Workshop Duration While a physical art retreat workshop may last a day or two, an Artful Gathering workshop allows for SIX whole weeks with access to your workshop videos/materials and your instructor. We offer an additional two weeks for video review.
Interaction. During these six weeks you can go at your own pace, interact with your retreat mates, and you can ask your instructor questions inside the classroom.

You may register for as many workshops as your time will allow.

DVDs The DVD version of the online class(s) you are taking will be available to you for purchase, and sold separately as an optional 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 retreat instructor in our 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 participating students.
DVD releases to the general public (those who are not taking the online version) are not available until after the event concludes, at which time they will retail at full price.
