You can find great things in the most unlikely places -  paint and brushes in Casino & other supermarkets; canvasses, pastels and accoutrements in Carrefour; Castorama Antibes has a fab artists bit. Have never found "student prices" but, on the whole, I think the basics are certainly cheaper than UK.

Good luck and remember thaqt charcoal in French is fusain!

Bruno Charvin Arts

39, Rue Giofreddo, Nice ( near Place Massena) . Has expensive stuff and some great cheap gear out on the pavement - depends what you're looking for -  or La Sorbonne Art Supplies further down the street .

I get all my gear from Bruno Charvin and have done for years - tell him ( he speaks perfect English ) what your project is and he leads you in the right direction - cheaper than the Uk normally !
