Bob Ross is known for his soothing voice, curly fro and gleeful artistic style.  This Wednesday, June 25, you are invited to paint along to his beloved instruction at the Duluth Art Institute's (DAI) spring fundraiser.

"He's such a beloved figure, not only for the art community, but for everybody," DAI Curator Anne Dugan said.  "And I think that gets at what the Duluth Art Institute is.  Because we aren't some elite white box space.  We really are trying to get to the fact that art is accessible, art can be engaged with by everybody."

The event is open to everyone at all skill levels.  If you love happy trees and squirrels, you'll love painting along to the dulcet tones of the master himself.

The event will also feature special celebrity artists to paint along with the rest of the group. The works created by Chris Monroe, Adam Swanson, Lee Englund and Brian Barber will then be auctioned off to help the DAI continue programing.

"These are very accomplished artists in our community who have styles very divergent of Bob Ross," Dugan said. "So, it will be interesting to see if my Bob Ross painting will be anywhere similar to Chris Monroe's."

The event is $30 for members and $60 for non-members.  The Price includes supplies and light refreshments.  The money raised will go back into DAI programing.

The Bob Ross Paint-A-Long is Wednesday, June 25 at 6:30 p.m. in the Underground Theater at the Duluth Depot.
