About the Arts Attack Program
The goal of the program is to teach every child how to express themselves through art. We help teachers who do and don't have experience teaching art. Our curriculum helps students learn the principles of art and drawing as well as study the art of other artists, cultures, and historical periods
Students learn best when they're excited about a subject. Arts Attack lessons have been selected through the years to work with teachers and students within a classroom setting.
