Fifty students at a middle school in Abilene, Texas dressed up like painter Bob Ross to have a special art class last week. It was all the brainchild of their teacher, Brady Sloane.
"I was really wanting to reward my students in a meaningful way and provide an enriching art related experience but just also honor the hard work they've been doing," said Sloane.
The students, while dressed like the famous painter, were able to follow along with one of his videos. During the lesson, students learned sponge brush techniques, landscape painting, alla prima, as well as practicing working at the easel. Oh, the tiny trees!
