Brent Eaton Programming
Produced by Brent Eaton

Artist, and martial arts teacher, Brent Eaton creates an array of programming shown on GCTV:
"Dark Horse" invites viewers to sketch at home during the show and visit with the horses while they’re working.
Brent describes "Eaton Do Ryu" as, "a target-based sword system for my long time students to practice at home".
As one of the models for "Encore Body Art" said, “body art was more interesting than a static piece of art work...more visually interesting".
"Silly-Wizard" is light-hearted, kid comedy, art work for the young-at-heart that want to sketch along or watch colors airbrushed.
One of the strengths of "Windchanger" is being able to touch base on many different art scenes.

"Dark Horse" airs Tuesdays at 9PM, "Eaton do Ryu" airs Mondays & Thursdays at 9AM, "Encore Body Art" airs Fridays at 11PM, "Silly-Wizard" airs Tuesdays & Thursdays at 10:30AM, and "Windchanger" airs Mondays at 6:30PM.
