BEHIND THE DESIGN

As the High School Art teacher at Regina, I’ve been showing Bob Ross episodes to students, hoping to inspire them to be good technical painters. I first assumed that it would feel dated and boring to them. Nothing could be further from the truth. They were hypnotized by his calming manner, and amazed by his painting techniques. When we were offered a Herky statue to decorate, a Senior girl, Elisabeth Boulund, suggested we do a tribute to Bob Ross. My Art 1 class, mostly freshmen, took on the challenge, and the rest is history. –John Demory
