The Adventurous Bear - Amar Soni's Story for the #6FrameStoryChallenge

Amar Soni chose one of the readymade narratives for his story. In the story, not only is the bear an adventurous kind, he also has a dream about visiting Pluto. Does his wish come true? Find out in the story below.
"I signed up for the #6FrameStoryChallenge to expose myself in the field of visual education. Pratham Books is a national organization and it provides the opportunity and gives the platform to artists on a national and international level. From the beginning I opened myself to learn and understand the pedagogy and how can I play my role for the "learning through Art". Pratham Books is doing an admirable job for the education of children."


(Amar Soni tells us more about himself and his work : "My qualification (MA Drawing and Painting), family environment and experience in the field of art illuminate me to work to create a bridge between children and young people through the medium of art, widening their horizons and helping them understand the world they live in through art. Conceptualizing, designing and illustrating are my areas of interest. Translating the textual dimension of the project into a visual one through diverse media such as drawing and painting, illustration and graphic design is my strength. I approach all projects with a combination of cultural understanding, imaginative thinking, research, improvisation and questioning. My educational background comprises of higher studies in design and art. My experience in the field includes teaching, graphic design and research. I have participated in many national and international workshops and exhibitions of painting". You can follow his work here : http://artistamarsoni.blogspot.in)
