We’ve moved!!

Painting with Rita is now located in OCEANSIDE, CA – North San Diego County!  We are painting, and we’d love to have you join us!  Call 916-767-9876 or email [email protected] to schedule your session today!

Yes!  Rita of Painting with Rita, your local Certified Bob Ross Instructor®, and her husband, Mark, have moved back to San Diego County, and we are now scheduling classes!

We greatly appreciate all our customers in northern California – and we want you to know that we are not abandoning you!  You can still paint with Rita online via Zoom, and we are already scheduled to do another Virtual Bob Ross® Paint-Along in November 2022 with PBS – KVIE – so be sure to keep an eye on my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PAINTINGWITHRITA), my website, and your Sacramento PBS channel for more information on how to register for that!


Rita is certified by Bob Ross, Inc.® and loves teaching the Bob Ross Wet-on-Wet Technique® in both Landscape and Floral!  Let’s Paint Some Happy Trees and Happy Blossoms!  You can click here to check out these samples of Rita’s Landscape and Floral paintings.  (® = All Registered Trademarks of Bob Ross Inc.)

These days, Rita enjoys teaching private and semi-private (1-2 people) “Paint-Like-Bob” lessons, as well as ZOOM classes online for groups and those who prefer distance learning.

How About Acrylic Painting

In addition to teaching the Bob Ross Wet-on-Wet Technique®, Rita also continues to offer private acrylic painting classes in person for groups of 10 to 25 participants.  She also offers Zoom acrylic classes for larger groups.

To book a class, ask questions, or purchase any of Rita’s art, please call 916-767-9876 or email [email protected].

Farewell to our Paint & Sip events

We’re no longer offering “Paint & Sip” or “Wine & Paint” events at public venues.  My husband, Mark, and I want you to know how very grateful we are to all of our patrons – especially our frequent painters – and all our wonderful venues.  If it wasn’t for them, we would never have been able to paint with all of you.  It was so wonderful getting to know you, sharing with you the joyful and meditative experience that painting can be, and watching your creativity blossom.  And if you’re ever in San Diego/Oceanside, we invite you to join us for some Painting with Rita!
