Brenda Will Kidera Fine Art


I am fortunate to be able to combine my love of painting, teaching and traveling by offering workshops around the country. I’ve been conducting workshops and teaching classes for many years, covering a variety of subject matter and mediums, and working with artists of all levels. Step-by-step demonstrations, discussions on design and technique, and one-on-one interaction are integral parts of these classes.

The workshop will take the fear out of painting birds by logically and methodically breaking down the painting process. Designed for both beginners and more experienced artists! Paying close attention to detail, learn how to render the form of a shore bird convincingly, from its feathers to its feet. Learn new techniques and color theory. Demonstrations, step-by-step instruction and one-on-one attention will be provided. I will supply reference materials.

Brenda is a fabulous workshop instructor, exceptionally well prepared with a thorough knowledge of her subject. She presented frequent demonstrations which were accompanied by wonderful staged samples of her work. Brenda created a warm and enjoyable learning environment and gave freely of herself as she provided multiple assessments of students’ work. The workshop was not only a sellout but an overwhelming, unanimous success judging from the comments we received from the students.

The class and instructor were excellent.  Loved the instructor – very organized, comfortable, cheerful, pleasant, friendly.  Much knowledge shared on subject including info on taking good photographs to use for subject reference.  Information was very clear and presented in an easy to understand method.  It was easy to follow the instructor and I didn’t feel rushed or stressed.  Very  hands on with students.  Best class I have taken.

I loved watching her paint, watching how she handled water on her brush and on the paper—I learned so much from her technique.  She is very encouraging and gives positive suggestions.  Her explanations as she worked were very helpful.

Wonderful presentation and great knowledge.  Layered technique is easy to understand.  I wasn’t sure I’d be able to paint portraits, but this class has shown me that I do have the potential!
