We are now in production for the new painting TV show entitled "The
Complete Painter" - with Jeffry Krafft.
Be sure to check here for local and nationwide broadcasters as they become
The Complete Painter
will first be an instructional show (as Jeffry's last show "Painting Secrets"
was), but it will also include many behind-the-scenes activities today's artists often encounter on a daily basis! This
information is never covered on the typical painting show. The Complete Painter
aspires to be like no other painting show on television!
Some may describe our new show as an artist's "lifestyles" show? Because Jeffry
firmly believes an artist can never stop learning; no one artist can ever do it all, or know it all! Therefore, Jeffry
will also invite other guest artists and instructors to come on and demonstate or discuss their own unique approach and philosophy
to painting - in a variety of mediums! This helps the viewer become a more informed and "well-rounded" painter;
while possibly inspiring them to try something new!
As with Jeffry's previous show "Painting Secrets", he will also discuss, investigate,
and explain all the "practical" information artists should be informed of in order to be the best artists - no matter how
often you may chose to paint.
Finally, Jeffry will also visit places of interest and conduct art-related interviews
with those successful in the business.
So whether you're a "hobby" painter, a serious "amateur", a practicing "professional", or
just an art "lover", there is sure to be something for everyone!
Please visit this "TV show" page for future show availability, updates on production, and related links,
including the Visual Arts Network. Note! We are currently looking for individuals or organizations that may be of interest
to artists, or the general public. If you, or someone you know, may be a candidate for this, please contact us using

"The Complete Painter" was originally entitled
"Painting Secrets" and was produced at Comcast Cable's Northwest Indiana studios. The show was produced for one
season ending in 2007'.
From the start, Jeffry always felt there was a lot missing from the current lineup of how-to painting
shows - especially for those wanting more serious instruction. Even adult formal arts education programs often leave
graduates to fend for themselves after graduation regarding the practical side of living or working as an artist.
All this motivated Jeffry to produce an all new show that would do its best to satisfy these needs,
while offering something for painters of all levels. The show is also designed to educate, and even entertain,
those who might not paint at all, but simply enjoy and appreciate the visual arts. Jeffry's many years managing an art
gallery before painting full-time taught him a lot about dealing with artists, buying and caring for art, displaying
All these factors are taken into account with each episode under the new name "The Complete Painter".
The idea is to help painters continue in becoming the most well-rounded (complete) painters they can be. And therefore, having
as few limitations in their creativity as possible. Each week Jeffry takes us along as we learn new things from new
people and places. "The show's content could go on forever sincere one will never know it all... especially when
a sincer artist must first learn something about the subjects we paint, before we experiment in how to paint them".
Lastly, an extremely important factor is including guests of all types - offering their experience
and knowledge in painting, the subjects we paint, and the overall art world. The majority of demonstrations are
given in oils, but other mediums are also included - covering most painting and drawing media.
