Art Supplies in Morocco
To view our own artist items for sale in central Agadir, please click here, thank you.
There are two art shops in Agadir that sell quality watercolour art supplies: L'Art Dali and Al Mouggar Livres.
Please note that during the Ramadan period each year the shops are generally open from 9am and during the lunchtime period and close around 4pm.
L'Art Dali sells student quality watercolour paints, (such as Pebeo, W&N Cotman) as well as a good choice of the excellent Faber-Castell Ulbrecht Dürer watercolour pencil sets. They also sell a range of good quality watercolour pads (Fabriano, W&N etc) ring bound pads and also have a range of palette knives, palettes, painting sets, Lefranc et Bourgeois glass paints and other items that may be of interest. They no longer stock Arches full sheets of 300gsm Rough watercolour paper (we bought most of it :-) The owner says that it was a slow mover and he won't be restocking this item.
However, they do stock Liquitex spray paints, inks and accessories.

Al Mouggar Livres is in the centre of Agadir. They do not stock artist quality watercolour paints, (only cheaper brands, such as Pebeo) but they have a Daler Rowney catalog and can place an order. They sell Maimeri Acrylico acrylic paint tubes and have a good range of Canson watercolour block and ring bound pads. They also have a range of palette knives, Pebeo painting sets and other items that may be of interest.

Art Supplies in Marrakesh, Morocco
If you are arriving in Marrakesh, or spending some time there, it may be well worth your while to stock up with art supplies as they generally hold a larger stock than art shop sales in Agadir. Librairie Chater is an excellent bookshop/art supplies shop in the Ville Nouvelle (Gueliz) and they sell good quality art supplies. I haven't been there in a while but seem to remember that they sell Sennelier watercolour paints. Please let us know which brands they sell if you visit their shop and find that they sell other quality watercolour brands. Thank you.
Avenue Mohammed V
(further up the street after the Hotel Renaissance)
Art Supplies in Rabat, Morocco
Go through the main medina entrance at the bottom end of Avenue Mohammed V and take the second turn on the left (after the big café with tables outside.) Walk down around 200 metres and you will see the entrance into the indoor market. It's the last cabin on the left hand side of the walkway.
Art Supplies in Tangier, Morocco
There is an art supply shop in Tangier in the street behind the Tangier Flandria hotel, just off Avenue Mohammed V, on the Rue Al Moutanabbi, opposite the Café La Colombe.
Please send us an email if you have further information about art supplies in Morocco, thank you.
