  Aboveground Art Supplies
by MissAntarctica2002

Aboveground has the best prices and selection of art supplies in the city, by far. No matter what medium you work in, Aboveground is likely to have everything you need.

It is located adjacent to the Ontario College of Art and Design. It used to be across the street in The Village By The Grange, but most of the retail space was converted to condos a couple of years ago. Aboveground worked with the City of Toronto to refurbish its current location, a historic house that had been condemned and slated for demolition.

If memory serves me, I believe they also give a discount if you show an ISIC card.

What to pay: A wide range, but practically everything is a bargain at Aboveground.

Address: 74 McCaul Street (McCaul & Queen W)
Directions: Next to Ontario College of Art and Design and down the street from the Art Gallery of Ontario.

They also sell to the public from their warehouse which is a 2 Pape Ave.
