A HUGE thank you to Jon of Ellis Cabinets! We now have SO much more room for our canvases and wood panels! We’ve also reorganized and revamped to allow for more space, and we have a new display that will hold up to 48″x72″ canvases – which have been ordered and we expect to see them next week! Stop by to see the changes and let us know how much you love it! And just a reminder – because we negotiated a better price with our vendor, our wood panels are now 30% less! Woo-hoo!

Did you know that you can buy art & support SLO Food Bank at the same time?

Local photographer, Dave Coronel, is dedicated to filling plates through his artwork. ALL proceeds from sales of his art go to SLO Food Bank. Dave’s aid has provided 6,125 meals so far! Come check out his work and support a great cause.

Fall Class Kits Available!

While many have been enjoying the lazy days of summer, our staff has been hard at work putting together class kits for the Fall! If you’re taking a class at either Cal Poly or Cuesta in architecture or art, chances are we have a kit for you – and at a great price! Cuesta kits have been assembled and most are available for purchase online. They may be picked up at Art Central. If you don’t see your kit in our online store, please just give us a call!

Cuesta kits: ART220, ART221, ART223, ART230 and ARCH221.

We are now starting to build Cal Poly kits for the following classes: ARCH131, LA170, ART209, ART102, ART101-Pines

Upcoming Workshops and Classes

Please remember that we have a small parking lot. If you are attending one of our demonstrations or workshops, and it is not a physical hardship for you, please park on one of the nearby side streets. We appreciate your consideration.
