Shopping for art supplies in Paris



Two main stores come to mind when searching for quality art supplies in Paris: "Passage Clouté" and "Graphigro".

Graphigro has a discount for art students and a particularly large selection of material especially when it comes to illustrative articles (excellent markers and pens). It is recommended that you visit the Graphigro on boulevard Voltaire (adress below) as it is larger and more heavily stocked. On the other hand, Passage Clouté offers just about the same articles for cheaper although they do not offer a student discount. Canvases, paper, POSCAs, paintbrushes, art bags...etc are best bought there. They're also a little slower when it comes to stocking up, but you still save a substantial amount of pennies if you're not a student or don't have a big shopping list.
