Being an artist in Calgary truly is wonderful! There are many resources, art groups, and ideas to support us as we create art. With that in mind, we thought we would share a list of local Calgary art stores. These art stores are all in different areas of the city so no matter where you live, there is probably at least one that is close by to you:
Mona Lisa Artists ( www.monalisa-artmat.com)
Kensington Art Supply ( www.kensingtonartsupply.com)
Sunnyside Art Supplies ( www.sunnysideartsupplies.com)
Swinton’s Art Supply ( www.swintonsart.com)
Inglewood Art Supplies ( www.inglewoodart.com)
Colours Artist Supplies ( www.artistssupplies.com)
Sketch Art Supplies ( www.sketchcalgary.ca)
Enjoy the experience of shopping for art supplies at a locally-owned art supply store! You will find lots of great advice, knowledge, and encouragement in each of these stores! If you visit one of the above stores for the first time after reading this post, please mention this blog post when letting others know how you found their store – it goes a long way in building a strong art community!

If you have never seen the Passion Play, it is a definite must! The location of the play is in the heart of the Canadian Badlands in Drumheller, AB.
It is an easy drive from Calgary to Drumheller along well-maintained highways and pretty views of rolling fields.
The Passion Play itself is spectacular! Because the stage is in between hills, the sound carries very well and the audience is able to hear the dialogue and narration of the actors. The costumes are amazing and the acting is very professional.
Seize an opportunity to go and see the Passion Play in the Canadian Badlands! It will be a highlight of your summer and a memory to last a lifetime! For more information, please visit http://canadianpassionplay.com/.
