Opened in November 2014, the Artist Shop is Kristen Ashley's dream that she never knew she had! What began as a place to grow her Etsy shop has evolved into a multifaceted creative hub located on the sunny second floor of an old building in Downtown Athens, Ga.
At the Artist Shop, we love to help artists find the tools they need to make their best work. That's why we don't carry any low-quality crap, and we fill our store with friendly, knowledgeable people who love to talk about materials and methods.
Don't know what you need? That's OK! Just come in and describe your project to us. We can help you find the tools to match the job. And once you're done, come back and see us: we can help you photograph your work, mat and frame it, and make prints for sharing or selling.
Or maybe you just want to be creative and play around? We have lots of easy-to-use starter sets and materials that are a joy to use. And don't forget to join us for one of our wonderful classes, camps, clubs, or workshops!
We are located at 127 N Jackson Street - Athens, GA 30601.
Look for us on the second floor, above the Pita Pit. Our entrance is to the left of Dynamite Clothing.
We are less than one block north of the UGA campus.
See the Jittery Joe's Coffee at the corner of Jackson and Broad Streets? You're just a few steps away!
