Indian Summer – Bob Ross

Sunday 18th August

The Woolpack in Buckingham

Indian Summer is another full painting day using oil paints, and is a full Bob Ross painting. 

Indian Summer – You Don’t Need Skill, Just A Desire To Paint

Indian Summer - Bob RossThe Indian Summer, by Bob Ross epitomises the last hurrah of summer as autumn closes in. Autumn is coming and the leaves are changing to red, brown, orange and gold before they fall to the forest floor. The yellows, oranges and golds of the foreground foliage stand out beautifully against the dark greens and brown of the misty forest background. Where Autumn comes, Winter cannot be far behind, then comes the re-birth of Spring and Summer.

This full day event will be held in the Cote room at The Woolpack, Well Street, Buckingham, MK18 1EP – our normal venue of The Westbury Arts Centre being unavailable in August.

As well as our full day painting lessons in Milton Keynes, we also do painting evenings in Pubs and Bars.

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 on a large 40 cm x 80 cm canvas. Russell Collins, the resident artist will take you, step-by-step, through the 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.

The Bob Ross Technique

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.

The Bob Ross technique is a style of painting that requires the Bob Ross brushes and paints. You will need to follow the Bob Ross method to get the best possible picture though. There will be some opportunity to go off-piste, but following the Bob Ross process work’s best.

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. The Woolpack is a Pub and Restaurant and does have a bar.

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 up 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 £60.00 for adults and £45.00 for under 18s include ALL materials required, tea, coffee, and biscuits. Lunch is NOT included as The Woolpack is a restaurant with a tasty menu, you can bring your own lunch though. You can also buy a frame for £20.00, but you don’t need to.

A Paint Night Party is a social event first, and an art lesson second. It’s Fun Art set to music, not Fine Art done dull.
