This is our Elf on the Shelf: Bob Ross Painting Party.
Bob Ross is the best.
I grew up watching him almost daily as we didn’t have many channels on TV to watch and my mom would only let me watch one or two of the channels that we did have. I think Bob Ross came on after The Reading Rainbow.
I was amazed at how talented a painter he was. It was fascinating to watch him give instructions. He made painting look so easy—which if you have never tried oil painting, it is not nearly as simple as Bob makes it look!
I loved his happy attitude and many of his sayings still make me smile, “Every day is a good day when you paint.” or “Let’s build some happy little trees.”, and “Remember how free clouds are. They just lay around in the sky all day long.”.
Today, he is helping our elves learn how to paint a winter scene.
Pepper looks like he is doing fairly good.
Winter, his sister, doesn’t seem to be as gifted in the art of painting.
I’ve always wanted to attend a Bob Ross Painting party.
So, this is a favorite scene of mine.
It makes me want to set up a Bob Ross Painting Party with friends and/or family as well.
Supplies I think our elves used for this Elf on the Shelf: Bob Ross Painting Party
wire cutters to cut two paint brushes down into tiny ones.
Pepper and Winter still have on their clothes from our Jurassic scene yesterday.
Some additional random painting supplies.
How I think our elves set up this Elf on the Shelf: Bob Ross Painting Party
To see more details check out the video on this page.
It looks as though they pulled out my art case and set up the table and chairs and Bob right on top of it. I like the color it gives and how its coupling as a floor.
Bob Ross is elevated which is great because he is teaching the class.
Pepper and Winter have easels made out of what looks to be cardboard.
Their pallets and canvases are made out of cardstock paper.
They are holding miniature paint brushes which I think are just the smallest size of paint brush that came in a pack with the top cut off with wire cutters.
And they used paint colors to try to recreate Bob’s painting.
Behind them there are the paints they used, extra brushes, a paint brush holder, a few pallets of water colors, and a wood jointed mannequin that came from the art case. This serves to add more color and theme to the scene.
In comparison to Bob, neither of them did brilliantly overall though, they made a good attempt.
Pepper did the best and if there was a prize, he’d have won it.
What a fun day with our Elf on the Shelf Bob Ross Painting Party.
