Take a DIY Painting Class with Bob Ross
Many remember the soothing teaching style of artist Bob Ross whose PBS series The Joy of Painting helped us create vivid landscapes. Over 31 seasons and 400+ episodes, Ross became known for his hushed, calming tones, big bushy hair, and "happy little trees." The series is worth revisiting today. Paint with Bob on YouTube here.
