Hope Blakely

Hope Blakely Instructing
Hope Blakely began her painting journey in 2012 when she started following along with Bob Ross through his popular TV show, Bob Ross – The Joy of Painting. Fast forward 5 years and she decided to take her painting passion to the ultimate level, the Bob Ross Company Instructor Certification course, spending 3 weeks in Florida working alongside people with the same enthusiasm and passion for the Ross wet-on-wet painting method. On her return to Colorado, Hope began teaching people how to paint happy clouds and trees and, after receiving her floral certification, how to paint florals using the Bob Ross style. Hope Blakely’s goal is to help everyone experience the relaxing benefits and the joy of painting along with Bob Ross.
