Bob Ross CRI®
Find freedom on this canvas. Believe that you can do it, ‘Cuz you can do it.
A CRI, certified Ross instructor, is an art teacher trained in Bob Ross’s own instructional method in landscape painting, as seen on the Netflix shows “Chill with Bob Ross” and “Bob Ross Beauty is Everywhere” - compilations of lessons from his original PBS TV series “The Joy of Painting” which ran for 31 seasons and over 400 episodes!
CRI’s are the only instructors authorised and certified by Bob Ross Inc to teach his method. Over an intensive three weeks at the Bob Ross Workshop and Gallery in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, they are trained in all of the techniques and the proper use of Bob Ross products and can teach any of the paintings shown on the series. Using positive reinforcement as a teaching method, CRI's enable an achievable mastery of each step, as well as a joyful class atmosphere - “We don’t make mistakes, we just have happy accidents”.

Bob Ross Landscape Workshops
When you join a Bob Ross workshop, the classroom is set up with all that you need for your lesson and you don’t need to bring anything other than your happy self. Use authentic Bob Ross materials and tools, chosen specifically to work well with Bob's method. Your instructor will explain everything you need to know about using the products and about the painting that you will be working on - almighty mountains, a seascape, a forest or waterfall scene, and maybe one of Bob’s iconic cabins.
Follow along with each step of the painting as it's demonstrated before you, leading you from a blank canvas to a finished painting by the end of your lesson, ready to take home and frame.
