Central Art – New Year, New Beginnings!

central art supply logo

Happy New Year and welcome to Central Art, friend! If you’re reading this, it means you love making art and want to know what’s new and happening both in our store and throughout the art community of Southern Oregon. We thought we’d take a moment to fill you in on a few changes we’ve made to our newsletter emails, and what to expect when you check your inbox: 

  • Our all-new online newsletter will come direct to your inbox in email form several times a year, letting you know about local featured artists, classes and special events, as well as our in-store sales and coupons. Though it will have much similar content to our printed version, the look will be a bit different. 
  • Your contact information is 100% secure with us and is never sold to anyone. We’re a small, local business that wants to communicate directly with you, and are not interested in other companies needlessly cluttering up your mailbox. 
  • Watch this space for occasional special announcements, workshops or shows happening locally and in our NEWLY REMODELED classroom/gallery space, now dubbed “Creative Central”! 
  • Don’t have a printed coupon to take in with you when you shop? No problem! Our newsletter (both printed and online) will contain a Coupon Code whenever we have a new one in effect, like our January Coupon below: 

CANVAS20 

Save an extra 20% off  

All Stretched Canvas & Ampersand Panels 

(Good through 1/31/21) *Coupon can be used only once per customer. 

At Central Art we share your passion for art, and we’re excited to have you join us in helping keep our vibrant local art community connected! Have a question about a product, technique or event? Just send us an email, we’d love to hear from you. You can also share your creative journey with us on social media via Facebook, Instagram, and our NEW YouTube channel featuring art tutorials and product demos! 

What are we waiting for? Let’s get this new year ST-ARTED!


Holiday Gift Guide Sale – Central Art Supply

Happy holidays to our entire art community! It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is once again upon us, it has been quite the eventful and memorable year for everyone. We are approaching the holiday season with a lot of hope, cheer, and celebration.

Many of us have kicked off the festive mood early, because why not? It just seems like a great way to end a year – with the spirit of the holidays to help lift our hearts and to share goodness to those we love. Central Art is here to help you find the perfect creative gift for the artist in your life – or to give you something to put on your own wish list. 

Our Holiday Gift Guide Sale is going on now through December 31st, 2020! Whether your gifting/receiving plans are in-house, drive-by or virtual this year, Central Art will be here to provide you with helpful suggestions, stocking stuffer ideas, and any additional inspiration you require while selecting the perfect gifts for your creative crew! Not sure what to select for that special artist in your life? Gift cards are a perennial favorite, and we offer those too!

Staying home this year? No problem! Now you can shop our store online at centralartsupply.com! Just search “Holiday” and hundreds of products will come up. You can narrow your search for different departments as well. When you are finished shopping you can decide if you want to have it shipped, pick up in-store, pick up curbside, or have it delivered locally for orders over $30.  However, if you are crafting your holiday celebrations this year, we hope you stay healthy and stay inspired as you find new ways to bring the family together! Keep calm and Art On!  

Cheers from the entire Central Art family!

Central Art Store Update

 

During these uncertain times, one thing has become abundantly clear: creativity has no pause button! A tremendous increase in home-based projects means people need to re-stock their art supplies. We are so happy to see so many of you taking this time to explore your art and to share it!

 

We share your passion for art and have been busy filling curb-side and delivery orders, which help you continue to do art and encourage others to join in the process.

 

Starting the week of May the 4th, we are going to implement a “soft opening” of Central Art and along with that comes:

 

– New expanded store hours:

10am – 5pm Mon. – Fri., and

10am – 4pm Sat., CLOSED Sun.

Framing hours: Noon-5pm Mon.-Fri. and Noon-4pm Sat.

 

Phone Orders, Curbside Pick Up, and Deliveries are still available and encouraged.

 

– We will limit 4-6 customers in the store at a time. The National Retail Federation recommends a customer limit of 5 customers per 1,000 square feet of store space, excluding employees. We feel this is a little excessive and have reduced that number to focus on the health and safety of everyone.

 

– Upon entering the store you will need to sanitize your hands at our sanitizing station. Wearing of masks/ gloves is encouraged for safety, but not required.

 

6 feet Social Distancing Rule shall be employed at all times and we will have more markers to help in achieving that in the store.

 

We thank you for your continued support and encourage you to Keep Dreaming, Keep Imagining and Keep Creating!

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.

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.
