Local art shop closed down

Calder Graphics closed down this week.

An old-fashioned art shop which catered for the general, but aimed a lot at the local student population. Okay, I didn’t particularly like that they only stocked a couple of sketchbook brands, but it was always useful for popping in to pick up some fresh pens and watercolours.

Mind you, I suppose I can’t grumble too much as I have pretty much migrated towards the internet for buying materials now. It’s nice to browse , though isn’t it? But that’s always tricky with art materials; a tube of paint in a shop pretty much looks like a tube of paint in a catalogue.

70% discount off marked prices meant I was able to pick up a good bunch of Acrylic paints – just picking up colours I liked the look of, and a couple of sets of Kuretake water pens.
