  • I have been meaning to write a review about the Bob Ross art gallery and workshop since the day I went. Before I went, I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews and saw that their lowest rating was four stars. In all of the reviews, there was never even the first single-word about the facility. between that fact, and my love for Bob Ross art, I booked myself into one of their classes. There are no words to describe what a magical experience that day was. I am absolutely terrible when it comes to creative painting. I can paint the house, I can paint a wall, but asked me to paint something abstract and creative, and I'm going to fail. At least, that's what I thought, until I took the Bob Ross class. Bob Ross was more than just a painter, he represents a type of peace that is apparently contagious, and that was evidenced upon walking through the doors of the gallery. The two people that were running it we're above and beyond super nice, and exuded happiness. That quickly rubbed off on to all of us taking the class. From the first brush strokes of phthalo blue that created my sky and water, complete down to the very last happy little tree that I painted, it was all together a wonderful experience. Such a good experience, in fact, that I booked myself into three more classes before I even left that day; and have gotten at least seven other friends of mine interested and wanting to join me at some classes. The $50 price tag includes the instruction, the canvas (which can be bought separately for $10, so let's start doing the math of what a great deal this is), use of all painting tools required, all the paints that were required for that particular picture (and if you ran out of any color, they were more than happy to provide you with more), and the phenomenal instruction from the teacher. My overall experience and recommendation is that if you are planning a trip to or near New Smyrna Beach, call ahead and see if they have a class available. It's worth the time and money in every sense.
  • Took the Landscape I workshop and absolutely loved it! Nick H. is the best art instructor in the country and a true inspiration for struggling students. Every detail of the workshop is very well-planned and students quickly develop the unique painting technique of the iconic Bob Ross. Don't let the cost keep you from attending a workshop - it's worth every dime. I can't wait to return for the next landscape levels and look forward to learning more from Nick. The painting shown here is only the fifth one I've ever done using the BR wet-on-wet method.
