In the seminar, three scholars — Mukesh Malla, Dr Yam Sharma, and Ganesh Kumar GC presented their paper on the same. The scholars elaborated the history of Nepali painting. They talked about the need of policies in national level; need to include art education in school level; use of the internet; entrepreneurship, encouragement, and self-respect for artists; and more for the promotion of Nepali painting worldwide.
