The Wythe County Department of Parks and Recreation has scheduled Judy Moore-Gist, an experienced and certified Bob Ross instructor, to provide local residents with lessons in painting landscape scenes this month.
The program, entitled, “Experience the Joy of Painting,” will be held at the Max Meadows Ruritan building Sunday, Sept. 22 from 1:30 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 and Recreation.
Brown added, “If you like to paint or are a Bob Ross fan, come give this class a try.”
The registration cost for the four-hour class is $65 and is required to be turned in no later than Friday, Sept. 20.
For registration information, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 276-223-4517 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The class will require a minimum of eight participants and is open to the general public ages 15 and up.
