Bio

Studio Thirty Eight, Ian (DOC) Bartlett, CRI, CRFI, aka dustyoldchips
I am a Certified Bob Ross Instructor, in Landscape and Florals, receiving my training and certification at the Bob Ross Art Workshop & Gallery in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, USA. I have continued my oil painting studies at the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda, Florida with Margaret Egli-Thomson, and Ron Sanders. I paint my original floral and landscape paintings using quality oil paints with attention to the principles of art.


In addition, to my oil painting I have explored textures and techniques in acrylics with Rani Kushwaha, and studied with Anne Armitage, exploring the wonderful art of colour pencil painting. I am also an active and creative woodworker, with a passion for rocking horses.


I truly believe that in each and everyone of us there is an artist waiting, for a creative opportunity, to be expressed.



News

From Studio Thirty Eight I offer:
  • HOBBY CLASSES
    These are mini workshops in the wet-on-wet oil painting technique. These workshops are often based on my own original designs or the designs of Bob Ross, Annette Kowalski or Gary Jenkins.
  • OPEN PAINTING CLASSES
    Artsy Thursday's and Creative Friday's give students the opportunity to paint their own paintings and have creative fun.
  • BUILD YOUR OWN WORKSHOP (BYOW)
    I provide a fun, creative environment, in my professional, bright, comfortable studio/classroom where friends who want to do something different; want to just get out; be creative and spent some fun quality time together can build their own workshop, an art class where they pick both the painting project and the day for their workshop.
