Without the long hours stuck in traffic after work, some of us have a few extra hours to try out a new hobby or work on some passion projects. While many have ventured into cooking and baking, many are also turning to arts and crafts. For long-time artists, two months into quarantine may have caused their art materials to run out, while first-timers may not even have supplies to begin with. To fix that dilemma, these art supply stores have got you covered.
With branches in Quezon City, Rockwell and Serendra, Art Bar is catering to art needs not only by supplying art supplies, but also by holding masterclasses and selling art kits. To order, call and text the branch nearest you, pay via bank transfer and schedule pickup or book through delivery services.[READ: What can you do with art materials from Art Bar?]
