Certified Bob Ross Instructor to Host Painting Class

This is the landscape scene students will paint.

The Wythe County Department of Parks & Recreation has scheduled Judy Moore-Gist, an experienced and certified Bob Ross Instructor, to provide local residents with lessons in painting landscape scenes.

The program, entitled, “Experience the Joy of Painting,” is scheduled to be held at the Max Meadows Ruritan Building on Sunday, September 22, 2013 (lasting from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.).

Students will learn the “wet-on-wet” painting technique used by Bob Ross, the PBS-TV host who inspired millions each week with his television show, The Joy of Painting.

“This class has always been a great attraction for the area. Judy Moore-Gist is an amazing artist and first time students are always blown away by their masterpiece,” says Tina Brown of the Wythe County Department of Parks & Recreation.

Brown added, “If you like to paint or are a Bob Ross fan, come give this class a try.”

The registration cost of the four-hour class is $65 and is required to be turned in no later than Friday, September 20, 2013.

For registration information, residents are asked to contact the Parks & Recreation Department via phone (276) 223-4517 or email recdept@wytheco.org.

The class will require a minimum of eight participants and is open to the general public ages 15 & up.
