The aisles at Napa Valley Art Supplies are as colorful as the paintings their materials help to create. Tubes of oil, acrylic, and watercolor paints, from brands such as Prismacolor and Liquitex, await to top an arsenal of Winsor & Newton brushes made to suit varying types of paint, desired brushstrokes, or canvas tickle-thresholds. Beads, jewelry, water-soluble crayons, and frames help inspire other artistic endeavors, while markers and eco-friendly Plutonium and Liquitex spray paints fuel onsite expression during BYOB events, which—in the past—have included a Spray Can Slam with local writers and street artists.
