Held by Paul Ranson
Paul teaches with wife, Terri Robertson at a variety of locations across Sussex & Hampshire. Mainly using village halls with good disabled facilities, in pretty or unusual locations, the classes are close to the following towns: Romsey, Botley and Portsmouth in Hampshire; Horsham, Bognor Regis and Worthing in West Sussex; Forest Row and Battle in East Sussex.
Regular Classes are held at weekends from 10:00am to 4:30pm at all venues. Terri produces a Newsletter & Booking form which contains a picture of the painting that will be taught at each class. Paul & Terri teach a painting step-by-step throughout the day until it is finished. Everyone leaves the classroom with a fantastic painting – even if it is their first one. Often, people are amazed by their own capability – they did’t realise that painting could be so easy and this much fun.
Each class costs £45 per person all inclusive. After a space is booked and paid for, the only thing a student needs to bring is a packed lunch and a sense of humour. They teach on canvas (usually 16″ x 20″) and use Bob Ross paints, brushes and materials. The painting on the day is taken from the TV show “The Joy of Painting”, so that if people want to start painting at home, they have a lot of Bob Ross TV Series books, videos and of course the TV programme to help them.
The emphasis of the classes is fun, and learning how to load the brushes correctly with the paint so that you can get all the effects on the canvas that Bob achieves on the show. By the end of the class, you have a beautiful painting that you will be proud to hang on your wall. Have a look at their main website to see what paintings they are teaching at the moment.
