A great family show for arts & crafts enthusiasts!
2 August 2007 | by (Guelph, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Art Attack" was one of many kids' shows that I discovered on TVO in the 1990s, during my childhood. I quickly started to watch it regularly. The show ran for a long time, and I can't say I followed it throughout its entire run, but watched it a lot from around 1994 to 1995 or '96. I even tried some of the things taught in the show, but sometimes failed, having missed some instructions. Eventually, I stopped watching it, but can recall seeing it occasionally several years later.

The show was hosted by Neil Buchanan. Each episode featured segments where Neil was on a set, demonstrating arts & crafts projects to viewers (projects which would be referred to as "art attacks"), sometimes using small art supplies, and sometimes using gigantic ones for large projects on the floor! The show also featured segments with Neil outside, making a huge "art attack" on the ground, using various materials that one wouldn't usually use for art, as well as scenes featuring The Head, a living statue of a head (I remember three different versions), who made comments on Neil's "art attacks" and would often try it himself, sometimes failing miserably. Guests would also sometimes appear on the show to demonstrate their ideas.

For kids (and maybe certain others) who were interested in arts & crafts, "Art Attack" was a show not to be missed, as it could give them many great artistic ideas! The show could be very entertaining to watch as well, with a lot of humour, so while learning about arts & crafts, viewers could have some laughs along the way! It appears that it hasn't been very long since the demise of "Art Attack", and for those who want a perfect family art show, you should definitely check out some episodes if you can!
