Dr. Suess’ birthday – The Cat and the Hate PAINT ALONG! (virtual event)

March 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Information provided by Painting with Jesse Facebook page.

Come celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday as I walk you step by step in drawing and painting “The Cat in the Hat”! I’ll walk you through the entire process, no experience is necessary.

This event is open to all ages, but please be aware that the process is complex and will be difficult for young kids. Patience is required and we take our time with the process.

We’ll be drawing & painting for APPROXIMATELY 2.75 hours.

I’ll be teaching you how to draw completely from scratch for those of you that would like to challenge yourselves a bit.

I’ll also be providing stencils for the the painting and you’ll find these under the discussion board for this event starting Sunday, Feb. 21st. You’ll be able to download the stencils from there.

Recommended supplies:
  • A basic pencil and eraser or basic dark piece of chalk to draw with. You can also use water color pencils.
  • Acrylic paints (or something to paint/color with):
  • Colors: dark blue for the background (I used Pthalo blue for the original but any dark blue will work). For the fish you can use peach or pink. I used a combination of peach and pink to get the in between color.
  • Blow dryer. To help speed up the drying process in between steps.
  • Canvas: I’ll be painting on a 16″ by 20″ but almost any size will do. If you don’t have a canvas use whatever you have; drawing paper, canvas board, wood, etc.
  • Paint brushes:I use all synthetic bristle brushes for this painting in the following sizes/type; one 2″ Flat brush, 1″ Flat brush. One #8 Flat brush, one #5 Filbert, a #3 Round brush, and a #0 Round brush.

The brush selection is a suggestion. If you have anything close you’ll be fine.

Misc supplies:

  • paper towels
  • a plate or two to use as palettes
  • a cup to hold the water and the brushes.
  • Optional is an easel and an apron.We are painting at 2pm Pacific (west coast time) so please check your local time zone for the equivalent. Once you indicate on the event that you’re planning on attending you will get an updated start time for your time zone. The session will be broadcast here on Facebook live FOR FREE.
  • Be here on the Painting with Jesse page and you’ll see the video start at the top.
  • You should also get an alert when I start the video. I usually start about 10 mins early to give everyone an opportunity to find the video before we start the session.
