I just want you to know how much I appreciate you.

I have watched you on and off on PBS for many years and have been a member of your online school for several months.

Your instruction and videos are incredibly informative and I really enjoy it.

You have inspired me with your talent, your ability to communicate, and your obvious love for God.

Thank you and keep on blessing us with your talent!

God bless you and keep you,<o:p></o:p>

Jerry, I found your show by accident on PBS about 6 months ago, sorry I didn't discover it sooner!  I paint in oils, but I love your "dirty palette";  watching you 

mix colors and apply them has been extremely helpful to my painting efforts.  Thank you so much for all you do.

I stumbled upon your class by luck and now I look forward to the next one.  I have dabbled with oil, acrylic and watercolor for a long time, I was never happy with my work, as a matter of fact

I throw away everything I do since I am never satisfied with the results.

Since I started watching your classes I developed a new attitude, I actually feel that I can paint and this time maybe even hang one up.

Dear Jerry,
 I have been an online student for about a month now. I have been away from painting for a long time. You have given me new enthusiasm for my art and now I find I paint at least once a day! I have learned a lot already from your videos that have me so excited, you should hear me gush about your lessons and my paintings! Friends of mine, a husband and wife team, have improved SO much since starting the online school and have actually taken a few workshops with you, it is inspiring to see their progress! Thank you for making this school available. You are a good man, to be sharing your love and talent with all of us out here. God bless you and yours.

I just wanted to say that you have been very inspirational to me as an artist. After I started viewing your TV series I employed many of your techniques to my paintings with great success. I have also purchased a few of your instructional DVD's. Thank you again for steering me in the right direction.

Hi Jerry,

I know that you endorse Max water miscible oil paints.  I have been using Winsor & Newton Artisan water-mixable oils for years, and I was wondering how these paintds compare in quality to the Max paints?  Also is there a way to find out which colours of the Artisan oils to use that would match the acrylic colours you use on your shows?

Thank you..

I have all of Jerry's books and have gotten 6 of your dvd's from the website.  I do think I learn more from the books as they have a step-by-step pictures and explanations with the colors.  I would purchase more dvd's if there were one addition to the mailing.  A handout with the dvd showing the step by step with colors like you have in the "basics" books with each project.  The handout would only be about 6 pages and would cut down on the rewind, replay, rewind, replay when I am painting.  Am I the only one to think of this?  Or is it not feasible?  Let me know.  If you do make this addition I have a list of at least 4 more dvd's to purchase. 

Thanks so much & God Bless.  

Our publisher is not interested in created 'paper' products .... the focus is now on e-books which is why most of our books have gone out of print. We appreciate your input ... however currently the handout you recommend is both cost and time-prohibitive. Again, thank you for writing!

I just purchased my 1st month of YarnellShool Lessons.   I have been painting , using books and PBS specials, with Jerry Yarnell for many many years.  It is so nice to fine tune the skills Jerry helped me to develop.  It is one of my highlights, in my life, to know the Yarnells.  Thank you and God Bless.

Absolutely taken with your teaching allows the individual to BE individual.  It's been many years since I've picked up a bursh with a serious intent ...watching and listening to what you provide is true inspiration to return to that wonderful smell of a studio, and find the satisfaction it brings!!!..Thank you!

 I was looking on your website, and clicked on the "Jerry' s Fine Art" section. All I can say!. Absolutely beautiful paintings. Pieces such as Foggy Departure, Pachyderm Parade, Rainbow Big Bend, and Moonlight Falls, are all beyond great. They show you as a visionary artist. My goodness, we're lucky to have you as a teacher.

Dear Jerry,
I startd buying your instructional DVD's and Videos about 6 years ago (before I knew of the Yarnell School of Fine Art).  I have about 40 of them now.  Needless to say, under your direction I have grown tremendously.  Knowing that God is at the center of who and all I am, and am not, has given me the courage to do the one thing that I have wanted to do since I was a young girl, paint.  Art School was out of the question back then, but thanks to you and the Yarnell School of Fine Art it isn't now.  I am so blessed and thankful to be able to be a member of the Yarnell School of Fine Art!  What I have learned, and continue to learn daily is beyond any of my expectations. Thank you somehow doesn't seem to be enough to say -  God Bless you because He certainly did me when He directed me to you and the Yarnell School of Fine Art!

Hi Jerry,!!!!
  I am 26 years old (my body says 61 but I never listen). I have never been to an art school ( I do good to buy a brush) but when I was about 24 my brother brought canvas, brushes and paint to my house. He put them on the table (with just a little force) and said "Now Paint". I have been teaching myself ever since. HOWEVER I learned more from you than any other how to paint books or videos. You explain how to paint tree branches and how to hold the brush like NO OTHER has. You are THE BEST teacher. God has blessed me when I found you.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU

Hi, Jerry.  Just wanted you to know how much I've enjoyed your Saturday morning program on OETA.  Your program inspired me to want to learn to paint landscapes.  With the help of your snippets and your DVD, I've successfully completed a smaller version of your "Osage Prairie Summer".  I'm going to give it to my daughter for her birthday.  She has seen it and is absolutely thrilled.  I thank you so much for giving me the courage to paint.  It's so much fun, and I'm just sorry I waited until I was 65 to try it!  Keep those wonderful shows coming!  I would encourage anyone who wants to learn to paint to sign up as a student on your web site -- I'm so glad I did!  The instructional tips on your web site are invaluable!!

Hi Jerry,
Have been following you for many years.
Attended one of your schools in DeBary, Fl.
Enjoy painting with you. Love the new shows.
Thanks for everything.

Thank you! We enjoyed talking w/Cassandra today. Thank you so much for your order and for clarifying which website is "really" ; ours! Jerry & Donna Yarnell

We joined your online school January 13 and have been painting almost daily ever since.  It's about 6 weeks later now and we have painted at least 1 painting a week.  Your instructions are so good and leave a lot of room for creativity which is so important to find yourself as an artist.  Our paintings are entirely different from one another.  We are both ready for a critique.  Should we submit our paintings separately, sort one for me and two for Rick or completely separate?  

Do you want them critiqued before you attend the Rancho workshop? If not, as workshop attendees, you can bring them and Jerry will critique them there at some point during the 2 days. Donna Yarnell
