In the late 70’s our founders, Clyde and Rose Bush, started a marketing agency that specialized in creating custom professional artwork for businesses and organizations called Marketing Communications, Inc. Being a talented professional artist himself, Clyde realized there was a need in Waco, TX for access to quality artist materials & drafting supplies so he decided to expand the offerings of Marketing Communications to fill that need and M.C. Art Supplies was born!

This new retail store quickly became a favorite of the local universities & institutions because of the outstanding service the Bush family provided to faculty and students by offering class kits as a convenient solution for back to school time.

After many years of happily serving professors, students, and locals alike they decided to retire and sold their pride and joy, MC Art Supplies, to Waco natives Aaron & Jessica Williams back in May of 2017. Under new ownership, Aaron & Jess have continued the legacy that the Bush family left behind and have also expanded on the offerings of MC Art Supplies.

We are so honored to happy to serve our artists and makers today with our sidekick, Sienna the store cat! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting small local business!
