  • Welcome to our Artful Gathering Summer Art Retreat! I am offering two portrait workshops, one in pastel and one in acrylic. They are designed for beginner through advanced so, if portraits are of interest to you, I would love to have you!

  • Whoa, we rolled into October and I nearly forgot about Halloween class with Joshua Werner. Signed up. I think I have to wait for an email to access class?

  • Hi Zinnia, Thank you for the link. I'll be purchasing mid-week. I'm excited to see you offering holiday classes. Good idea. Happy holidays to you....I love September through December.

  • Hi Darlene!

    Wishing you a great holiday season!


  • Hi Darlene!

    Great to hear from you!

    Here ya go!




  • Hello Darlene

    Welcome to Artful Gathering 2016!  I hope you have a wonderful time here this summer.  No matter which classes you choose, you are sure to be inspired and learn some great techniques!  I am back for my third year teaching "MORE Mixed Media FX" where we will create an art journal of all kinds of cool techniques for use in mixed media art.  Below is a short video highlighting what we cover in class.  Here's the link to it in case you are interested:

    I'm also offering all my students a chance to win my workshop for FREE and we'll make that draw in class on August 20.  

    Best wishes for a fabulous time here at Artful Gathering!  You're going to love it!

  • Hi Darlene! Welcome to AG2016!

    I invite you to go Slightly Mad and/or a Little Nuts with me this year! If not, I do hope we bump elbows somewhere inside AG! Can't wait to see what you create this summer! -Susan

  • Hi Darlene;  Welcome to Artful Gathering!  I hope you have a great time this summer.  You've got so many wonderful choices for workshops, whatever you decide on I know you'll be pleased.  Zinnia puts on absolutely the BEST event, bar none!

  • Hi there Darlene, welcome to Artful Gathering 2015!!!

    This is my first Artful Gathering and I am really excited to share my 'Narrative Thinking Through Collage' workshop in session 1, which is all about learning different paper collage techniques, styles and approaches, as well as how to tell visual stories or create narrative art. 

    Maybe I will see you there, but if not, have a great time at any of the amazing workshops available this year!
