Learn to Paint Happy Little Trees® Like Bob Ross®!

Sipping N' Painting Hampden is the only paint and sip studio in metro Denver with two Certified Bob Ross Instructors® (CRI) on staff!  Our owner, Nancy Cronk, graduated from the Bob Ross® Company's CRI program in Florida with a certification to teach landscapes exactly the way Bob did! A few year's later, Nancy's student Gina graduated from the Bob Ross® Certification program as well!

Certified Ross Instructors® are not employees of the Bob Ross® company (BRI). Instructors are certified with a curriculum that Bob designed himself in 1986. Our goal is to give you the knowledge, the skills and the confidence you need to experience the Joy of Painting for yourself!


Certified Bob Ross® classes are taught a few times each month. They are 6 hours long and include basic instruction in "wet-on-wet" oil painting technique, using Bob Ross® licensed materials. Classes are kept small for maximum instruction assistance. Sign up for your certified Bob Ross® oils class through our calendar today! (See samples at bottom.)
