As a long time student of Jerry Yarnell, a Fine Art professional instructor, I am outraged his lifelong work is being hijacked by an EX family member and ex staff members who are selling Jerry's OLD outdated instructional videos from his very popular PBS TV series.
When people/artists do a Google Internet search and contact the site which claims to be the official Jerry Yarnell site, Dianne and her staff are pretending to be Jerry Yarnell as they take people's money for purchases of DVD of Jerry's instructional classes, books he wrote, and other supplies like paints and brushes.
When people ask to reach Jerry directly they lie and will not give out his current information.
Jerry is going strong and still producing awesome classes which have helped me become a great artist. I was fooled for over a year because I had no way of knowing the old site was no longer Jerry Yarnells site, because it was stolen from him. [continued below]....
..... Jerry Yarnell is the artist and what they are doing should be against the law, maybe it is.
The REAL official site for Jerry Yarnell IS: http://yarnellschool.com, (not yarnellart.com)
The REAL official Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jerry-Yarnell-Yarnell-Studio-School-of-Fine-Art-LLC/379206402152?ref=ts
I sent Dianne money for supplies before I learned the truth. I'm ticked off. She lied. She is even telling people Jerry Yarnell died. OMG!!! Jerry is a wonderful man, a walking talking Christian, and thousands of artists have learned amazing techniques from his great style of teaching, and those ex employees need to be stopped.
This has gone on for years. Enough is enough. Jerry Yarnell and his wonderful wife Donna are apparently trying to take the high road, but I was ripped off and I'm setting the record strait.
