WATCH: Draw along with Martin Brown

Martin not only draws, but regales us with grimy tales of body lice, and poop-tastic Aylesbury Ducks, and champions the plight of lesser spotted animals. Kids – big and small – can learn to master the art of drawing, while picking up lots of animal facts along the way. Creative and funny fun for everyone!
