We are pleased to have nationally recognized artist Brenda Kidera in this one day workshop.

Brenda Kidera has been a professional artist and fine art instructor for over 20 years. She is a signature juried artist member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, Potomac Valley Watercolorists, Washington Society of Landscape Painters, Society of Animal Artists and International Guild of Realism. Her award-winning work has been featured in numerous publications and exhibited nationally. Brenda teaches classes and workshops year-round. She works in oil, watercolor and acrylic and works in a variety of subject matter: landscape, wildlife, portrait and still life. 

Join us for this popular, fun, workshop. Learn how to work with pen and ink with watercolor washes to produce small, lively, casual paintings. This class is great for those of you who already enjoy or would like to learn travel journaling. Reference materials will be supplied. Learn how to make even poor travel photos into beautiful small color sketches. There will be step by-step instruction, demonstrations, and one-on-one interaction. Knowledge of elementary watercolor is helpful. 

If you have any questions about the class, please call Brenda: 410-489-0431 or email her: brendakidera@
