About this Event

Looking for some serenity right now? Let Bob Ross help you escape.

Georgia Public Broadcasting and KQED join to bring you a free virtual watch party for a soothing episode of The Joy of Painting!

If you have a canvas, paints, and brushes at home (list below), follow along as Bob paints some "Royal Majesty," featuring a secluded waterfall deep in the mountains, standing tall and proud. During breaks, we'll be joined live by artist Nic Hankins, a Certified Ross Instructor, to go deeper into Bob's techniques and answer your questions.

Or just unwind, let Bob's cheerful spirit and assurance wash over you, and chat with fellow fans about the magnificent mountains and all the happy little accidents!


Here is a list of everything you'll need to complete the painting.
