Art supplies help!

I am interested in chinese brush and watercolour painting and craft and I was wondering if anyone can tell me where I can go to get painting/art/craft supplies. Appreciate your help.

Try YoungOnes stationers on Burma Road. They're on two floors but what you're looking for is probably over on the right hand side on the ground floor. Interesting stuff on the top floor however so do go up there.

Thank you very much, I shall look up for the address. I will be staying at Noordin Mews in Lebuh Noordin - would you know how far between this two places?

You can walk there. Walk down Burma Road from the Komtar end and it's on the right just past the Chinese temple. Or ask any taxi driver - they'll know it as YoungOnes has been there for years.

Another place you might want to go to, that I've heard about, is Nanyang Art & Graphic store along Carvarnon Street. I haven't been there myself so can't guarantee it's still there or its opening times, but it won't be that far from where you're staying. I believe that there may be another few shops nearby.
