Chris Taylor is a Certified Bob Ross Instructor® in Muncie, Indiana. As a mentor to Chris, Bob would exchange letters with the budding artist and whenever he was in town he would try to meet with Chris – often inviting him to the television studio to watch the filming of The Joy of Painting®.
To this day, Chris speaks fondly of the support Bob showed him. While he of course encouraged Chris’s artistic skill, more importantly Bob supported Chris in finding his life’s passion.
