AEPA is a national cooperative of education purchasing professionals representing lead agencies in their respective states.

Currently, AEPA consists of 29 member states who craft contracts and bids competitively that are tailored to meet each state’s specific legal requirements. Awarded contracts are available statewide and facilitated by one cooperative member agency acting as the contract administrator. They will help you with any questions regarding the contract and provide any support documentation you need in order to purchase off the contract.

Please note that contracts are also available in non-member states through piggyback contract options. Download a complete member contact listing.

Supplying quality art materials since 1911, Blick Art Materials is the oldest and largest art supply specialist in the US. As an AEPA vendor partner, we are pleased to offer The Blick Advantage to its members:

  • Best Selection We know that being creative often requires materials that are difficult to find. That’s why Blick stocks more than 80,000 products in its warehouse, and offers nearly 15,000 factory-direct items and more than 8,000 Blick and Utrecht brand items.
  • Best Availability Our massive inventory means we should always have what you need in stock. If we don’t, that’s our fault, not yours. That’s why we do something virtually none of our competitors do — we NEVER cancel a backorder unless you ask us to, and when we receive your backordered item, we ship it out immediately — at NO additional cost to you.
  • Blick Ships Quick Most orders are processed within 24 hours. Blick’s reputation for industry-leading shipping times means you’ll get your order FAST!
  • Best Service & Knowledge We have real people available to answer your questions 24/7. Hundreds of Blick videos are also posted on DickBlick.com and YouTube.com, including video lesson plans for art educators and product demonstrations for artists.

Look to Blick for the following art supplies categories and more: Adhesives, airbrushing, art room furniture & lighting, books & Media, brushes, canvas, crafts, cutting tools, display & presentation, drawing materials, easels, framing, graphic arts, paints, papers & boards, printmaking, sculpture & ceramics, storage and textile arts.

Our experience tells us that the best way to educate students and prepare them for college and careers is to provide socially interactive, learner-centric environments where they can exchange and test ideas, work with others, and lead open-ended projects. We know it’s more than just content acquisition – it’s helping students develop perseverance, collaboration skills, and a growth mind-set.

This experience is rooted in and supported by research-based, future-relevant learning frameworks that form the foundation of our products and curriculum. We integrate the tenants of these frameworks into our development process to ensure we provide the resources schools need to help students develop the transferable skills required for success in life in an ever-changing world.
