The afternoon workshop, from 1-4pm will be Oil Painting with Chris Severn (C.R.I)  and all materials needed for this workshop are provided.  Join Chris for an afternoon of creating some amazing fantasy and pop art paintings in the Bob Ross style. The paintings are fun and easy and no experience needed! Along the way you will learn about the basics of oil painting and explore the beautiful world of nature through our brushes and canvas. We will use Bob Ross's famous wet-on-wet technique to create stunning landscapes filled with trees, mountains and waterways. And the best part? There are no mistakes in painting, just happy accidents! So lets have fun, be creative, and spread joy through our paintings! By the end of our time together, you will have a beautiful master piece to take home and proudly display. Who knows, you might even discover a new passion!
