Mr. Prasad Natarajan one of India’s leading wildlife artist who is featured in one of India’s top wildlife magazine visits Ekya School JP Nagar. He extensively travels all over the world to study the behavior of his subjects in their natural habitat. Gathering as much information possible through images and field sketches enables him to depict his subjects as accurately as possible.

His style of work is realism.
Students had a wonderful opportunity to interact with Mr. Prasad and got to know more details about wildlife drawings.

He explained in detail a step by step procedure to get a perfect painting. Students also spoke about the different features of the different birds they have seen.
