Tony Hart RIP

Tony Hart in better daysMore sad news: in the early hours of this morning artist and TV presenter Tony Hart died peacefully, aged 83. Back in October I posted news that his health was failing after two strokes and that he couldn't even sign his name, let alone draw (CLICK). He was awarded two Baftas during nearly 50 years of appearing on a wide variety of art programmes, and in 1998 he won a lifetime achievement award. Generations of children and adults benefited from his entertaining yet educational approach to art.
