I gave an art-talk at UMFK today and someone asked where I learned to draw.
This video is from the 1960’s. I got a Jon Gnagy “Learn to Draw” kit when I was elementary-school-age. It had pencils and erasers and an instruction book.
I also have to credit the Caribou Public Schools. I remember encouragement from my fourth grade teacher Miss Ring
I told the art-talk group that Jon Gnagy was a precursor to Bob Ross. I don’t think they knew who Bob Ross was either.
Tim Gagnon is from Washburn, Maine, and lives in Castle Hill.
He may be this generation’s Bob Ross.
