[Review] Art Shops in Kuwait - First Shop


If you know me by now, I am sure you know I am interested in Art and somehow considered as an art-holic or an art freak! And since I always seek profession and creating a great piece of art, unfortunately I am not able to find the art tools I am looking for here in Kuwait. So I always end up buying everything like mechanical pencils, coloured pencils, graphite pencils, blenders, erasers and even the small erasers of the mechanical pencils ONLINE. And I know how difficult for all the artists around to find such products / art supplies here in Kuwait. And even if we do, it's very expensive.

So, I have started visiting the most well known art shops and kept on asking for products like Pan Pastels, Graphite Pencils, Blenders and so; and guess what, they have started bringing the same to their shops and this is making me extremely happy and would love to share the same with you.

As I have promised you earlier, I am going to share everything I know about the art shops and the tools they have and will have in future. So I have decided today to visit Arts Centre Central which is located in Al Murgab, Block 9, Opposite Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Al Hajiri Bulding, Block 12, Shop 11. You may contact them on Telephone number 22409288. OR follow them on Instagram to know what's new @ArtsCenter

They have Copic markers "with all their types like Copic, Sketch, Ciao, Wide, inking pens, Inks, Paper, Marker Storage, and Accessories," acrylics with all the colours, canvas, stands, oil colours, pastel colours and much more. 

So many orders are being prepared and yet to come like pan pastels, prismacolor pencils / markers, graphite pencils, Copic Plastic Color Chips, Copic Sketch Pads and Copic Graphic Pens. 


And what is even better, the person in charge who is working there is aware of every single type / brand of his products. Just give a name and he will tell you the brand "Mashallah," overall their staff are so friendly and amazing. They are working currently on expanding their shop to have two floors, and might be moved to a better place later on. But for a fact, it's a place not to miss! And you really need to check it out.

Hope this post might help you find what you are looking for. Stay tuned for the other shops I am visiting soon.

Do not hesitate to ask for anything, I might be able to assist you :)

  8. I'm really interested in art and I would like to expand my talent. I also live in Kuwait and I can really relate to your problem of not being able to find the appropriate art materials. After reading this, I have to THANK YOU, but I can't seem to find the shop. If you could provide some additional details that would be great. And thank you again.
