3-way switch conversion to light fixture

I have a 3-way switch in the kitchen and in the garage that controls one light fixture inside the garage. I want to convert the garage switch to a second light fixture. So, when I turn the kitchen switch on, there will be two light fixtures on in the garage. How do I make the change ?

I'm a bit unclear as to what you want. You said what you want to happen when you turn the kitchen switch on, but what do you want to happen when you turn the garage switch on? Will this work exactly as now, except for two lights instead of one?

since your 2 three-ways are connectd by the "travelers" you cant set this circuit up where only one switch works 2 lights. if this is not a problem for you and you dont mind if both switches work the 2 lights, then simply identify the neutral leaving the existing light fixture, connect this wire to your new fixture "hot", and complete your neutral circuit by connecting to the "neutral" side of your new light, then back to the neutral bar in panel.
hope this helps.
