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 learn the how's and why's of making this wet-on-wet technique flow from your fingertips - well at least make a grand effort for your first painting. Maybe you will get inspired enough to take another class!
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!!!
Everything you need to complete the painting is included
