Hello Friends,

Welcome to Artisan’s website!

Our website is an extension and reflection of what Artisan is as a company. We began on Canyon Road in Santa Fe in 1975. The current four owners all began as retail clerks and  have worked together for over 20 years. We have two retail stores in Santa Fe and Albuquerque that have employees who are mostly artists dedicated to their art and helping you with yours. Our website is competitively priced with other internet art material sites from much larger companies. Please visit our stores in Santa Fe or Albuquerque, call or click, and allow us an opportunity to earn your business.

Online Shopping

Prices so low, they’re available online only. Our online store is also just a button away (red links on right). Please note that, like most online stores, Artisan online pricing is different than in-store pricing. Online you do all the work and the order is filled, so prices are less than in-store.  All purchases are shipped to you directly.

Kicking the SHIP out of the Internet!

Join us in kicking the SHIP out the internet! Now you can skip the shipping costs when you order online and choose to pick it up at our Santa Fe store! Email Jeff to get Kick-Started!

Budding Artist Update

Congratulations to the 
2014 Budding Artist Fellowship WINNERS!

Our Budding Artists – Katie Broyles & Jonah Hoffman – have received their first month’s credits, and are happily anticipating their summer of art! Our congratulations goes out to Katie & Jonah. Thank you to everyone who participated. Your patience was appreciated.

Thanks go out again to the EvansDukarich law firm for stepping up again this year and sponsoring another Budding Artist. Steve Evans is an acrylic artist in Phoenix and his partner Gary Dukarich is an avid supporter of the arts.

Thanks guys for realizing what a difference “keeping a student immersed in art supplies for a year” makes in the world. You two lawyers have such big hearts, you ruin the lawyer jokes for all of us.
