Central Art Coronavirus Update

Thank you for your outpouring of support and business these past few weeks.

Currently we are working to comply with the safe practices that have been put in place for the COVID-19 virus outbreak. In the wake of Governor Brown’s Stay at Home Order, we at Central Art have made some important adjustments to our hours of operation and our work schedule.

For now we are open only from for curbside pickup and delivery (free for orders $30 or more) 10am-3pm Monday through Saturday

You can call us during those hours at 541-773-1444 to place an order. You can also email us at [email protected] or message us on Facebook @centralartsupply to place an order.

We remain committed to serving our artist community where we share your passion for art. We hope that everyone stays safe, happy and most importantly healthy as we navigate these changes together.

Central Art COVID-19 Protective Measures in Place

We at Central Art are working hard to do our part with COVID-19 protective measures. We are closely monitoring the best practices suggested by the CDC and state and local governments, realizing that they are changing daily.

For now there are a few things you can count on from all of us at Central Art.

We are taking measures to frequently wash our hands and cleaning our high-touch surfaces. We are also taking a proactive measure by asking customers to use hand sanitizer or to wash their hands when they come into the store.

Currently we remain open for business at our regular store hours, which are Monday-Friday 9am-6pm and Saturday 10am-5pm. When you come in we will always welcome you and engage in your art endeavors, but we will also allow for social distancing.

Along with many other businesses, we are offering curbside pickup. You can call and order your favorite art supplies, then drive up to the store and we will bring your order out to your car.

However, we understand that many of you may not want to make the trip to Central Art, so we are offering free home delivery* for orders $30 and over. Call and place your order and we will do our best to deliver it to you within 24 hours. *Delivery available for the Rogue Valley area only.

To place an order or to assist you in any way, you can reach us via phone: 541-773-1444, email: [email protected], Facebook Messenger: @centralartsupply

We hope that everyone stays safe, happy, and most importantly healthy as we navigate these changes together. Thank you for your continued support of Central Art, where we share your passion for art.

Update from Silvia Trujillo

Although we need rain desperately, I have been taking advantage of the dry weather by doing lots of plein air work. Several students and I have discovered new places to paint, and have had lots of fun doing it! Consider joining us while the warm weather lasts. It’s really not that difficult, and it is a great way to loosen up if you’ve been feeling like your paintings seem kind of tight lately.
 The ongoing classes I’m offering (Wednesdays from 2–4pm) at Scrappy Craft are going well. There is a core group of artists who attend classes regularly, each working individually and coming up with some intriguing paintings. Plus, Scrappy Craft offers a discount to students who attend classes there. I must say, I’m super impressed with the extensive inventory of “top brand” art supplies; and all at comparable pricing to the big box stores! Come on over and check it out. I have room for more students in this space. It’s a large, well lit classroom – $30 drop-in, or 4 classes/ $100.
Since classes are ongoing, you may start at any time, and complete a 4 class series within a 6 week time frame. *We will not be meeting 11/27, 12/25, or 1/1
Best wishes to all,
Silvia
