What’s Mont Marte’s top product?

According to Australian customer data, The Mont Marte Creative Art Station reviews are extremely positive, and it’s continually one of our most purchased products! It’s also our number 1 most wishlisted item on the AU site, popular because it’s a great studio solution for any space. Our research says the Creative Art Station is our top product, but our Tilting Studio Easel, SuperCell Paints and Acrylic Inks are crowd favourites across the globe as well.

How do I say Mont Marte?

We get this question all the time, and we get why. Mont is pretty straightforward, but how do you say ‘Marte’? Simply pronounce it ‘Mart’ – forget all about the ‘e’ (it’s silent). Hope that helps! Let us know how you’ve been saying it by tagging us on socials or emailing us 😊

Is Mont Marte good quality?

Huge range of Signature art products stacked on top of each other


We know that hearing a brand talk about how good they are is not why you’re here. So, let’s get into the truth behind our supplies! We’ve made 5 Product Levels that are a direct reflection of skill level and quality – the more advanced the skill level, the higher the quality.


Starting with Play, these products are durable and affordable, made for kids to start exploring art with. They’re not designed for professional use and are exactly as described – great for playing!


Discovery is next, and this level is all about affordability. It’s great for beginners and kids looking to expand their horizons and try out more art products without breaking the bank. We wouldn’t recommend this tier for professionals either, but it’s great for experimenting and getting comfy with creating.


Signature is a versatile range with loads of reliable products to explore. These products are a step up in quality and perform well for a range of techniques, styles, and purposes. Ideal for students, hobbyists, and crafting, this range includes a broader selection of supplies to try out.


Next is Premium, which is more focused on quality and creating unique artistic effects. This range has products specially made for texture, pouring, lettering, dimension, depth, and more so you develop your skillset to a higher level. It’s great for creators and art students familiar with the basics, looking to try new things and play with Premium supplies.


Lastly, our Artiste range is recommended and designed for professional artists. Only the highest quality materials are used for these supplies, so they offer precise control and effects. This level includes some select studio equipment like our Big Red Easel, as well as brushes and accessories to help elevate your art.

Is Mont Marte a good brand?

Mont Marte then and now premises


Well, we think so and we definitely try to be! Our Brand has humble beginnings and was kind of started by accident! Our founders Bob, Carol, and Cheyne Kent were originally running an import wholesale business, supplying variety stores with hardware and garden products. They discovered the art world in early 2003 when a shipment of garden stones was too heavy for a full container, so artist’s canvases were used to top up the shipment!


Rolling with the opportunity, Bob, Carol, and son Cheyne, set the products up to sell, only to see them fly off the shelves. Turns out, Australians (and soon to be the rest of the world) were keen to get creating! We’ve been working to supply everyday people with the tools they need to express themselves ever since. Check out our old HQ next to our current one in the pic above to see how far we’ve come.


Our values are really important to us. We have values that lead our Brand and values that guide our team. We want to provide creators with a Brand that authentically gives people of all skills and abilities A Fair Go, Fun, Imagination, and Inspiration.  To do that, our teams across the world work to keep these values in mind: Family, Courage, Dedicate, Team, and Innovate. We always try to do our best, uphold our values, and spread the good work that you can create!

What’s I Can Create Mont Marte?

That’s our motto! You might draw. Sketch. Scribble. You might paint. You might finger-paint. It could be portraits. Landscapes. Abstract. You might just splash paint about and see what happens.


You might sculpt. You might build. You might shape. You might craft. Doodle. Trace. You might think you’re an artist. And you might not think it’s art.


All we know is that you can create.


And we’re your biggest fan.

How can I get involved as a Mont Marte artist?

We run a free program to engage with artists and connect with creators online. You can sign up for Makers n Creators by filling out this form! The program has a tiered system for collabs and we’re proud to have loads of creators on board already. Get involved now!

Why do you have two sites?

Fair question! You may have been asked before to swap sites when browsing products online. We have a global site, montmarte.com, and an Australian site, montmarte.com.au. Australian visitors are better off looking at the AU site so that they can see the stockists local to them and check out the online shopping options.


For Global customers, we’re still working on creating a direct shopping option. Until then, you’ll want to browse goodies and more on the GLO site, so you can find stockists and more local to you!


Tip: We have a little button at the top of the site on the black toolbar where you can swap sites anytime.
