These two programs are very different.
Yarnell Certified Artist Program (YCAP) is for artists who are already experienced in the acrylic painting techniques Jerry teaches. Artists enrolled in YCAP commit to completing eight assignments within two years. The Yarnell Studio & School of Fine Art LLC will evaluate, grade and comment on each student's assignment. At the end of the two years, the artist receives a certification indicating they have attained a level of proficiency that meets Jerry Yarnell's standards of Fine Art.
Yarnell School Online (YSO) is an online, flexible program for beginners to advanced artists. YSO offers artists a unique opportunity to watch Jerry Yarnell, Master Artist, demonstrate his artistic concepts. YSO is flexibility because an artist can start and stop learning at any time. YSO does not have a formal evaluation process. However, an artist can request an evaluation by making request via Jerry’s Critique-for-Fee Program.
