Try Before You Buy
Ever wish you could sample new art supplies before you commit to purchasing? On weekends, we set up our popular “Try Me Table” with different tools, supplies, and themes each week. Whether you want to test out a new set of art pens for coloring or a certain type of paint for printmaking, our free demos let you get hands-on and work with our products to see if they’re right for you. You can also pick up a new skill and get to know our workshop teachers, as our demos are often run by our creative instructors.
Jerry’s Artarama is always looking for ways to make shopping for art supplies in Raleigh fun. Artist workshops and free demos are a great way to get to know our staff and chat with other like-minded artists in the Research Triangle area. You can also bring your work to our frame shop to discuss the finishing touches for hanging and display. Whether you’re here for Raleigh custom framing or to load up on supplies, you’ll feel a part of our community of artists when you join in the fun during our special events.
