Blue Winter

Sunday 28th July

Westbury Arts Centre

Blue Winter is another full painting day using oil paints, and is a full Bob Ross painting. 

Blue Winter – You Don’t Need Skill, Just A Desire To Paint


The Blue Winter is a well known Bob Ross winter painting. The bright sky of the part-hidden sun lights up the snowy landscape to bring a cool warmth seldom seen in a winter’s scene. This full day event will be held at Westbury Arts Centre, Foxcovert Road, Shenley Wood, MK5 6AA. As well as our full day painting lessons in Milton Keynes, we also do painting evenings in Pubs and Bars.

The Bob Ross technique helps people produce a fully detailed beautiful painting within a very short time. It uses the wet-on-wet style of painting and a number of specially designed paints, knives, brushes to produce clouds, mountains, trees and water within minutes. These longer workshops are designed to help you produce more detailed paintings than our evening events. Learn more about Bob Ross and The Joy of Painting.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t picked up a paint brush for years, because you will walk away with your own unique piece of artwork. Our resident artist will take you, step-by-step, though then process of turning your blank canvas into your own special masterpiece. With a glass in one hand, and a paintbrush in the other, your skills will transfer painlessly to the canvas on your easel. You are guaranteed to produce a beautiful painting that you will be proud to hang on your wall.

As always, we provide everything that you need…… a 40cm x 80cm canvas, easel, brushes, paints, aprons, music and a great atmosphere where you can create to your heart’s content.

Guiding and Not Instructing

Once again, we’re only going to guide you, we’re not going to instruct you – show you how to do it, not what to do. If you want to do it your own way, then feel free. You can interpret our guidance in any way you like. If you want to change the colours to suit your home décor, then feel free to do so. We think though that the glazed monochrome simplicity is what makes this painting. 

The event starts at 10.30 am but arrive around 15 minutes early. Grab a seat, grab a cuppa and grab an easel. We start at 10.30, and will definitely by finished by 16.30. Westbury Arts Centre doesn’t have a bar, but we will have a bottle of Vin Rouge and Vin Blanc to share at lunch.

Although we provide aprons, it might be worth wearing old clothes (just in case). Be warned that we will be using oil paints, and these take anything from a couple of days to a week to dry. It will be easy to take your painting home if you buy a frame. But if you don’t buy one then we have a way to protect your painting so that you can take it home.

Ticket Prices

Ticket prices of £65.00 for adults and £50.00 for under 18s include ALL materials required, tea, coffee, biscuits, and a Subway lunch. You can buy a frame for £20.00, but you don’t need to.
