Art Attack Kids TV Show

Updated on July 5, 2012

Art Attack is a kids tv programme on CiTV

Art Attack is a programme on CiTV in the UK, CiTV is a kids tv channel which shows kids content programmes at appropriate times for kids to tune in.

Art Attack begun 12 years ago and fastly became a hit with kids of all ages. Obviously, as the title of this programme says it is a show showing kids how to produce amazing art projects at home without the need for adult supervision.

Although the show is aimed primarily at kids from the ages of 5-16 it is also one of those programmes that adults quite enjoy watching too, especially those of us who are interested in arts and crafts as i am as some of the tricks and tips which are shown for creating various art effects are excellent and handy to know.

Neil Buchanan is the guy who presents Art Attack. Amazingly enough Neil isn't an artist but a musician although all of the projects shown on the programme are his ideas and it is him that shows the kids how to put them into practice with the use of video and step-by-step instructions, indeed he produces some really nice artwork.

Neil has 2 young children of his own who he uses to test each of his ideas before presenting them on Art Attack so he knows that everything he shows will be a big hit with his audience.

Here are some Art Attack links

Each of these links will take you to an Art Attack, the 1st link in the list will take you to the official Art Attack website and has loads of fun art projects for your child/children or Grandchildren which will keep them engrossed for ages. The rest of the links will take you to individual Art Attack projects that your child will love making that are all on the official Art Attack website.

There are lots of Art Attack interactive software available on Amazon

Art Attack products such as fully interactive CD-ROMS and DVD's and various special effects art stuff which kids will enjoy using on their own art projects.My 12 year old daughter Bobbi has several of these Art Attack CD-ROMS which she recommends to you saying "Art Attack is her favourite thing to do on her computer"

Art Attack projects can be found on Youtube too

Search Youtube for Art Attack projects for your child to try themselves at home. Kids of all ages will love making the projects which are shown on Art Attack as they are not the usual run of the mill art projects that you might expect.

Will You Tell Your Children About Art Attack - Art Attack Also Has An Interactive Web-Site

Art Attack is available as an interactive art centre on DVD and CD-ROM as well as having their own website which is packed full of art ideas and projects that your children will thoroughly enjoy using time and time again..i know this because my own child has quite a lot of Art Attack products which she recommends to all of her friends, i have to say that these products for me have been some of the best purchases i have ever made for any of my children and worth their weight in gold. My daughter in fact was the one who told me to make this lens which in my eyes just goes to show what a great thing Art Attack is.

Will you be buying Art Attack products for your own children?

See results

This lens has been made due to my 12 year old daughter Bobbi who recommended that i write a lens telling people about Art Attack.

Bobbi reckons that everyone with kids or Grandkids of their own will want to thank me for telling them about Art Attack...it will be interesting for both Bobbi and myself to see which of you will leave a comment and what the comment will say.

We thank you in advance and hope you enjoyed viewing this lens...oh, please don't forget to rate this lens too...Much appreciated.

Please add your name to my guestbook and leave me a comment about the contents of this lens please.

      For everyone that wants to view the OLD Art Attack website, you need to go to the Wayback Machine (part of the Internet Archive). Here is the link directly to the Art Attacks (crafts) menu.

      i love art attack its so fun to whach and make stuff from the show but, sometimes its hard to find stuff like things you wont to make, like the camra thing. Also it really helps you if u got a little brother/sister, that likes looking though your stuff then art attack gives u great ways how to hide your diarys and all that

      I Love Art Attack!! But It Seems like Disney Channel has been redoing the whole series.. I've been trying to find the old website of Art Attack for several times but have no hope.. I tried the old URL " www.artattack.co.uk " but it keeps on leading me to the Disney Channel Page :'( The old website has a bunch of great art products and it has so many cool and creative one.. I've watched Art Attack for about 8 years already and there are so many arts.. It would be such a shame if all the art products on the website are gone, so please if any body knows the old website or where to find the artworks then please reply because the old art attack is the best and the disney one will never be as good.. :(

      Your link to Neil's Official Art Attack website automatically goes to a "disney art attack" website. Sooooooo frustrating. I love Neil's ideas and are kid friendly, most of my students are visual learners. Do you now of a way to get around the "disney art attack" or am i plan out of luck. I tried youtube but they only have a few episodes. I'm doing a unit on Ancient Greece and am trying to remember some of his art ideas.:(

      By the looks of other comments, I'm not the only one being redirected by disney. Curse you disney. :)

      I don't know exactly which episode, but I remember that in one episode had a pirate with wooden leg, and another had a Scottish bagpipe. Both have wonderful music, and I would like to know the name of the songs and who compose them.

      I've never seen this show but it sounds wonderful. When I was a child in the 50's, I loved to watch "Learn to draw with John Nagy" and I got several of his products for Christmas Gifts. He left a lasting impression on me.
