Bob Ross Landscape Instructor in Ottawa

Art is a constructive and creative venture. By allowing yourself to create something purely from Bob Ross painting designs, you encourage creative thinking and effectively reduce stress for a happier, healthier life. If you're interested in art but don't have any experience, I encourage you to join me for group or private lessons on the art techniques and methods of the great late Bob Ross.


“Painting a Landscape is not what makes a good artist, it’s taking what I know, and being able to teach that to a student with “No Experience“ within just a few hours and thus coming out with a finished painting that looks like a work of art”

NOTE: All Paintings are Bob Ross inspired. 

About the Instructor

As the only certified Bob Ross paint instructor in Ottawa, I am able to teach my clients the very same method of painting that the great Bob Ross himself used throughout the 357 episodes on the famous PBS show, “The Joy of Painting.”


My instructing method is very similar to Bob's own — I remain calm and collected throughout the entire process for a comfortable and relaxing painting session, and most of all, we have fun doing it! 😁

About the Class

Following Bob Ross' own style, I teach Alla Prima, which is also known as wet-on-wet painting. This painting method allows for a full, complete painting in just a few hours.

To start off, I encourage the class to follow along with me as I instruct them, “Step by Step” and offer my individual attention and assistance to students throughout the process.

I have listed the most common questions I receive about my classes, as well as their answers, below:


  • Do your classes have an age limit? Participants must be 13+ years of age to participate in the painting lessons.
  • What if I don't have painting experience? With a certified Bob Ross instructor's help, even the most inexperienced individuals can learn to paint like Bob Ross in just hours.
  • Should I bring anything? We ask that you bring a roll of paper towel and some wet- wipes. Don’t forget your water bottle and paint cloths, you can even bring a pen and notepad if you want to take down some pointers, (Optional) everything else will be provided for you.
  • What about prices? Prices stated are based on Group Lessons (Per person at my Studio) I also offer Private Lessons. Prices will vary depending on size of canvas, location (If not in my Studio), and number of students etc.
  • Do you offer Group Rates? Yes, depending on the number of Students, Location, and Size of canvas. (Pls Call or Email me for details).
  • Am I able to come to your location to teach? Yes, I am fully mobile, depending on exactly where your located? The only thing you need to supply is the room, tables, and chairs. (Keep in mind, price varies based on, travel, location, size of canvas, and number of students, etc.
  • How many students can you teach at once? I can teach up to 4 students at my studio, and up to 15 outside my studio, depending on the establishment, ie room, tables, chairs etc.
  • How long does it take to complete a painting class? This depends on many factors like, what size of canvas you choose, the number of students, and the assistance that may be required throughout the lesson, but as a general guideline, the 12 x 16 sized canvas usually runs around 3-4 hours, and the 16 x 20, 4-5 hours. Remember these are only guidelines, times may vary either way.
