Surely you’ve heard of Twitch by now. It’s a popular site where you can watch people who are far better than you at video games play for your amusement. It’s filled with interesting personalities who play games like Dota 2 , Hearthstone , World of Warcraft , and… painting?
That’s right. Twitch partnered with Adobe and just rolled out a new section called Creative, and in celebration, they’re running every episode from Bob Ross’ “The Joy of Painting” for the duration of this week. This has nothing to do with gaming, but like most of the content on Twitch, it’s highly entertaining .
Users have already hopped on the Creative train and started streaming themselves doing all kinds of creative tasks like painting, woodworking , and 3D modeling. If you’re interested, you can watch it all — including the top-viewed channel featuring the Bob Ross marathon — on the new landing page.
Want to start streaming yourself working on something creative? Twitch introduced a new tagging system that lets you describe your particular creative activity, so be sure to use that. It will most certainly be interesting to see how users jump into this new Twitch feature going forward.
