Each week I hope to add a feature of the participating artists appearing at Artful Gathering and I am very excited to add the talented Keith Lo Bue to the list of teachers that are coming to this amazing event this summer for online art classes. I hope you will all come register, as this will be one of the first ever online art fest's of this kind!
