The late Bob Ross was host of the public television series “The Joy of Painting,” which ran from 1983 to 1995 and still appears in reruns in many broadcast areas.

During each half-hour segment, Ross would instruct viewers in the art of oil painting using a quick-study oil painting technique that kept colors to a minimum and broke paintings down into simple steps that anyone could follow.

The cost is $50 and includes all materials and seating is limited. The Bob Ross Wet-on-Wet Technique allows students to leave every class with a complete, ready-to-frame painting.
