Hello!  Welcome to my Website.  My name is Dore Fay Strock and I am a newly Certified Bob Ross Instructor.  I just completed my Certification for Landscape in January 2018.  I have been doing Bob Ross paintings for 3 years before I decided that I wanted to teach others the Bob Ross method of painting!

I have always loved art!  Anything I can do with my hands I love – from cooking, baking, gardening, painting – oil, acrylic, water colors – clay/pottery, refurnishing old furniture and so much more.  It just makes me happy!

I have worked for Paint Nite as an Artist for a year and then began oil painting and loved it!  I would love to show you the joy of painting in the Bob Ross style – you know, those Happy Little Trees!  You will have fun and you will be amazed at your finished oil painting!

Please join me for an art class!  Please see the tab title “Art Classes” for a current list of Bob Ross art classes in the area.   First time students will receive $5 off their first paint class!  Student Appreciation Reward – 50% off every tenth painting class you take!

I also do acrylic paint parties so please check out the tab titled “Acrylic Paint Parties” for more information!

Come and join me in “The Joy of Painting”!  Hope to see you soon!
