nuts about artfulgathering


You don’t have to travel far to get away!

You really want to take art workshops with your favorite teachers, because you know how much fun you’re going to have once you dig in with messy fingers and all your favorite art materials scattered around your table! You know it would be such a blast to get away from the noise of every day life and break out of the box you feel you’re stuck in, and you want to try something new, something different and mind blowing! How do you make it happen? The distance might be too far away to travel to, you might want to put your travel dollars into art supplies, and maybe sometimes it’s just a lot more fun to create in the comfort of your own home studio where you can relax and enjoy creating on your own time schedule.


An artist’s own studio is a very comfortable place to create!

Artful Gathering is just the place to travel to for a home based, no fuss, no muss art retreat experience. We work all year round gathering talented people from around the globe preparing for our annual online summer event. This year marks our fourth online art retreat! We are also backed by years of experience in online artwork instruction, collaboration, organization and presentation. Our faculty creates their video workshops themselves, which means you are going to see the unscripted method of creating in a real working art studio! This is what we do, and we do it because we love creativity and learning just like you! When one Artful Gathering event concludes we are busy behind the scenes preparing for our next year’s event, when we begin all over again with brand new everything!

Is Artful Gathering for me?

To find out, see if any of these Artful Gathering benefits work for you:

✓ I want to learn from amazing artists but I don’t want the travel expenditure.

✓ I want to learn popular art techniques and processes from working artists and professionals.

✓ I want to learn from the artisan’s perspective and approach rather than a product marketing point of view.

✓ I want more than a few days to complete my artwork so that I am not rushed.

✓ I want the convenience of referring back to a step or process so that I can have some application time before sharing with my instructor  and classmates.

✓ I want to be able to ask my instructor questions.

✓ I want to have the opportunity to purchase the DVD version of the workshops I take.

✓ I want the flexibility to step in and out of class to suit my busy schedule.

✓ I want an online art retreat experience that comes from years of experience in online art workshop presentations.

Artful Gathering is an online art retreat! We are not a year round teaching site. The synergy involved in coordinating the schedules of busy working artists so they can present their classes for our event is truly a labor of love for us. And, Artful Gathering instructors rarely do online classes throughout the year! Many teach at live events and physical art retreats. Some are published, some own studios of their own where they create and teach. As authentic real world artists, instructors, and designers, what they teach comes from years of hands on experience, trial and error, practice and passion. They love what they do, and love sharing their classroom time with their students!

Don’t miss out on joining us for another wonderful year of creativity!
