Attention Parents!

We anticipate this all being live on April 1, 2018.  The Fr. Stites Scholarship application deadline will be extended until April 15, 2018 to reflect this delay.

Not only can you find art supplies at The Depo, but they also offer gallery space, and a variety of art classes for all ages.


Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy will be having an exhibition featuring the exceptionally creative and imaginative work of our high school art students at the downtown location, which is located at 29 S. St. Clair Street, Toledo OH.  The exhibition which will be open for viewing Monday, February 5 - March 25.


In addition to the exhibition, Cardinal Stritch and The Art Supply Depo will be awarding a featured high school artist each quarter of the school year.  This student artist will exemplify what it means to think creatively, develop ideas, and demonstrate growth as an artist.  Each featured artist will be shared on The Art Supply Depo's social media accounts and receive a discount card for art supplies at The Depo.  We are very excited about this new partnership and look forward to recognizing our talented artists at Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy.
