Though The Joy of Painting, a television series hosted by Bob Ross that taught millions to paint trees, mountains and "happy little clouds," went off the air in 1994, the appeal of tapping one's own creativity with expert supervision to create a work of art remains strong. Cornelia Ullman recognized that urge, and as owner of Rembrandt All You Can Art (5200 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, 274-0811; www.rembrandtallyoucanart.com), she derives her life's work from fulfilling it.

  "It's surprising how many people have the desire to get that creativeness out of them," Ullman says.

  At Rembrandt All You Can Art, students pay $35 for a two-hour class, which includes all materials. Under the step-by-step instruction of a local artist, they bring life to a lightly pre-sketched or blank canvas while learning about shading, perspectives and color theory. The classes are not as intimidating as they might sound, Ullman says. After a few hours of painting, everyone walks out with a dry work of art suitable for hanging or giving as a gift.

  "When you come here, you have a relaxing, enjoyable time, but you still leave at the end of the night with a good outcome," Ullman says.

  To create an atmosphere conducive to relaxation, Ullman encourages students to bring beverages and food. The studio provides glasses, ice buckets and wine openers.

  "It's neat to see everybody walk out happy," Ullman says. "It's a very happy business."
