TONY HART (1925-2009)

I woke up this morning to the sad news that Tony Hart has died at the age of 83. I grew up watching his art programmes and was always impressed and inspired with his speed and skill at using anything he had to hand to create a picture.

I'm sure watching Tony Hart and Morph for half an hour a week contributed to the art education of many children of a certain age, myself included and I thank him for it.

Rest in Peace Tony, at least Mr Bennett will stop pestering you now.
