Discover and Sketch Mistletoe

By Christine Elder

Everyone knows the tradition of stealing a kiss under a mistletoe sprig during the holidays!

In this workshop, I'll teach you about the history and uses of native mistletoes and also their importance to wildlife.

I'll then lead you in a step-by-step demonstration of sketching and watercoloring some festive mistletoe leaves and fruits.

You can choose to send your watercolor painting as a holiday greeting card or frame it as a present for botanically-oriented friends or family!

Recommended Supplies
•Graphite pencil & black pen
•Opaque white media
•Watercolors and associated painting supplies
