Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
ArtfulGathering.com announced the winners of their official blog hop event on Monday, May 7th 2012.
To celebrate the opening of this year's 2nd Annual Artful Gathering online video art retreat, Cristina Zinnia Galliher hosted a unique blog hop for bloggers across miles of the web. Sponsored by Jerry’s Artarama, one of the web's largest resource for low priced fine art supplies, one grand prize winner and two runners up were selected at random to receive e-gift card prizes. In order to be eligible to win, participants were asked to visit a new blog posting each week and collect a string of words that would later form an artful phrase. New words were posted on artists blogs across the web each week with the final destination at JerrysArtarama.com.
While learning about the professional artists that are going to be teaching at the 2012 Artful Gathering, blog hoppers also had the opportunity to see and read blogs they have never
visited before. Art venues such as mixed media, drawing, painting, jewelry, fabric art, sculpture, assemblage and collage, offered new explorations for blog hoppers interested in learning more about the 2012 Artful Gathering instructors and the art workshops being offered June - August of this year.
Expanding on the use of the web for online art classes, the 2nd Annual Artful Gathering Online Art Retreat works to bring together professional artists and students while embracing a diverse and celebrated community of people who wish to learn, share and create art but who may not have the time or the opportunity to attend a live retreat. "Our online attendees have the opportunity to save on the expenses of travel, hotel, and vacation time. We have 30 new online video workshops created by professional artists and filmed inside their own art studio. Attendees can visit with their instructors in their online classrooms 24/7 while viewing video presentations that take the viewer right over the shoulder of their instructor. They can tune in on their own time schedules and interact with their instructors for the full duration of the six week workshop." says Cristina Galliher of ArtfulGathering.com
