THE BRONX - The Artist & Craft supply store recently opened on White Plains Road in The Bronx.

Since its grand opening on May 18, the store has been the go-to place for artists in the borough.  It has a massive selection complete with two levels of everything from finger paints to pastels.  

"I'm happy to work with local families and craftsmen. They've been wanting us here for a while and we're here now to support what they need," says Shakira Castillo, manager of Artist & Craft.  

The Bronx's art community can now express their inner Picasso without having to go to Manhattan for popular supplies.  Artist & Craft is the largest art store in the borough and will soon offer classes to people from all ranges of skills.
