My Eyes Wide Open...


EYES WIDE OPEN is the theme we celebrating this year. We invite you to post your EYES WIDE OPEN experience, by sharing with us the defining moments in your art journey when your eyes were opened to new perspectives, what they mean to you, and where they have lead you.

At the close of Artful Gathering 2019, we will share each little story with credit to the name you include at the end of your post.  Please feel free to click on the 'My Art Journey' link below to post your entry. You are welcome to include photos!

  • Hi there Christine, 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.

    Feel free to check out the video at the link here if you want to find out more. I have also included some examples of the styles and approaches I demonstrate in the workshop (below).

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