         BAA Spring Workshop

The Bethlehem Art Association Spring Workshop will be held on Saturday, April 4 from 9:30 am. to 4 pm. at the Delmar Presbyterian Church, 585 Delaware Ave., Delmar.  The workshop conductor will be watercolor artist and BAA member Ritvik Sharma. As a kid Ritvik was fascinated by impressionist painters of Europe and was drawn to Claude Monet and Pierre-August Renoir.  These masters inspired the love of landscape and people in paintings. To learn more about Ritvik and to see more of his paintings go to www.ritvikwatercolors.com  Ritvik will also be the presenter at the BAA March 19 monthly meeting.  This will give you a chance to get a preview of the wokshop.
