Emmy® Nominated Locally Produced Television Series Goes National!
Roey’s Paintbox – Art is for Everyone to air on several Public Television stations nationwide
“We are looking forward to offering this program to our viewers,” said Kathy Atkinson from Arkansas Educational Television Network, AETN, in Conway, Arkansas. “Roey’s Paintbox - Art is for Everyone is the type of original content our audience is constantly seeking.”
PBS39, ASR Media Productions and Roey’s Paintbox collaborated on the creative arts series. Art instructor, Roey Ebert, helps guide even the most timid beginner step-by-step through the painting process, paying attention to the smallest details within each piece. In the eight episodes, Ms. Ebert introduces artistic vocabulary, concepts and techniques while familiarizing the viewer with different eras and styles in art history - from impressionism and abstract expressionism to pop art and photorealism.
“PBS39 was pleased to collaborate with ASR Media and Roey Ebert on this series,” said Tim S. Fallon, PBS39 CEO. “We have proudly offered it to American Public Television and are gratified to see the overwhelming response to air our locally produced programming nationwide.”
“Artistic expression has a positive effect on your mind, body and spirit,” states Ashley Russo, executive producer and president of ASR Media Productions, “Bringing this project to life has benefitted not only those in our community, but will now have a positive impact on people across the country.“
Supporting and educating the community is a shared mission between ASR Media, PBS39 and Roey’s Paintbox. Ms. Ebert held painting assemblies at six Lehigh Valley community schools and ten senior centers. DVDs of the art series were created and distributed to Southside Bethlehem schools and United Way Community Schools throughout the area.
Roey’s Paintbox was made possible through the generous support of Air Products, St. Luke’s University Health Network, Liberty Property Trust and Alvarez Orthodontics. More information including programming guide and schedule is available at www.wlvt.org and www.roeyspaintboxpbs.com.
