    This last week attending Art Soul Gathering has been such a joy. It’s been so long since I sat down and just let myself go through the art process. I didn’t have all of the supplies but each teacher provided options that allowed me to still complete. I loved how each teacher gave instruction and tips throughout each class. I’m self taught so being able to really learn from others, I was able to create some of the most breathtaking art pieces that I’ll certainly treasure!

    I didn’t expect this to be so amazing. The guest artists and you were fabulous. I couldn’t post much as I’m caring for family right now but I watched. And I am inspired to get art in when I can …. once we have the house to ourselves again, I’ll revisit these artworks and dive in again. Thanks so much for the inspiration. ❤️

    Thank you, Ida, for hosting these great art soul gathering lessons!
    I loved the lessons and found the pdf’s really helpful. Not all artists included the process in the PDF, and because I’m not always able to watch a video, It would be great if this information was included.
    I learned a lot of new use of products, even though I have done a lot of art lessons online.

    With kind regards,

    ASG2023 is a boon! Filled with lots of styles, techniques, tips and mediums, it was a fantastic opportunity for us to learn so much in the past few days. Great to know the many different artists and their approaches towards their art. It was also amazing to look at the interpretations shared by fellow members.
    I’m very new to portraits and these tutorials sort of opened my mind and hand to express myself in fresh ways that I never thought of. Hoping to apply all the learnings from ASG and find my voice through paper/canvas.

Thank you, Ida, and all your wonderful friends for creating and contributing to this. Your generosity is amazing.

  52. Melissa Persing
    Melissa Persing says:

    Everyday I opened your email message held the anticipation of Christmas morning where my family opens gifts. The beautiful paintings by talented and very generous artists was truly a gift. The cherry on top was opening of the bonus artist’s gifts. The bonus gifts were just as amazing as the lesson and extremely generous so much so that I purchased lifetime access so I could somehow show my appreciation to the artists.

    The organization of Art Soul Gathering made finding the email and classes very easy and approachable. The marketing and leading up to the event kept the anticipation building and Ida’s early bonus’s wet our appetite until the event began. Genius!

    The lessons were taught in a way that explained well the variety of supplies and techniques being used. Every artist offered substitutions for supplies and invited participants to make the painting their own.

    This was truly an exceptional experience for me. Thank you all for your extraordinary talents and the time and energy you put into making this a successful event.

  53. Lori
    Lori says:

    Will continue to follow your websites.

    The experience of the Art Soul Gathering 2023 was a very generous offer with Artists around the world. I so enjoyed the sessions and learned something new from each artist I was able to experience. It is so well worth repeating these sessions, so I purchased them as a group of sessions for a very small fee. I will enjoy them over and over again into the future!

  64. Debbie
    Debbie says:

    I am just so grateful to have been able to take part this year This time last year, I hadn’t long received a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease So every day that I can hold a paintbrush or a pencil and create art becomes more precious than the last. My only prayer now is that I will continue to be able to hold a paintbrush and take part again next year. Thank you Ida for coordinating and bringing in so many talented artists and instructors together to guide and teach us xx

    i just loved this series of classes, but my particular favorite was Marina’s portrait using cold wax. As always, I loved Ida’s drawings; they are so relaxing to do and make me feel more of an ‘artist’. Thankyou to all the instructors to this amazing series.

  66. Elaine Robesky
    Elaine Robesky says:

    I was very skeptical about signing up for this ASG series. I wasn’t sure if I would like the subject matter, I am new to painting, not mixed media but painting. Today the word “free” has so much meaning. I think it is wonderful that all the artists in this series gave their time to contribute to this wonderful journey for those who joined. I found all the classes very inspiring and well presented.
    I did and am watching all the videos to see who the artist is and a feel for them as a person. And to hear about their passion for art. I have enjoyed this journey and the different projects and approaches! I did purchase some courses and packages which I am sure I will enjoy for a long time.
    I know the artists felt pressed for time for their presentations, but they all did an excellent job in getting the project finished, keeping the projects simple, but elegant, and fun, and encouraging me along the way. What a wonderful lifetime opportunity you have offered the un-professional artists of the world. You gave me some in-depth look at ALL forms of art and no matter what skill level, I too can experience different medias when painting.

    Judy Skeel says:

    I have really enjoyed the Art Soul Gathering teaser week. There has been a ton of information, wonderful classes, amazing instructors and the art selected for the classes has been diverse and ranging from easy to challenging for me. I have learned many new techniques in various mediums. I never knew about pan pastels before but watching multiple instructors working with them, demonstrating how much fun they are to use I want to invest in a few and learn to use them myself. The “Freebie” that we can keep forever whether we get the full deal or not has been a fabulous touch. Ida did a remarkable job coordinating and executing the teaser week. I am quite sure that the full Art Soul Gathering will be just as exceptional and worth every penny! Enjoy!

  74. Deanna Ingbretson
    Deanna Ingbretson says:

    Thank you for the great art and soul gathering. Made lots of creative art pieces and new skills learned while being a part of this. I was out of my comfort zone but loved trying to do many of the lessons and now feel more at ease with painting faces. Baby steps to becoming a better artist. I also loved how we all used what we had to create many of the projects with out breaking the bank to buy all of the supply’s listed. Many blessings. D

    Dear Ida, Thank you for providing me with so many talented artist in the Art Soul Gathering 23.

    Art awakens and touches the soul. It brings joy to the artist as well as though who view it. You , Ida , and your Gathering is so wonderful to be a part of. Learning new techniques, your guide as a great teacher, and the camaraderie among those that join is wonderful.

  83. Jeanette Dupre
    Jeanette Dupre says:

    I signed up for ASG, to expand my knowledge in a light and shadows when creating faces especially with noses; hence, I was very interested in the Lotus Flower Fairie lesson delivered by Ida. I knew from taking drawing magic secrets, Ida would go into the level of detail I needed and she did not disappoint. An added benefit for me by attending ASG, that I also expanded my knowledge in pan pastels related to shades and tints in addition to pastel pencils with the lesson from Ivy Newton. Thank you IDA for making the ASG offering.

  84. Tracy Bollinger
    Tracy Bollinger says:

    Ida Anderson Lang is such a joyous person I did find that her You Tube videos are amazing. This Art Soul Gathering my favourite lesson was The Oak tree with water colour. I felt healing with the image of paint and water running along my art page in the same pattern a tree grows. So much appreciation I am new to art and felt welcomed and I love the Facebook group, Thankyou to the incredible artists that contribute and people posting their beautiful art projects!!! 💕❤️🌹

  86. Sonia Dias

    It’s so wonderful to be able to be part of this Art Soul Gathering 2023. Not only we get access to free classes but most definitely define our style and help us chose which artists we would like to take further lessons from! I’ve met artists I didn’t know they existed and therefore help me to take a peek at their website and discover them! I really do appreciate this with all my heart and,
    Most definitely, soul!!

  87. Angel Avery-Wright
    Angel Avery-Wright says:

    I would have to say that so many of these lessons touch my heart and souls. I have really begun to love watercolors and painting the lotus flower girl and butterfly and dragonfly all felt like bing in touch with nature. The woman and lion…my dream is to pet a cheetah so it hit home for sure. I didn’t think I could do Gaia but I am in love with what I did. It’s been inspiring, connecting and wishful to be a part of this

    To Ida and the other Artis/Instructors,

    I had NO IDEA there was a place where I could get plugged in to so many different, KIND, ENCOURAGING, AND GENEROUS, artists who are willing to share their knowledge, techniques, (secrets), and personal styles that I have no doubt has taken their lifetime or much of it, to learn and develop. I am truly humbled by it and so excited to be soaking in their knowledge as I slowly attempt to follow and grow into the artist, I hope to be one day. The personal interaction from most of the instructors, has been so touching to watch and experience. I am only sorry, that because I am a much slower creative person, than most, I have not been able to crank out all the projects offered that I want to. HOWEVER!!! You have all made it affordable, which is so kind! I appreciate the opportunity to be able to own these lessons and get connected with many of these wonderful artists, I would LOVE to learn more from. Thank you so much, Ida, for giving 12 whole days, (and I know it’s much more than that), to really experience, listening, watching, and trying to replicate these beautiful art pieces!!! They have truly inspired me, and your tender, loving, spirit, sets such a wonderful tone to the atmosphere of your group, that I very much appreciate. You are beyond lovely and exquisite, in heart, mind, and soul, not to mention a beautiful artist and teacher as well. Thank you for the invitation and I hope to be invited again to next year’s!!!

    Jeanne Champion says:

    For me what pulled me in first was just the art, soul combination because that’s what my art is to me. I love all of Ida’s creations and always want to try them. I bought the package this time because each project pulled me in a little bit more. Marie’s, tree… Omg… So lovely. I ordered some supplies just for that. The Gaia painting and all the lovely nature offerings are me all over. I’m glad I’ll have plenty of time to try my hand at each one at my own pace. 💙🌳🌱🍃🪻🧚🧜💚💛🩷🧡

    Thank you for the Art soul gathering Ida. However, I am so frustrated as I broke my right arm and wrist after the first day and I am now unable to fulfill my desires to paint. I will continue to watch and dream. L

    Sherry Hall says:

    I have loved every lesson & gained knowledge from each amazing teacher. I want to thank each one of you for sharing your time & talents with all of us. This was so much fun & brought great joy to my heart. I am basically homebound because of health issues & art is a wonderful escape. May what you give from your heart & soul come back to you many times in the future. Thanks again.

  96. Shane
    Shane says:

    Where do I begin, there is so much to say and tell…but what I will say for me personally learning all these amazing techniques and ideas is now starting to take my artwork in a whole different direction. Let’s say I could be possibly tagged as more of a perfectionist in my artwork than anything else. I spent five years airbrushing and developing skills so my paintings look like photographs. Well, let me tell you this course is amazing and I can’t wait to see what I can create moving forward. It has helped me to be a more free artist and organic. I love everything this has to offer thank you again Ida…love and light Shane

I wanted to contribute and give back a little to the teachers that shared there knowledge love and precious time. I can’t wait to get to all projects.

    It is rare to find an instructor who does more than offer lessons. Ida offered opportunities to create art from the soul. She encouraged us to paint from deep within, capturing those moments and expressing them our canvasses.

I could not fysicly attend any of the lessons, but it was a pleasure to see some of them get realised and the final results are blowing me away. I have buyed this Art Soul retreat to make projects in a later periode, but I did not wanted to miss them. Their where so many of my favorite teachers in this group and a few new ones that shows me new opportunities to do into small environment as I’m at this moment. and as well they learn me new techniques as well they give me the opportunity to relax and feel less pain. I hope that I can do very soon at least one of the sessions to cheer myself up. Even I go as much as possible outside, sometime someone can open your eyes even more.

  120. Michelle Beckman
    Michelle Beckman says:

    Thank you Ida and all the other artists for putting together and participating in ASG 2023 – it was such a wonderful collection of new and familiar teachers and appropriate for beginners through intermediate, possibly more advanced for some! Watching the classes, I learned how to use some of my favorite mediums in new ways (like in Marie-Laure‘s class), use some media I have only a little experience with (like in Dawn’s class entirely on how to use Pan Pastels or the classes on painting with acrylics), or on mediums I have never used (like cold wax and oil paint). Most classes were 45 minutes to 2 hours but Ida also provided one 7-part course where each section was 30 to 45 minutes, so we got an idea of what it was like to work on projects of various lengths. Each teacher also offered a free gift of some type, often a course but sometimes collage paper or the like, so we could get more familiar with their style, the courses they offer and whether we would be interested in continuing our learning with them in particular. It was a similar set of free courses that brought me to Ida in the first place, and I have signed up for ASL in the past as my finances permit, and I always sign up for her free courses because I love both her art and teaching styles. I was super busy this week, so I only had a chance to watch the videos and not make any art yet, but they were so inspiring that I now have several projects that I want to work on, starting with Ida’s quick opening watercolor pencil “painting” but maybe changing her flower crown to more autumnal flowers to better fit the upcoming season so I can hang it up.

    I Love, Love, Love doing any Gatherings with Ida. My husband passed away the day after Christmas 2022 and I thank the Goddesses for urging me to take her watercolour lessons every month! It was a life saviour for me to get back to my Art
    roots and dive deep in to some profound creativity to depths that I have never known before. Hoping to pick up the monthly lessons again as Fall and Winter set in here in Pennsylvania! Love, Honour and am Grateful for Ida!
