PBS Kansas Passport

From 1983 to 1988, Bob filmed The Joy of Painting in a makeshift studio in the L.L. Ball home near the campus of Ball State University. The Bob Ross Experience is an hour-long program documenting the transformation of his original studio into an intimate museum experience designed for those he inspired.
