Known for its low prices and thus much loved by impecunious artists and designers (there’s a discount for those with student cards), Cass Art stocks a stellar array of artistic materials in its outlets across the capital. Its flagship store in Islington, tucked just behind the Islington Green end of Essex Road, spans three large floors and sells everything from sketchbooks, Moleskine notebooks, sheet paper and brushes to easels, wooden mannequins, canvases and portfolios, in a browser-friendly setting. There are inks, markers, oils, acrylics, watercolours and pastels in every conceivable colour and a good crafts section downstairs.

Very good staff with a decent knowledge of art materials and its uses. If you need something for art, you can most often find it here.
As a fashion designer student I find Cass art the treasure trove to all things arty and they do the best prices too. Art will always be expensive but at least you can get relatively lower prices here.
