With much thought, conversation and ultimately demand, JB Arts has remained in operation. We have been offering curbside pick-up/ local delivery art supply service.
At first, we knew that the “art-school” side of our business was never considered an “essential service” so we started offering art kits! We NEVER expected such a huge response! (Honestly, I thought I’d be using this time to tidy the store from top to bottom or actually get time to do art).
We have sold-out most of our stock in one week with orders still coming in! Luckily, for the moment, our major supplier is still in operation and we placed a large order of materials to make into custom kits. The order should be here by the end of the week.
How it works (so far): A client says which types of art they wish to try (or who they’re buying for) and gives us a budget to work within. From there we assemble a kit of supplies that work well together; get your approval; receive an e-transfer; and package it up. We work out the delivery details and you should have your kit the next day!
Over 100 orders have gone out so far. We are so glad we continue to serve you. Next to come is more YouTube tutorials that directly relate to the kits and web classes.
Some of the most popular kit themes:
- Plaster gauze sculpture
- Air-dry paper clay
- Puppets: finger, rod, foam head
- Painting: watercolour, acrylic, acrylic mediums, ink, 3D Painting
- Drawing, oil, pastel, charcoal pencil
- Bees wax (rolled) candles
- General crafting supplies
- Tie-Dye kit
- Origami paper
- Postcards and blank cards with envelopes
