PlaZa Artist used to be Towson Art Supply but they were bought out a few years back. The new store is just as good if not better. They expanded into the next door space and now they carry more supplies. The service is very friendly and helpful. They offer buyer discount cards if you are a regular customer. They also have a website though the last time i looked it was still under construction. The location is great except that parking is tricky. You can always park in the mall lot kitty corner and then walk a block or so to the store.
