Video Compatibility: Artful Gathering workshop video viewing quality is delivered with the utmost attention to reliability across different viewing devices. To determine the compatibility of your viewing devices such as iPads, Laptops, Tablets, PCs, and Macs, we encourage you to test any and all of the videos we present on this front page using your favorite devices before you purchase your workshops. Our videos are delivered in both HD quality and normal quality.
Video Veiwing Requirements : We do not use the typical video services used by most online sites. Instead, Artful Gathering video presentations are designed especially for our retreat venue and created especially for our unique requirements.
Workshop attendees will need high speed internet access to view our workshops, as well as a fast computer. Some devices and internet browsers react differently to flash videos. We invite you to play the videos on THIS website.
While we do not offer technical services, we do work to help support you with most minor technical questions. You are always welcome to contact us with questions.
You will need to know how to download pdf. files, and you will need to have a reliable e-mail address to receive messages from your classroom, your instructor, and the Artful Gathering staff.
Art Supplies: All workshops come with a downloadable materials and supplies lists. Kits are offered by some instructors and sold directly to their students, while supplies last. Supplies are not included in tuition. All domestic and international shipping fees apply according to your own destination.
Six Weeks of Classroom Access: While a physical art retreat workshop may last a day or two, an Artful Gathering workshop allows for SIX whole weeks with your workshop materials and your instructor. During these six weeks you can go at your own pace, interact with your retreat mates, and you can ask your instructors questions.
Artful Gathering faculty set to work producing their workshops for Artful Gathering many months in advance. Our workshops are literally "hot off the press." In all instances we do our very best to release details about the workshop as quickly as possible.
Full and complete workshop details are published before workshops are open for registration. Kits and DVDS are sold separately.
