The ART ECONOMY (ARTECON for short) is a cooperative of professional (artist) partners in both Australia and The Netherlands. Together we are focused on finding the best possible price-quality combinations for art supplies and related services. This means that we are constantly scanning the (global) market to do better and cheaper. By purchasing our (high-end) art supplies from (for example) Sennelier, Schmincke and Talens via more direct (generally cheaper) channels our costs are substantially lower. This means better prices for you.

ORDERING PROCESS: We order art supplies from manufacturers in Germany, Netherlands and France once a month. The cut-off date for products that are not in stock is the 20th of every month. From that date it takes an average of three weeks to receive the products in our Melbourne office. Once received they will be posted out to you in one or two business days.

PRODUCTS GENERALLY IN STOCK: The complete range of Rembrandt, Schmincke and Sennelier individual Soft Pastels as well as Amsterdam Acrylics (both Standard and Expert Series) with all Amsterdam mediums, modelling pastes and varnishes are generally directly available from stock. Supplies that are not in stock will be added to our monthly shipments from our logistics office in Europe (provided sufficient stock with manufacturer). Please check "Availability" with each product to avoid disappointments.

PRODUCTS NOT IN STOCK: Please contact us for pricing if you are interested in one or more products that is/are not yet listed on our website. We're able to deliver the complete range Sennelier, Schmincke and Talens products. Don't miss out on our informative quarterly newsletters and specials and subscribe now.
