Blaines has been in Spenard, Alaska since 1953. Anchorage has since claimed this area of town, but those of us who work and live here still like to think of ourselves as Spenardians. We have always been a family-owned business, catering to the needs of our customers and supporting our community. We are here to promote the arts in our community, offer reasonable prices, and fabulous customer service.
Part of our efforts to facilitate the joy of art exploration, creation, and discovery includes offering a variety of classes by local and visiting instructors, for all ages and abilities. We offer both online and in-person courses. We also accept homeschool orders for supplies and classes. Our class schedules are always up to date here on our website. And while we don’t have an online store, we can sign students up over the phone, and even mail orders to anywhere in the United States.
We look forward to getting to know you, sharing your art adventures, and cheering you on along the way. Come say hi!
