Painting Elephants - Bulbul Sharma

From Standing Room Only, 2:48 pm on 22 May 2016

All over India this year, children in remote villages are painting elephants. Not the real thing, but half size fibreglass artworks. Helping them use art material they may never have seen before is high profile Indian artist Bulbul Sharma. She's been commissioned by the NGO Elephant Family to work with village children on the elephants, to help raise awareness of threats to the population through habitat loss and poaching.
