Bob Ross’ son hosts painting workshops at Blount County Public Library. The beloved painter Bob Ross is best known for “happy little trees,” mountain scenes, and the most laid back attitude on life that could be imagined. His PBS series the “Joy of Painting” continues to inspire young and old to take up painting almost thirty years after his passing.
Bob’s technique has been described as painting for the masses. It is quick, efficient and always personalized.

Bob was generous with his knowledge and his talent did not fall far from the tree. Bob’s son Steve Ross has followed in his footsteps and has continued the tradition of education. He will be hosting painting workshops in the “Joy of Painting” style March 4, 2020 through March 8, 2020. Fans of the show will remember Bob’s coworker Dana Jester. Dana will be on hand at the workshops to share her knowledge and provide guidance to participants.

“I had never been artistic but that all changed when I discovered “The Joy of Painting.” I learned everything I know about painting from watching Bob Ross on TV years ago,” said Richard Johnson. “My family says that simply listening to Bob’s voice is enough to calm anyone down. He was a national treasure and we are excited his son is teaching these painting workshops.”

The fee to join the painting workshops is $125.00 per day. Participants are required to provide their own painting supplies.
A free public program will be offered on Thursday, March 5, 2020. Steve and Dana will speak and give a demonstration free of charge at 6:30 p.m.
“We’re excited to be a part of these programs and hope our patrons can get involved,” a spokesperson from the Blount County Public Library said.
