Where to find art supplies in Riyadh

find art supplies in Riyadh - Thoughts and notes-22

Being an art and crafts lover, I can tell you about my two favorite places in Riyadh: Jarir Bookstore and AlChark Store. I can spend hours discovering new materials and get inspirations in those two stores.

I think that these two stores complete each other, whatever you can’t find in Jarir, you’ll find in AlChark and vice versa!

AlChark Store doesn’t have books or electronics but it has a range of art supplies and tools. It is not as famous and tidy as Jarir Bookstore but you will find a lot of things there! Here’s a list of the supplies you can find:

  • Office supplies
  • School supplies
  • Art & Crafts supplies such as paintings for silk, fabric, porcelain, glass, acrylic colors, oil colors, gouache, mosaics, many kinds of brushes, accessories and tools, best brands of pens and markers,   different sizes and forms of canvas,  calligraphy and lettering sets, all kinds and colors of papers, pottery crafts, decoupage accessories, stencils, etc…
  • Coloring books for adults
  • Many other tools for crafting such as lanterns, accessories for decoration and events, picks for food bites, gifts bags, beads, knitting tools, white t-shirts, sewing tools, etc…

They may have some cheap brands, I highly recommend to buy international well-known brands for better quality. they may be more expensive but it will last longer and you will always see the difference.
