Jerry, I am so blessed to recieve your daily programs on BYU and am grateful to you for providing such fabulous instruction. Since I also have the ability to tivo all your shows and review all I want , would there be an additional benefit to signing up online. I am not crazy about looking at a small screen as opposed to tv screen, but if you can convince me that there is so much more to learn online, I will. I particularly enjoyed study on trees and would like more of that in all areas. ...more tropical, also ...and do you ever do workshops in Fl?...even though would love to come to your town to the barn....Sorry so long , but you have created a passion for painting in me like no other. A thousand thank yous for your time , effort and passion of teaching others...You are a blessing!!!!!

Jerry, I really enjoy the videos.  I have ordered several videos and brushes of yours through the years and I attended one of your workshops in Roswell back in '08 I believe.  I may try the online school next.  I just wanted to pass along my best wishes and also to thank you for willingness to share your talent. May God continue to richly bless you!

I would give 5 stars if the online stuff could be watched on an iPad!  Other than that, I'm finding the videos to be a gold mine.  I had done Bob Ross-style painting for years, then switched to acrylic.  I've taken a few classes, but I've learned more from these videos than from all the classes combined!  Awesome!  Thanks!

HI Jerry.  You've sure inspired me to paint.  I've been a mud-mixer in oils for a couple of years, but now my paintings are starting to look like i know a little about it.  I got lucky to catch one of your shows on PBS.  They are not shown regularly on local PBS - a shame. I've bought a number of your books and DVD's and they help me immensely.  I'm certain you've touched a great many lives in a very positve way.  Please keep up the great work.  I'm looking forward to more painting in my future.  thanks for the insiration.

I've watched you on our PBS station for a number of years. I've really enjoyed it,but your online school is fantastic. I'm so glad that I joined. It's the next best thing to being in a classroom. Maybe someday I'll be in one of your classes.

Hi Jerry, My Mom has been a follower of you and has several books and DVDs. Mom has been faltering for years but has continued to promise paintings to different people. Now it is her Doctor. I have taken over and have completed her painting. I have a regained my confidence as a painter. Our journey has been interesting as the patients, nurses and doctors have a ongoing interest of each paintings progress. Thank you Jerry for teaching both of us. Ann Marie

After a few years of painting along with Jerry from grainy public TV episodes, I am super excited using his new online school. Unbelievable!! The videos are crystal clear, VERY informative and helpful. I love the ten minute "Snippits&qu ot; that focus on a given topic (snow, various types of trees, water reflections, types of shadows, wood grain, etc.) Viewing an entire series online (24x7) without having to wait for 4 weeks for public TV to show all the sessions makes it SO convenient. It is handy being able to pause and rewind. No more dragging my easel and setting up in the den to view on the TV. As always, the 2011 series of paintings are gorgeous and Jerry is inspiring and offers professional quality instructions and a variety of interesting paintings to learn from. I highly recommend any serious artist get signed up for the Online School immediately to boost your progress. The VERY reasonable fee is incredible for an opportunity to have 24x7 access to paint along with a famous professional artist.

Jerry, Love your show on pbs out of Louisville, ky. watching your shows have taken me from a ham fisted beginner, to where I have sold 6 paintings in 2010, started with acrylic and now am using acrylic underpainting with water micerable oil on top, keep up the good work and thanks again.

I've been following along with Jerry's miniature series and just finished my version of "Homestead&q uot;, a wintery farmhouse scene. What a pleasure it was to watch as Jerry shared his talent. Thanks for all the tips. I look forward to the next show.

The previous comment is truly a sad one. The most sure way any of Jerry's students or visitors to his website know they are on the correct web page is if the baackground is BLUE it is Jerry's current and only web site. As a long time student of Jerry's I'd be lost without this connection.  Please share this simple hint with your fellow artists so we support Jerry, his workshops, and on-line school in the way we intend.  BLUE =Jerry

Recently I reached Yarnell Art (Diane) in an attempt to find out more about your Studio and School.  She told me she didn't know anything about a Yarnell School in Oklahoma.  I later learned she is married to your brother, and they both worked for you previously.  Why then would she be dishonest and not share information about how to reach you and your Oklahoma school? My wife and I adore your teachings and ultimately were happy to figure things out and how to reach you. Hope no one else is being misled in this fashion!

I love being able to have lessons at any time of the day or night, and one after the other, in order, wow!   Tihis is what I've been waiting for. Thank you, Jerry. It is an honor to be one of your students.  I can't wait to see you and Donna at the Vacaville workshop!

I have learned so much from your snippets and videos!  I have had occasion to go back several times to refresh my memory on specific procedures.    Jerry has always inspired me, and the on-line school is like a 24-7 tutor at my disposal. Thank you for being there when I needed help!  I got very prompt assistance when my computer glitched and was back on line very quickly.  You-all are a nice bunch of folks!

I have been trying to watch your teaching series on TV but so many times it fails to be recorded and it comes on at 5:30 am.  i am so happy you are going online.  My right hand has a metal bar to imobilize it and I was told I would have a hard time even learning to write with it again.  I did it!!  Now I am trying to learn to paint.  I make almost all of the mistakes you speak of in your lessons.  Mainly loosening up and not trying too hard to make things look like a photograph.  I want to paint Texas, oak trees, bluebonnets, cactus, and so on.  I am so thankful I was told about your School Of Fine Art.  I know I can make it and will have fun learning.  Thank you.  Jenny

Hi Jerry,,,I have written before when I found your website.  This new one is even better! Haven't been able to watch you on TV since I moved from W. FL to E. FL (don't have cable).  Miss you greatly & love your work. You are truly a blessing. Have always known you were a Christian, which makes your work more special, but would like to know more about your background and church affiliation.  God bless you and your family richly for your witness and inspiration. I'm trying to get back into painting, but don't have much space in this apt. Am caretaker of my dad who will be 97 in Jan. He is a retired Assembly of God minister.

Took the paint mixing class at Bardstown, KY and learned sooooo much.  Some things just fell into place for me after that class.  Thank you so much  and thank you Donna for calling me about the time.

LOVED the lecture and both art classes! Learned a lot again and am finally getting more satisfied with my painting and so anxious to start my first commissioned work next week. And I already have a 2nd one! Loved the Hampton Inn too although I didn't need to stay there, it seemed easier access for those that did since they didn't have to go out in the weather to get to class. Always love buying new products too! Have really enjoyed the miniature series -got America's Pride and Homestead. Anxious to try those too! Painting takes me away from the pain of lupus now and I do appreciate the prayers and pray that you and Donna have a very safe trip back home. Love you both!

I so enjoy your progrms on all available PBS CHANNELS.  I freak whenever you are not on or moved to a different channel.  But eventually you return to another and I am always so happy and relieved.  Would love to get copies of some of those teaching series.  Especially love the one about the River Runs through it.  I have learned so much from your shows.  Can't wait to find out more about your online classes.  Thanks much and God Bless you and yours.
