From time to time Bob invited friends and family to paint with him on his show 'The Joy of Painting'. Here you can see a collection of episodes featuring those guest painters.
Bob's son Steve was a frequent guest on 'The Joy of Painting'.
An old friend of Bob's Dana is one of very few guests who appeared more than once on the show.
John used to be one of Bob's instructors and Bob often tells the story when he took him aside and told him to 'stick to trees and leave portraits to someone else'.
