Bob Ross

The Bob Ross History

All you need to do is have a desire to paint, Bob Ross can show you how to paint.

Bob Ross Painting Days

The Bob Ross technique is so simple that anyone can learn how to produce beautiful paintings in a single session. There are Bob Ross CRIs around the country running painting days to teach the techniques. A painting day usually consists of between 4 and 6 hours of tuition in the Bob’s method. Attendees follow a step by step demonstration by the instructor, who then supervises the attendees as they paint. In addition, we provide all the tools, equipment and refreshments, and sometimes lunch as well. All you have to provide is a roll of paper towels and yourself.. Experience the “Joy of Painting”, and paint your own masterpiece with the help of a Bob Ross CRI. Open the door to view our 2018 list of painting classes.

Bob brought the joy of painting to millions of people around the world through his television shows. Most of all, he didn’t make painting look easy, he showed it was easy. Furthermore, he showed that all someone needed to do to make beautiful paintings was to have a desire to paint. After all, the skills could be learnt.

Certified Ross Instructor Training Courses

The first weeks of each discipline are run in November, the second weeks in February and the third weeks in April/May. After teaching the formal instructor syllabus, the instructors sometimes run an additional week of instruction based on their individual speciality, of which Ellen Tyre and her Seascape week is a good example. Please contact me if you would like to know more about the formal CRI courses.
