Our Store(y)

Our mission is to create meaningful connections between artists, their materials, and the creative process.

As practicing artists, we understand the care and energy that goes into your work, and the difference it makes to have a knowledgeable community to support and celebrate that. The ARTiculations team aspires to be both helpful and accessible. Our approach to service means asking questions, listening, and learning about you, your work and your current materials. We can personally vouch for our unique selection of high-quality art materials and tools; hand-selected for value, and influenced by our discussions with you.

We want to help you find the best fit, not the most expensive product.We are proud of the lasting relationships we build with artists - in Toronto and beyond -  and are honoured to be trusted as their choice for materials.

We believe in the power of creativity and the joy of making art.

So, please, tell us all about your project – we want to hear about it.
