Did You Know- Jerry's has Brand New Shout Out Videos

New advancements to website shows art supplies and attributes in use!

Did you know that the Jerry's Artarama Website now has Shoutout videos that pop up when you roll your mouse over one section of a page? Certain descriptions/keywords will launch a quick video showing one of the incredible features or attributes of our products when you simply scroll over them with your mouse on our page. They can show you how our paint spreads, how well an eraser or pencil works, whatever the best features of a product are, we can now show you them without you even having to click on anything. 

With a simple mouse scroll, you now have the power to see our products in action. This innovative new rollover video tool is just another way Jerry's is out front in our effort to bring you the best ways to experience art products before you buy them. We make shopping even more exciting by bringing you the ability to see every aspect of a product in action. 

When you see this icon you just need to scroll over the description and you will get a fully narrated video to show you how the product works.

We developed these rollovers or as we call them "Shout Outs"  to make ecommerce and product details more exciting and visual.  This new advanced way to see a very important attribute of a product demonstrates yet another way Jerry's leads the pack when it comes to innovation and help for artists. As we embark on new features and advancements we will let you know about them right here!


 

For example, on our page advertising Aquacover Liquid Watercolor Paper, you can see the Rollover Icon:

Happy 562nd Birthday Leonardo da Vinci

Tuesday April 15th marks this master painter's 562nd birthday!

 

Although this Tuesday marks tax day, it also marks the birthday of the original Renaissance Man! Leonardo da Vinci was born April 15, 1452 and was renowned for being a true archetype of the Renaissance with areas of expertise in fields such as art, painting, sculpture, anatomy, architecture, music, math, engineering, geology, cartography, botany, and writing.

Although he is well known for his inventions and conceptualization of things like the tank, flying machines and even his own theory of plate tectonics, da Vinci is best known for his artwork including paintings such as the stunning Mona Lisa and the beautiful and descriptive The Last Supper.

The Last Supper

He was also famous in the art world for his sketches and close attention to detail and realism with more of his sketches and journals surviving than his paintings. His Vitruvian Man sketch shows the proportions of the human body and has been referenced culturally on everything from t-shirts to the Euro coin!

 

The Vitruvian Man

Leonardo da Vinci was a master in many fields and his name now lends a notion that implies master quality and inventiveness. Jerry's Artarama has several products and art supplies with his name on it from oil paints and watercolors to kids' art supplies and studio easels, the name "da Vinci" marks them all!

Get out there and remember what an amazing artist, inventor, genius and true Renaissance Man Leonardo da Vinci truly was!
