My painting 'career' began about four years ago after I retired.  I had never painted before, but always wanted to try it.  I started with Bob Ross classes but felt I could do more.  Then I discovered Jerry Yarnell.  After watching a few of his videos and then spending a week at his studio early last year, my painting has gone to a whole new level.  For those who are serious about their painting - take advantage of his YSO (Yarnell School On-Line).  This is truly a fabulous resource and will help you immensely as each snippet and full painting videos will help you vastly improve your painting skills.  And last but not least, have Jerry critique your work.  For $35 to critique up to 3 paintings, these phone sessions are extremely helpful and a bargain and its always enjoyable to have a few minutes to talk with Jerry one-on-one.Let me say that it is very satisfying when people see my paintings and tell me what a great artist I am (even though I know I'm not and there is a lot of improvement yet to be done).  Thank you Jerry for your support, inspiration, and encouragement.  God bless

I was so excited this morning watching Jerry painting the Maltnomah Falls. I was visiting there in September and took lots of pictures of the falls. Made it up on the bridge that he's painting. I am so impressed how his paintings develope into beautiful works of art. My New Years resolution will be to keep watching Jerry and try to create my own paintings! Don't want to miss the next episodes of him painting the falls.

When I first came across you, I wasn't too crazy about your show. I was a big Bob Ross fan. Plus even with Mr Ross I thought it wasn't "real art" because it was not inspired. Then PBS took you off for a while. When they returned your show, surprisingly, I was ecstatic! I really enjoy your show!!

Mr. Yarnell, Thank you so much for what you do.  I am so pleased that I happened across your show on PBS.  I have been painting and drawing for most of my life with no formal instruction to speak of.  I have thoroughly enjoyed the Snippets, as well as all of your shows.  You are a great teacher and I have found that whenever I am stumped, I can go back to a Snippet or one of your shows and find what I need.  Thanks for making a retired old lady happy in my rediscovery of how much joy there is in painting.  God Bless you and Ms. Donna and TeamYarnell.

I remember when you first started painting in acrylic.  I have some of your old books.  You inspired me happened and I haven't painted in several years.  Recently stumbled across owned of your water color shows on PBS inspired me again!  I struggle with color.   And what is more inspiring you recognize who is the True Artist.   It is great to find your school.

Hi! I just found one of your shows while channel surfing & have already dvr'd future programs. I've just started watercolor painting & while I enjoy it,I feel somewhat intimidated because I've always been told about how difficult it is. Don't feel as much after watching only 2 shows; would definitely like to learn more about layering. Thanks for sharing your talents & instructions. Much appreciated.

I have been watching PBS and especially like the art shows.  This season they are featuring your lessons on "watercolor" MR. Yarnell you are a terrific teacher. I tried this medium for the first time and in my eyes successfully did one that I felt worthy of framing. Can't tell you how happy it made me. Keep up the good work and Thank you PBS.

Just happened to be clicking through the channels, and stopped at local PBS ch.8 Phoenix...watched Jerry putting snow on the pine trees, and icicles  on the little church with the lights on inside...absolutely amazing! I thought, this guy has a God given creative gift, and is using it well. THEN I looked up this site and HEY...he's a man of God...Jerry, it shows thru your work, and kind spirit. From a Christian musician out west, God bless you in all your work! And thanks for brightening our day out here!</p>

I am so in love with this Certification Program and the YSO series! Jerry is so generous with his knowledge and I am learning so much! This program is well worth every penny! He is such a talented artist and I can only pray that I will become almost as good an artist as he isThis program is the best ever and I thank Jerry, Donna and his staff for helping me achieve my artistic goals! Thank you so muchGod Bless, Judith Tyni

I have taught myself to paint with acrylics  for around 40 yrs and people say I do good work and I have sold several paintings over the years. When Jerry came on PBS with the Paint This shows I was amazed at what I needed to learn and what I could learn from him. He has been a great inspiration to me. I thank God for giving Jerry the ability to teach as he does. Thank you brother Jerry(you are my brother in Christ)

I have been painting for ten years, attended workshops of nationally know artists and today when you did your basics on your watercolor episode. I was amazed at what I didn't know.  Also your seven out of ten comment was validating! This novice thanks you.

Jerry, Last summer I painted a mural on my metal shed in my back yard. It was okay but something was missing and I did not know what.  I joined your online school and after watching your under painting technics awhile back, I realized that is basically what I need to do on the mural.  After practicing your brush stroked and mixing paint to get greyed down colors I painted over the existing mural and the results were awesome!  Everyone that sees it is wowed by it, thanks so you!  I intent to continue with the online school and some day come to your studio to receive your personal instruction.  Thanks so much, for what you share and may God continue to bless your business.

Jerry, can you tell me when your new series will begin in the Indianapolis area on PBS or the Create channel ?   Looking forward to it, enjoy your teaching technique and have learned a lot. Received a third place at the In. State Fair last year and a first at our county fair with a different painting. Thanks for your help. Best regards, Dave Verrill P.S.  Haven't received any info. from our PBS station.

I'm so happy I joined your on line school. I have learned so much. Could you do some more oil paintings. I love your way of teaching. Keep up the good work.

I'm so glad to see the watercolor series.  I studied under various watercolor artists out in Arizona in the 90s.  However, I've put my painting aside for the last few years and have been thinking of resurrecting it now that I am retired.  I've watched you on PBS over time but now I may have the inspiration needed with this series to start up again.  Thank you for this renewed passion in the only medium of which I have been skilled.  I took a Japanese watercolor class a couple of years ago but like the lazy person I have become, I did not do much with that as well.  Hoping to be my talented self again - with much good wishes to you - many thanks  blessings.  9/17/15

I have been really enjoying your watercolor series on PBS. I hope you continue with the series. I have started to learn watercolor this past year and thoroughly enjoy it. I find it refreshing, more so than oil painting. Only frustrating thing is that many times the show does not air via DirectTV and KET public stations due to 'technical issues'. Always on Saturday morning. I either miss part of the painting or all of it. (such as the one airing now - the watercolor Mountain High).

I just joined YSO, this has to be the best $25.00 that I could have spent. I've taken many workshops over the years, in my opinion Jerry you are the best. Our PBS station does not have art instructional programs any more. Thank you so much for YSO. I learn so much from your teaching. Acrylis are my first love, but after I watching you paint with Max oils I got mine out. I would love to see you paint Sunflowers. Have a blessed day.

Jerry thank you for your wonderful art show on PBS.  They don't run your shows in the summer and that's when I want to paint.  Winter is Just to busy.  I do DVR them.  I hope you Continue teaching.  I would love to see more landscapes with stucko buildings.  I just loved The flowers on the stairs.   Ponds with trees and flowers would be nice also.  I use to just paint still life's and portraits, and I'm trying to learn Landscapes.  The ones you have done really are helping..  Thank you so much, God bless your talent Renee
