The PaintBox is an independent Art and Studio Supplies store situated in Hahndorf in the heart of the Adelaide Hills.

We offer a wide range of  materials and advice, at the best prices, and we do so ethically.The PaintBox prides itself on our helpful, honest advice and service along with competitive prices. Come and have a look!

Just because you shop at the best art shop, it doesn't mean you have to pay more, in fact you may well pay less. Your support is greatly appreciated, we want to look after you.  Check our Loyalty Cards out. 

We work with other artists, like-minded paint and pigment makers, from artisan paint makers to small ethnic communities that have created pigments for centuries. We don't support sweatshop production and where we can, we buy local. We promote and practice safe oil painting techniques.

A percentage of every purchase you make goes straight back into our arts community in the form of sponsorship. Check out our sponsored workshop classes and our work with the Artrooms at the Hahndorf Academy,  local community centres and with South Australian artists. In this way the PaintBox acts as a catalyst, bridging creative communities and inspiring positive change through the Arts.

We're not driven by profit but by improvement, believing one follows the other- we thrive to survive. We want to grow with the community and support those who support us. 

Above all, we're proud to be your local art shop and we appreciate your support.

You can find our shop and studio housed in a settler’s cottage at the top end of the Hahndorf Main Street. This makes us an ideal destination for a day out as well being a local supply store … drop in and say hello!
