Bob Ross’ The Joy of Painting Is Now Free Online: Watch Season 1

Aspiring painters, take note. As of today, you can watch Season 1 of The Joy of Painting, the PBS show hosted by painter Bob Ross. The educational show first hit the airwaves in January, 1983, and ran through May, 1994. In each 30-minute episode, Bob would complete a painting, while explaining in a soothing, hushed voice various techniques for creating landscape oil paintings.

You can watch Episode 1 of Season 1 above. Here Bob “introduces us to his ‘Almighty’ assortment of tools and colors, tells us that anyone can paint, and creates a landscape of a forest path just after a rain shower.”

Below, you can watch a playlist of 13 episodes. For some reason, the playlist starts with Episode 2, then flips back to Episode 1, and, from there, things unfold sequentially, straight through to Episode 13. #Free Art Education. Enjoy.
