Very creative, educational and entertaining
2 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Words cannot describe how much I loved this show. Although I was not creative in the slightest when it came to art, my sister was though, I took an interest in it. And you know what? I miss it, it was a truly wonderful show that I prefer watching over any show airing right now.

I for one loved how educational Art Attack was. For example we would be taught to paint and such, something simple and effective for me and others to understand, and all these skills were incredibly creative and fun. The sets are colourful, and the music is memorable. The writing is simple yet entertaining and easy to understand. Neil Bacchanan is a wonderful presenter, who expresses a deep interest in what he is presenting, and that is important to me.

Overall, really entertaining and creative, if you are a young art enthusiast this is a must-watch. 10/10 Bethany Cox
