Tanya Purdy is a Certified Ross Instructor At Happy Little Painter

 Tanya received her (CRI) Certified Ross Instructor certificate in March of 2022. She learned the Bob Ross Wet-on-Wet technique under the instructor Nic Hankins at The Bob Ross Workshop in New Smyrna Beach Florida.

   Tanya travels around Central Florida teaching her classes at art galleries, art centers and community centers. Currently she is teaching at:


NOMA Gallery

Silver Springs Shores Community Center

Betty's Creative Studio

Chelsea Art Center

  Each class is taught in a step by step fashion with Tanya teaching you Bob Ross' wet-on-wet technique. She will teach you how to paint happy little trees and almighty mountains just like Bob did on TV.

   All supplies are included (except for paper towels each student must bring a roll) in her 4 hour class. Sometimes class is over early. Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are encouraged.  

  If you are a seasoned artist or a total beginner with not painting experience this class provides a supportive and encouraging environment for all.

Students must me 16 or older to attend. 

Bob once said,

"You do not have to be blessed by Michelangelo at birth to be a pretty good painter.

You can do this."

Bob was right!

At the end of class everyone is smiling big and proud of their masterpieces.

"The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything.

As long as you believe."
