Another popular children's programme from the RTÉ Archives to coincide with the launch this week of RTÉjr. In the children's programme 'Let's Draw', Bláithín Ni Chnaimhin shows children how to draw pictures from blobs, smudges and squiggles.
Let's Draw was a bi-lingual programme in which Bláithín switches effortlessly from English to Irish throughout the programme as she shows the audience how to paint or create pictures from blobs, smudges and squiggles.
This episode of 'Lets Draw' was broadcast on 3 April 1968.
