About Us

Who We Are

National Art Shop established business in 1970 because of a need to provide fine art materials and custom picture framing to local artists. Over the years, we have grown, but we are still locally owned and centrally located in mid-town Springfield, Missouri.
Our Sales Staff, with a combined experience of over 100 years, will give you friendly, personalized service in selecting products best suited for your needs. We encourage our staff to research and experiment with the products so when you shop at National Art Shop our staff can give you answers to your questions about our products and their uses. At National Art Shop, customers are not treated as numbers, but rather as individuals with unique projects, they wish to complete.
National Art Shop believes in giving back to the community we serve.

  • We help promote local shows, competitions, art classes, art fairs and anything else related to art at the local level, including music, theater, and sports. Click here to view any upcoming events in the local area.
  • We work with teachers, instructors, and professors in Springfield and the surrounding areas to ensure we have the art materials on hand they will need for their classes. We also put together kits for classes at a discounted rate to help offset the cost of education to students and their parents.
  • We often hear of opportunities which are available. Now potential clients, members, and or students can link directly from our website to yours through our online resource,
    Art Connection, to get the latest information straight from the source, you!

As a member of iAMart, a non-profit corporation formed in 1999 as an association for independent art materials retailers, we are able to keep abreast of current trends and products and offer not only these but all the art materials we carry at competitive prices. We love to demonstrate our products and their uses to various groups and organizations. Just give us a call to set up a time.

We are one of the largest custom framing facilities in the Mid-West. Please see our
Custom Framing page to find out more about our framing services.
