Today, Blick Art Materials remains the premier art supply source for professional artists, students, and teachers, and continues to be a family-owned business. Our annual Artist's and Educator's catalogs, more than 500 and 600 pages, respectively, are considered industry "bibles." We also offer hundreds of printable lesson plans and video workshops for teachers, and product videos for artists, to help them with their purchase decisions and techniques. Plus, we've expanded the reach of our retail stores to most major urban areas, and expect to add new locations every year. What was once a two-person company now employs hundreds of full-time Blick team members.
Size alone is not the measure of our success, however. Rather, it is the faithful adherence to our founding principles that guides us:
- Providing our customers with the best service, best selection, best price, and best quality in the industry
- Creating a working climate that calls forth the best in every employee
- Fully capitalizing on emerging technologies and opportunities for growth
- Supporting the arts and arts education in every way we can
