Artists Materials Online is the online sales portal of The Art Centre, located in the Tamar Valley on the slopes of Kit Hill, which is part of a rugged promontory of land towards the easterly end of Bodmin Moor. We are located in East Cornwall just 17 miles from Plymouth, mid-way between Liskeard, Tavistock, Saltash and Launceston. The Art Centre was established in 1979 and now has the enviable reputation of having the largest art supplies showroom and factory premises in the South West with over 10,000 square feet. There is ample free parking, for the many vistors who drive to The Art Centre for art materials and picture frames, and we also offer a delivery service throughout Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset. Customers who live nearby and prefer to collect their orders personally, can order online so that their order is ready when they arrive, although we accept orders over the phone for those who prefer this method. The main purpose of this website was to expand our customer base throughout the UK and Western Europe, and an extra 1,500 new customers are now obtaining their art supplies from us. We have operated a policy of offering a full immediate refund or exchange on anything that is not 100% perfect.
