Introduction to Art
The Introduction to Art Curriculum is a smaller version of our Arts Attack Program. This program has 8 products, one for each grade K-6 plus a 7-8 combo. Each grade/unit includes a 1-year subscription for 12 of the Arts Attack lessons, and provides the classroom teacher, art specialist or parent volunteer a low cost ($179) introduction to the (more comprehensive) Arts Attack Complete curriculum. To help minimize your planning and preparation, a 30-student optional art media supply kit customized for each grade level is also available.
These courses can be taught by teachers or parents with little or no art or art education background, as well as by those with considerable art education training – achieving exceptional results in both cases.

Introduction to Art Online Curriculum
The Kindergarten program is an ideal introduction to art for the Kindergarten student. Providing a strong introduction to the art fundamentals (the elements of art and basic techniques), it also places strong emphasis on drawing technique, self-expression, and the great masters. Several of the lessons are based on children’s literature, providing lots of opportunity to connect with the language arts. Lessons such as Butterfly and Cocoon and The Four Seasons offer a simple connection to science, while Patchwork Animals and Old King Cole are based on children’s literature. Artists studied include Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, and Vincent van Gogh.
