Show Guests and contributors



Be a show contributor!

As one can see we like to feature a variety of people, places and organizations.    If you, your business, or organization are either art related, or may be an interesting subject to learn about, then paint, let us know and we will be most glad to discuss possibilities.

Most shows include Jeffry painting, but occasionally he will travel to locations and interview people and places of interest to artists and art patrons alike.   Or, if production requirements are agreeable, we invite other talented instructors who enjoy sharing their own unique talents and methods of of working.  Our video "The Complete Painter A - Z" explains and shows this is detail.

If interested, just contact us using the information below with your potential idea and we will gladly discuss possibilities.    Thank you

Be a painting student guest!

If you consider yourself a painting "student", you could make a great guest for the show!  

We are looking for people with a painting in mind, or in progress that you could use some help with.  Jeffry can then give suggestions as to possible ideas and techniques for the piece - just like he would in one of his painting classes - or his own paintings done on the shows.

Just E-mail the us using the links on the "Contact Us" page, or mail information including: your experience (if any), a recent photo of your idea or workin progress, any other finished paintings you have done, and what you feel you need help with now.  

Painting is a never-ending learning process.  As all devoted artists learn something new every day, he is glad to problem solve any situation together with you on a show, or part of a show including similar issues

And remember, if you have difficulty with something, it's certain 10,000 other viewers probably had, or have, the same problem.   So, don't be shy and INSPIRE all the other artist just like yourself!
