This will be 4 classes of 2 hours each (total 8 hours) and will be conducted over Zoom - adults or children above 12 years can join.

Pratima Bharti, a state award winning madhubani artist will guide you with the process and techniques during the workshop. 

Class 1: Different types of borders. Practise of human figures
Class 2: Practise of trees, leaves, flowers
Class 3: Practise of animals, fish, birds
Class 4: Final painting update - traditional Kohbar

We will be learning the basics of Madhubani and also painting a traditional Kohbar painting. KOHBAR painting has traditionally been done in the Maithil culture to bless a newlywed couple.Originally the painting depicts a symbolic image of the lotus, the bamboo grove, fishes, birds and snakes in union. These images represents fertility and love of life

(In each class a bit of the final painting will also be made using the elements learned in that class. Please note the focus of the masterclass is more practice and not so much completing the painting. We will not be able to complete this painting during the workshops and the idea is to equip you with the knowledge to be able to work on this painting on your own as well.)

Materials that you will need:

  • A4 Size plain paper (a couple of extra sheets to practice sketching)
  • Poster colors (preferred, if you don’t have access to poster colors, you can use acrylic colors)
  • Brushes (size 0 to size 4/5), water and palette for mixing
  • Black pen for outlines 
  • Pencil and rubber for sketching

     We hope you can join us to support the arts and artists.

     Terms and Conditions:

    • Details to join the zoom call and a calendar invite will be sent on Fridays, a day before the workshops once we receive payment (please don't select the option for COD).
    • The workshops are attended by beginners as well as others who may already be acquainted with art hence, we will keep a pace that everyone is comfortable with.
    • We will share a recording of the workshop after the workshop, so even if you miss anything please don't worry as you can still follow again from the recording. We will keep the recordings for a week, please download after the workshop.
    • The artists mostly speak in Hindi, Memeraki team will be moderating and translating.
    • Workshop will be conducted over Zoom. If you don't already use Zoom, please download the zoom app on your phone or laptop (easier to sit on a desk with a laptop or with the phone on a stand so you can see the artist paint and follow at the same time and so that the artist can also see you painting. Please sit in a well-lit place)
    • Please test audio and video on zoom. Please stay on mute during the workshop so that everyone can hear the artist, please unmute anytime you wish to ask a question. We may also request you to switch off video at some points as the locations where the artists are sometimes don’t have good bandwidth (we have tested and it works fine usually)
    • We will also create a WhatsApp group for easy communication on the day of the class. The group will be deleted a couple of days after the class. Please also join our Facebook group to keep in touch with us and other participants
