The Secret of Drawing from the BBC: Videos

I am posting these as much for me as to share with you!

Apparently this week I am becoming a vlog site!  I have not had time to review but they looked so interesting . . .   “This four part series, presented by Andrew Graham-Dixon, explores how drawing has shaped our lives. Join him to discover the history of drawing and its relevance to the modern world.”  On YouTube.
