Weird Twitch Communities That Have Nothing to Do with Gaming

6 of 7

The art community bleeds into various other communities on Twitch. From cross-stitching, to drawing to sculpting, the art community has a wide reach on Twitch but no community is as strange as the painting community. 

Back when Twitch first introduced the Twitch Creative section on their website, something strange happened. There was a marathon of Bob Ross's syndicated show, The Joy of Painting. Every single one of the 403 episodes was aired back to back for 8.5 days. Viewers showed up in the chat and showed that there was an audience for communities besides gaming.

This was where it really began for all of these weird communities.

If you're still looking for painting content or maybe just some Bob Ross, you can find something in the painting community.
