Painting With Wilson Bickford

This greatly anticipated show is hosted by North Country native, artist and author Wilson Bickford. Well-known in the North Country community for teaching art classes and painting scenes of the Adirondacks, Bickford will be sharing his knowledge, work and talent with the artistically-inclined viewers in WPBS-TV's broadcast community.

Bickford has numerous online painting tutorials and demonstrations available to anyone online, but Painting With Wilson Bickford will be a special program for his fan base in the North Country community. On the subject of Bickford's new program, his student Helen Ziegler of Harrisville, NY stated: "Wilson is a great art teacher and has inspired many people to paint, who would never attempt it otherwise! As one of his students, and I think most of us feel the same, we can't wait for the opportunity to watch Wilson on a weekly basis on WPBS-TV."

Tracy Duflo, WPBS's Director of Production, has been involved with the program since day one. "Painting With Wilson Bickford isn't like any other locally-produced shows that we have on WPBS-TV, stated Duflo, It's great because our viewers can learn the techniques to create their own, unique works of art through watching Wilson. He's really amazing at what he does."
