General Admission Fee→
General admission to each annual Artful Gathering Online Retreat event is $5. Your admission fee includes entrance to the Artful Gathering online event. With general admission, you can participate in all of our sponsor related activities and contests, and you will be included in all our retreat news and information.
Artful Gathering online video workshop tuition ranges in price depending on several factors, which include availability of the instructor, depth of the workshop, and content. Typical rates are from $45 to $150. Our workshop descriptions include the general details of the class outline, and a general materials and supply list. More in-depth supply lists are often provided inside the workshop classroom with helpful links to online supply stores that may carry the harder to find items. Supplies and kits are not included in the tuition.
While a physical art retreat workshop may last a day or two, an Artful Gathering workshop allows for SIX whole weeks with your workshop materials and your instructor. During these six weeks you can go at your own pace, interact with your retreat mates, and you can ask your instructors questions. All video content and materials are accessible on the first day of class. Videos are not downloable . Our classes conclude after six weeks, and our event closes on August 26.
Workshop Video Duration→
The minimum duration for our classes is 90 minutes of complete video time and up to 3 hours. In some cases, video duration may be as long as 6 hours. Much depends on the instructor’s teaching style and the depth of the workshop. (please read workshop descriptions for details).
The Dvd version of the online class(s) you are taking will be available to you for purchase, and sold separately as an add on to your online class. The Dvd version of your workshop is not intended to replace the experience of taking an online video workshop with your instructor in a classroom setting. Because we do recognize that many students would like the option to also purchase the Dvd version of the online video version, we make every effort to deliver this option, and at a big savings to the participating students. Dvd releases to the general public (those who are not taking the online version) are not available for at least six months after the event concludes, at which time they will retail at full price. Participating student add on prices start $30 for a single dvd.
As a convenience, some instructors will offer kits which can be purchased at an extra cost and while supplies last. Every class comes with a full and detailed materials list.
To get the most out of your online class, we encourage you to use the classroom features to post photos of your work. This gives your instructor an opportunity to see your progress, and to make comments or suggestions. Of course you do not have to partake in class discussions, but you are very welcome to!
Your instructor has created their workshop presentation with you in mind. If you need help with a particular concept or step, feel free to ask questions and to post your photos inside your classroom. Instructors will typically respond within a 24 hour period, and with time zones being different, you might receive responses at different hours. Be sure to check your e-mail and your spam/junk folders for correspondences from your classroom. We don’t want you to miss our newsletters, or messages from classmates and your instructor.
