I know this store at first from my art teacher. She recommends this shop to me. She said that this shop is not as expensive as in SBCC bookstore. Yes, she is right. Moreover, as a student, we get 10 percent discount. Parking maybe a little bit hard in here but doesn't matter we can still walk. They provide art supply for everything from sketchbooks, acrylic, frame, easel. I care about the price and Art essential is a less expensive shop for artist supply.
