Join us to paint along with artist Bob Ross!
Bob Ross was an American artist who believed that everyone has an inherent artistic talent and could become an accomplished artist given time, practice, and encouragement, and to this end was often fond of saying, “We don’t make mistakes; we just have happy accidents.”
During his TV show Bob Ross instructs viewers how to create an oil painting using a quick style which is broken down into simple steps.
We will be streaming two episodes of Bob Ross on a big screen during the event and getting all of you to paint-along!
You do not need to be able to paint to join this paint along, it is just about having fun and making a mess – or happy accidents as I’m sure Bob would put it!
Painting along with Bob is not easy, he plans his painting and he paints quick! There will be no pauses of the show. This is why it’s going to be hilarious!
Materials will be provided but it would be great if you are able to bring your own.
Please bring your own lunch. We will be making an order of jacket potatoes to be delivered to the Old Fire Station with World Famous Tattie Tim, let me know in a comment if you are interested.
This event is open to everyone of all ages but children must be supervised at all times.
Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy, Bob always wore pale shirts during the show which you could try pick up from a second hand shop. (You could probably find a brown curly wig too…)
