitioned into an offsite occasional role.
