Art Attack is a British children's television series about art. It is one of ITV's longest running children's programmes, running since 1989, and has been presented throughout by Neil Buchanan. The show typically lasts thirty minutes and involves Neil producing three or four works of art, taking the viewer through its production step by step. He often introduces a particular segment by showing the finished piece, then the litany "Come have a look at this!!". When a piece involves painting or gluing or anything else that requires time to dry or set, he puts the piece — with a few slops of paint or such over it — to one side and says, "and here's one I made earlier", or "and then you'll have something that looks like this". His works are designed so children can follow his technique and make their own copy of his piece, and they are generally pictures with some quirk added to them, e.g. 'Lolly Lettering' (a type of calligraphy using lolly sticks) and using cardboard squares as paint palette knives to create a painting of a ship. In several episodes he makes something that included lots of torn-up newspaper and papier-mâché (using a solution of PVA glue and water), like the 'Dinosaur Banks'. Once he has finished explaining his work, Neil says the famous "Try it yourself" line to the viewers. they also shoy it in disney channel of mex LATIN AMERICA.
