Joy of Painting the Bob Ross Way

Join Certified Ross Instructor Ted Simpson as he guides you in painting “fluffy clouds” and “happy little trees”.  Using the same gentle step by step guidance as the PBS icon, Ted will help you create an entire landscape in just a couple of hours.  Complete a finished painting in each session, ready for framing and admired by your friends and family.  Each session will focus on the many different ways Bob has spread the Joy of Painting with landscapes that feature strong mountains, tall waterfalls, deep woods, lovely cabins and big crashing waves.  All supplies are included and no previous experience required!   The cost is $50/55/60 for members, residents or non residents/members
