Bob Ross landscape workshop with Year 13

Year 13 art students have participated in an amazing oil painting landscape workshop inspired by the legendary Bob Ross. It’s fair to say everybody had a great time and really got submerged into the Bob Ross experience.

A massive thank you to Mrs Jessop for hosting this truly fantastic experience.

As Bob himself once said.”I think there’s an artist hidden at the bottom of every single one of us.”
