Welcome to the Virtual Tony Hart exhibition; Drawings, pastels and prints. Tony Hart will feature in the childhood memories of many of our visitors as he appeared regularly on television in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Take Hart, Vision On and Hartbeat are just a few of his programmes in which he inspired (together with Morph) generations of children to love art and try out techniques for themselves – creating pictures from just a few lines.
