  • Hi and welcome, Gina!

    This is my second year teaching here at Artful Gathering and I love it! It's a warm, welcoming environment full of creative people learning and sharing, so what's not to like? If you want to learn mixed media assemblage with a little sculpting and a little jewelry making to boot, I hope you'll consider my class "Aiming for the Divine: Relics of a Straight Shooting Woman."

    No matter which classes you choose, enjoy the creativity!



  • 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!

  • Hello Gina, welcome to Artful Gathering 2018, thanks for signing up for my workshop Desert Spirits: Blue Corn Maiden and Sedona Moon.

    If you have any questions feel free to email me at gristello@gmail.com I will answer as soon as possible. 

    I am looking forward to meeting you, for now, please tell me a little bit about yourself. I know this will be an amazing experience for all of us.  Enjoy!!
