Editor's Pick

When looking for art supplies, Nicolette’s list is our go-to!

Craft MNL

3 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

A studio that regularly hosts crafting workshops. Whether you want to build a new coffee table for yourself or adopt a new hobby, they’ll have something for you! I attended a Coptic Stitch Book-Binding workshop one sunny Sunday. ☀️

  • Unit 302, Pasay Road Condominium (Pamana-Languages Building), 926 Arnaiz Avenue (Pasay Road), Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines

UP College of Fine Arts

2 saves

Quezon City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Summer of 2014, I attended a Watercolour Painting workshop here. Learned so many things from my teacher, from painting techniques to the local art scene. It was a smaller class so all my questions and concerns were always readily addressed. The college regularly holds workshops for the public when classes aren’t in session, so check their website from time to time!

Art Nebula PH

2 saves

Las Pinas City, Philippines • Wishlist • 

I always chance upon Art Nebula at bazaars and fairs, but I’d like to visit their brick-and-mortar. These guys really know their stuff and will help you with recommendations. They cater to lots of artists, so they’ll even give you insights from their previous clients. Probably my fave art supply store! 😍

Deovir (SM Megamall)

1 save

Pasig City, Philippines • Memory • 

With multiple locations, SM Megamall’s Deovir is a little smaller than I expected. Well-stocked though! I still felt overwhelmed with all the choices. 😅 I ended up just buying a bottle of white ink and a roll of water-activated paper tape. Will definitely come back for more!

  • +63 2 570 9499
  • Level 5 Building A SM Megamall, EDSA corner J. Vargas Avenue, Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila, Philippines

Fully Booked (Greenbelt 5)

1 save

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Wide selection of art books, but also, art supplies. First place so far I’ve locally found Royal Talens’ Ecoline (concentrated liquid watercolours)! 💖

Pintô Art Museum

National Museum of Fine Arts

10 saves

Manila, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Displays the famed Spoliarium by Juan Luna. Favourite room is the one on Vicente Manansala’s International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) murals, particularly for his watercolour studies!

  • Padre Burgos Avenue, Ermita, Manila City, Metro Manila, Philippines

Metropolitan Museum of Manila

2 saves

Manila, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Comprehensive Philippine contemporary art collection! No pictures allowed whatsoever on the second floor, though (a bit sad but also a good way to get you to engage without a screen). First floor rotates pretty interesting temporary exhibits too.

  • +63 2 708 7828
  • BSP Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Malate, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines

Ginhawa Craft Studio - Asian Art Cafe

2 saves

Calamba, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Stationed at the edge of UPLB’s Freedom Park, Ginhawa Craft Studio is perfect for painting en plein air, especially during sunset! The green fields and its flurry of activity is in full view. The Studio also hosts workshops, so check in from time to time.

  • +63 947 992 1462
  • Pili Drive corner Animal Science Arch, University of the Philippines Los Baños, Los Baños, Laguna, Philippines
