The Art League gear rocks!

Our aprons keep clothes spotless.


Hoodie goodies!

Artists large and small will appreciate our durable aprons that keep clothes protected during the creative process; children’s Mini Maker aprons, $18; adult Join the Flock aprons, $22. Give the cool kids (and adults) on your list a fleece Art League hoodie, available in slate, red, teal and grey, and emblazoned with our paint splash logo; $30 for small, medium, large or extra-large.


Make a lasting gift impression with our new life-time guaranteed totes.

Eqpd to last forever.

Stylish and durable, our new eqpd (pronounced “equipped”) bags are made of the same resilient vinyl-coated polyester used in white water rafts, and guaranteed to last forever. The 17” LastBag ($50) has an adjustable shoulder strap and removable felt base. The WideTote ($125) has four side pockets with drainage holes (ideal for wet paintbrushes!), a large interior zip pocket, removable felt base, sturdy leather handles and an adjustable shoulder strap.


Spark some creativity among loved ones and friends with an Art League class or workshop.
