As an art teacher, it is critically important that my students are able to engage with the subject matter in as many ways possible. That is why this year I want to introduce Arts Attack curriculum into my classroom. Arts Attack Publications offers the most comprehensive video-based art curriculum available - teaching the art elements and principles, drawing techniques, media exploration, self-expression, multi-cultural art, and art history and artist appreciation. Arts Attack uses a developmental/sequential approach to teaching art that ensures that students are able to understand and properly engage with the subject given their specific grade level.

Art is an important part to a well-rounded educational experience. For many students, it their only opportunity to express themselves and create. This curriculum helps foster and sparks creativity in the classroom which is one of my core tenets as an art teacher. It would mean the world to my students and I if you were able to invest in our fundraiser. Every investment, regardless of size brings this amazing opportunity one step closer to our classroom. Even if you are not able to contribute, please consider sharing this on your social media accounts to help spread the word. Thank you so much for all of your help and support!

Here is the breakdown of our goal of $670.73 for Arts Attack

Actual fees will be calculated and collected on a per transaction basis, therefore total amounts may vary once the fundraiser ends. Calculated fees consist of a 10% sourcing fee, 5% fulfillment & labor fee and 3% processing fee.

If we do not meet our goal...

I will try to purchase as much of their curriculum as possible with the funds raised.

5th grade teacher, Woodland Hills Elementary Charter for Enriched Studies

Thank you for visiting this page, set up to help provide quality art instruction to 28 wonderful 5th graders.

Art is ESSENTIAL for all human beings, but especially kids, allowing them to create, experiment, and problem-solve, and giving them opportunities to de-stress and build self-esteem.

Arts Attack was developed by a studio art teacher with 30 years experience in teaching elementary school children. The products that I have seen created by children using this program are extraordinary, and I can't wait to share the experience with my class.

Thank you for bringing art to my classroom!

The Woodland Hills Elementary School was built in the 1920s as a two room bungalow on San Miguel street by Woodland Hills founder Victor Girard. The school was known as Girard Elementary according to Harvey Parkinson, 65, who attended the school then.

We have some of the best teachers in the area who's dedication to the students and our community are unmatched. Our school would not function without the help of everyone, especially our fabulous and selfless support staff. We are committed to our local neighborhood and you can find all the information about how to join our school. We are proud that all the hard work and dedication has paid off as we have been recognized as a leading school in the area. We work hard to provide all our students a great environment and can see how our school day is structured.
