You're not too late!

InkTober is here!  AND it isn't too late to start!  Get practice in drawing through the fun and inspirational international InkTober Project. October is also National Arts & Humanities Month, and you can celebrate by doing their Art Challenge too (see below)!

We've pulled together more great FREE at home activities (InkTober & National Art & Humanities Month Art Challenges, Virtual Workshops, etc...) for you to follow along listed below. 

If you need materials for these projects, your own or others, always feel free to stop by the shop, make an appointment or give us a call.

BeauxArts Fine Art Materials is here to help you use the power of art - as always.  The Arts are more important than ever to explore.  I'd like to encourage you to take a few minutes a day to be creative with whatever sparks YOU. Even the simple things.

Wishing you, your family, neighbors and friends all the best!!!  Below are some fun creative opportunities for you!

Oil Color Bonus Buys!
40% OFF & Buy 3, Get 1 Free*

In the tradition of the masters, M. Graham artists’ oil color is made with pure walnut oil for its brilliance, clarity, texture, and resistance to fading and yellowing. Working in small batches, they craft oil colors true to the roots of Renaissance painting: delicately free-flowing, solvent-free, and with no fillers or additives. With the exceptionally high pigment loads in M. Graham artists’ oil colors, your work will naturally feel more alive and vibrant, imbued with rich, lustrous color for years to come. AND LOCALLY MADE IN OREGON!  *While Supplies Last & Free Tubes Available at Check Out
