About Our Store
With the opening of Colors of Sequim, the thriving art community on the Olympic Peninsula finally has their own place to buy fine art materials. This 2,000 square foot store in the heart of downtown Sequim carries some of the most sought after lines in art materials such as Daniel Smith, M. Graham and Golden Acrylics as well as high quality, but moderately priced, lines for the student or beginning artist.
Whatever your passion, be it paints, pastels, colored pencils, markers, calligraphy, origami, or polymer clay, Colors of Sequim is the place to find the materials, tools and surfaces to bring your imagination to life. We also carry books and DVDs to inspire and instruct artists of all skill levels. There is even a children's area where the youngest artists can create a masterpiece while the grownups shop! An inviting lounge offers artists a place to enjoy coffee and a cookie, gather to exchange ideas, or perhaps to meet before attending one of the many art classes, workshops or demonstrations held in our in-store classroom area, which can be rented by those interested in teaching opportunities.
Owner Eileen Cummings wants you to know that this is your store and she welcomes your suggestions about what items you would like to see in inventory, as well as what classes you would you like Colors of Sequim to host. Whether you're already in Sequim or making a little journey from Port Angeles, Port Townsend, or Forks, we are happy to be your local, community-based source for any art supplies. So stop by to shop, sign up for a class or just to meet Eileen - you are always welcome at Colors of Sequim!
Featured Artist : September
I paint in both watercolor and/or pastel to capture the fascinating patterns of light on a person or an object. Here on the North Olympic Peninsula we are spoiled for choice of spectacular vistas of mountains, water, forests, fields, gardens, and wildlife. I am always drawn to sunlight and shadow on glass or metal objects and people’s faces too and so enjoy painting both still lifes and portraits.
I paint to revel in color and texture, for the satisfaction of solving a complex problem, and for the joy of creating an original work of art. Please see my step by step painting process at catherinemix.blogspot.com
For the past few years I have been teaching painting and drawing to adults at the Cutting Garden Art Center in Sequim, WA Please see www.cuttinggarden.com/classes for information about my classes.
