About Us

The Drawing Room is a Christchurch owned and operated art supplies store, providing a comprehensive range of products and workshops to the local art community for over 25 years.

Our team are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. More importantly, we have a real passion for all things art related. We are here to help artists to find the right mix of products for the goals they wish to achieve no matter if they are professionals, hobbyists, students, or just starting out.

We stock an extensive range of products from paints and pastels, to canvas and craft supplies- we have it all! Both in-store and online, you can find products from leading international brands such as Winsor & Newton, Liquitex, Fabriano, Daniel Smith, and Jacquard (and many more!). Our range is ever-expanding and we love to hear suggestions of new products to stock.

We also run a wide variety of fun and exciting workshops in store with talented local and international tutors. You can check these out on our workshops page or follow us on social media for updates. We are continually adding new classes so keep checking back to see what's coming up, there really is something for everybody!

Community and creativity are at the heart of everything we do. We would not exist without our loyal customers and we are excited to finally have this platform to share our products and service with the rest of New Zealand.

Whether you are an absolute novice or a professional artist we have what you are searching for and look forward to helping you fulfil your creative needs!
