Our Culture

Mission Statement

At Blick Art Materials, our family owners and dedicated staff support the Visual Art Community by providing the widest selection of art supplies at the lowest prices. With extraordinary service and integrity, we strive to provide artists, educators, students, and our employees with the tools, assistance, and training they need to grow, innovate, and reach their creative potential.

Commitment to our Customers

At Blick Art Materials we're determined to make the customer experience easy, enjoyable, and productive. Our customer satisfaction ratings - consistently the highest in the industry - are achieved by providing the largest, most comprehensive selection of products and the highest level of customer service possible. Equally important, we monitor our prices every single day to make sure they remain competitive.

Commitment to our Community

Blick believes that art education develops the human creativity necessary to solve the world's complex problems, enrich its culture and provide fulfillment for its inhabitants. Our entire organization supports awareness in the creative community at both the local and national level through a wide variety of initiatives. One of the ways Blick supports art education is Art Room Aid, a tool that links educators in need of supplies with advocates who want to help with direct contribution.
