Join Katie Baker of Baker Nest to create your own barn quilt. Barn quilts were first seen across America’s rural landscape hundreds of years ago, but it wasn’t until the early 2000s that we saw a revival of this folk art with a grassroots movement that began in Ohio. Barn quilts are a quilt block painted on wood and hung on barns that reflect the family’s heritage and celebrate the women’s role in agriculture through the beautiful quilt blocks they created. Barn quilts can bring that history directly into our homes and can be displayed proudly from a family room, a kitchen, or a backyard gathering place. Katie will walk you through creating your own unique barn quilt on a wooden pallet square! The class will offer several different patterns to choose from and many different paint colors from Fusion Mineral Paint. Come relax and paint with your quilty friends!

You’ve seen him before: he’s the quiet, soft-spoken guy with the fuzzy afro hair, painting mountains and trees with big brushes in a matter of seconds. Bob Ross is public television’s most beloved personality. This docu-story reveals the personal life of Bob Ross through the loving accounts of close friends and family, childhood photographs, and rare archive footage – what you know: his unwaivering dedication to wildlife for example, and what you don’t know: Bob Ross’ straight hair, his fascination with fast cars, and so much more. You’ll see rare film clips of Bob Ross with mentor William Alexander, and the very first rough-cut “Joy of Painting” episode. And you’ll learn how one little TV commerical to advertise local painting classes slowly turned this gentle-mannered fellow from simple beginnings into a viral phenomenon that continues to allow millions around the world to realize their dream of becoming an artist. Bob Ross: The Happy Painter is a 60-minute film presented in three parts: The Man, The Television Artist, and His Legacy.
