Meet the Artist

Who was Joseph Jerome Yarnell, Jr.? The man we affectionately referred to as Jerry Yarnell had many sides, including Jerry the Teacher and Jerry the Artist. These two sides of our founder came together to create the Yarnell School of Fine Art. Jerry is the star of the PBS TV show “Paint This with Jerry Yarnell®”, which is enjoyed by viewers worldwide, as well as being the number one art show of its kind in Canada.

Jerry himself was an accomplished artist, known for his incredible landscape, wildlife, and western paintings. He used the Yarnell School of Fine Art to share his knowledge and experience with students throughout the world by providing painting classes for adults. He also shared his knowledge through 16 books with painting instructions and tips for artists of all skill levels.

While Jerry is no longer with us and has gone to be with the Lord, Debbie Mattison, a Jerry Yarnell certified artist and certified instructor is available to provide critiques and lessons.
