Artful Gathering Online Art Retreats is a one-of-a-kind online event destination. Each summer we celebrate our annual tradition of presenting brand new mixed media art workshops, with new and returning art mentors.
We have been presenting our retreats online for at least a decade, working side by side with artisans from all over the world. We gather online in the spirit of our like-minded passion for learning, and out of a mutual reverence for the individual differences that make our artistic perspectives unique to us.
Our workshops are designed and presented by real-world working artists. Our mentors are selected not only on the basis of their knowledge and expertise within a particular genre, but for their passion for sharing with and inspiring others on the journey.
Artistic people don't all fit into the same niche. Most of us are like a unique tapestry woven together with our personal experiences and creative vision. This is why Artful Gathering embraces a wide variety of artistic perspectives; there is always something new to see, do, and learn!
We love to seek new ways to inspire your imagination and broaden your horizons. What better way to learn than to see through the eyes of a kindred spirit. We hope to spark a passion for art in you.
