What you'll do

You'll start with a blank canvas, and in the end you'll have a happy little painting. We go over everything from how to add the liquid white, to signing your signature. You will use the Bob Ross supplies that are provided for you. We only use the Bob Ross oil paints and his signature big 2" brush (the little ones too!) You need not bring anything but a snack, a soda or two, and your happy smile. You will learn how to hold the brushes properly, how to load the brushes with paint, and how to apply the loaded brush to the canvas to get your desired effect. You will learned the how's and why's of making this wet-on-wet technique flow from your fingertips - well at lest make a grand effort for your first painting. Maybe you will get inspired enough to take another class from a local CRI when you return home. You will find this relaxing, fun, entertaining and educational. Class is set at 2.5 hours but for one or two students in a class you could be done quicker, if four or more in a class it may run longer. Also if you have an idea of what you would like to paint, please Le t me know a few days ahead so I can plan it out.
Other things to note
Remember we are working with oil paints an it may not come out of clothes. Ware something you don't mind getting paint on.
Paintings will NOT be dry when you leave. I have a few options to help

My name is Hope Blakely, and I love being creative. I have many outlets, sewing, baking, cake decorating, and in 2017 I went to a class in Florida to become a CRI - what's this? A Certified Ross Instructor! I started watching as a child, then 2012 I needed a new hobby and up pops Bob on the TV, I was hooked. So when I found out about the classes to become an instructor it did not take much convincing to get me to go. I still do all that other stuff but the most fun I have is teaching others the ways of Bob. I go over the canvas from start to finish. Happy Clouds, Happy trees, Happy Painting!!!

This was awesome! If you are debating this, do it! She works with you step by step, but it is not too slow where you get bored. She’s so kind and hospitable as well. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

Hope was an amazing instructor. She was kind and taught us many techniques. I am so grateful to have gotten this experience. I felt like an artist walking out of her studio.
