If you’ve always wanted to become an art expert and paint “happy clouds and happy trees,” or if Bob Ross is your childhood hero, then you’ll be happy to know you can now book official painting classes through Airbnb.
Airbnb has recently launched its newest Experiences portal, where you can browse through a wide variety of different activities you can take part in while visiting pretty much every corner of the world. And amongst these is the Bob Ross painting class experience.
Each class is led by a CRI, a “Certified Ross Instructor,” who will teach you everything you need to know about painting from the basics of how to hold a brush to colour theory. From there, you’ll be able to go on and create your own Bob Ross-style painting, capturing “happy trees and soft clouds, just like the master used to say.”
Bob Ross believed that there’s an artist in each of us, and to bring that artist out the classes will have oil paints and brushes and all other material ready for you to use – all you need to worry about is wearing something you don’t mind getting paint on and maybe bring a snack or two, since lessons can range from two to six hours.
At the moment, Bob Ross painting lessons are available at a number of cities throughout the US, like Portland, Houston and Detroit. The price starts at around $40 per person. If you’d like to know more or maybe book your first lesson already, you can check out the official Airbnb page here.
