I am excited to share my inaugural Masterclass called COMPOSE with you online and to thus make it accessible wherever you may be.


This is a long format masterclass suited for people who wish to do deep focussed work towards

  1. Making paintings emote what the artist feels. Despite this topic being ripe for extreme abstraction, we will limit the inaugural batch to impressionistic realism and will push to adopt direct watercolors as a method.
  2. Generating a tool kit for individual artists to pursue a deeper study even after the workshop ends.

Examples of Uma’s style which she will lecture and use as guide style – One, Two, Three


$700 + Paypal fees (4 x 90 minutes of small class instruction + 2 day workshop)

How I arrived at the price point:
My 2-day workshops for 12 attendees cost $350
My weekly classes for 6 attendees cost $300 for 300 minutes of instruction.
COMPOSE, with 360 minutes of total weekly instruction + workshop would ideally cost = $360 + $350 = $710


90 minute classes followed by a 2 day workshop.
