I thought that a small, non-chain art supply store would likely have a limited selection and much higher prices. BOY WAS I WRONG! I was happily surprised when I visited the first time. The selection is incredible and the prices are comparable to (and in many cases lower than) the national chain art supply stores. The store is spacious and stocked with everything an artist could need or want. Regardless of your medium, they've got it. Golden brand paints, block printing, pottery, sculpting, wood and masonite boards, portfolios, and I could go on and on. Oh and listen up art teachers: they've got a huge selection of educational art supplies for the youngsters. I've shopped extensively at practically every Miami art supply store and this place has supplies that I've not seen at those other stores. As if the selection and prices weren't enough, the staff are also friendly and knowledgeable. You guys at the University of Miami School of Fine Arts, it is really worth the trip so get the word out about this wonderful new art supply store.
I highly recommend Easel Art to all my fellow friends and students. They have bass wood always in stock for my projects. Easel Art has friendly sales people that actually help you and walk you to the item you actually need. Parking is easy and they are open early 8:30 am and close at 6:30pm. They cut my foam core and mat boards for me and do it with a smile. The store looks small but once you get in the store it is very large. This is one of the few stores that actually has a large selection of drafting tables and all the old time drafting supplies that are hard to get. I asked how long they have been in business and I was told 31 years. Lastly when I pay at the end the owner always has a joke to tell me and always joking tells me thanks for shopping at Publix. I give Easel Art 5 stars for their inventory and 5 stars for their being helpful which you don't find too much anymore..
If you want the best customer service in Miami, shop at Easel Art Supply. They are friendly and helpful and a refreshing alternative to the big corporate stores. Huge selection and great prices on any supplies you need. Great custom framing. They can order anything you need and get it here really fast. I have been shopping here for over 25 years and they are the best store in Miami for art supplies.
