In the late 1970s 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.

In 2017, after many years of happily serving professors, students, and locals alike, they decided to retire. They sold their pride and joy, MC Art Supplies, to Waco natives Aaron & Jessica Williams. 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 and happy to serve our artists and makers today with our sidekick, Sienna, the store cat! We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for supporting small business and our local artist community.
