Product Description

Have you ever had an interest in art or wanted to learn how to draw and paint? Well now you can with the Art Academy software for the Nintendo DS system. Art Academy is a fun, interactive, and portable training software that will teach you how to draw and paint, much as you would learn in an art class. Art Academy offers simple, easy to understand art lessons that you can take at your own pace. You even have the ability to fast forward or rewind a step if you would like to view it again. Vince is your in-game art tutor and he will guide you through each new lesson, gradually introducing new concepts to you. Each new lesson builds upon concepts that you learned in previous lessons, complete with step by step examples. The software takes advantage of the Touch Screen on the Nintendo DS. Simply use the stylus like a real pencil or paint brush when creating a piece of art. The pencils, paintbrushes, color mixing, and paint dilution effects produce realistic results, and feel very natural. All of the skills learned in Art Academy can be applied to real-life artist's materials outside of the Nintendo DS environment. So what are you waiting for? There is no time like the present to start learning how to draw and paint with Art Academy.
  • Free Paint Mode allows the player to create works of art when ever and where ever they are inspired.
  • There are different types of Pencil and Brush types for the player to choose from when creating their art. This gives the player a lot of creative freedom when painting and drawing.
  • Paints are easily mixed on a painter's pallet to get the desired colors. They can also be diluted with water to adjust the color saturation. The player can even choose how much paint is on the brush at a given time.
  • The Gallery is an area where the player can frame and save all of the artwork they create. Gallery Images can be displayed in a slide show or viewed one at a time.
  • Art Academy includes all 10 of the lessons and tools from both Art Academy: First Semester and Art Academy: Second Semester, which were previously only available as Nintendo DSiWare™ downloads. Plus there are 10 Mini Lessons and over 80 motifs that the player can choose from to use as reference material when creating their art.
  • When playing Art Academy on the Nintendo DSi system, the player has the added feature of using the built in cameras to create reference material. The player can take a photo and save it into the gallery and then use it in Free Paint Mode.
  • The player can send the Demo lesson via the local wireless connection of their Nintendo DS to another Nintendo DS to be tried by another player.

The great thing about Art Academy is the lessons are actually real! No fake tips or instant correct on your art! One bad thing is the small screen. You will be amazed at the depth and creativity in which makes Art Academy one of the highest rated DS art game.

This game is great for people who like to draw and paint or would like to learn how to draw and paint. I always knew I was good at drawing, but I didn't know I was this good! Because of this game I am becoming an amazing Artist. This is a very accurate game. Vince, our art teacher in the game tells you "What you will learn here in this game can be applied in real life." I was a skeptic about his statement at first because I thought drawing or painting wont be the same on an actual canvas, but it really is! I was in shock when I went to purchase real art supplies like pencils and brushes and found that the 2B, 2H, and HB pencils existed out of the game. The graphics in this game are amazing it really feels like your drawing and painting on a canvas or a sheet of paper. Everything you do in the game you can do just as well when actually applying it in life. Although I love this game I would not recommend it to people who really have no hope at drawing (Such as my best friend:p) or anyone who doesn't have the patience or the dedication to learn. I'd say this game is for someone who already has a natural has a gift to be an Artist or has a great chance at getting really good. The artwork found in this game is really intense, it doesn't teach you how to draw step by step it just gives you a lot of information on how to be a better Artist. I'm sure anyone could master this though if their dedicated.

This game teaches you how to draw FANTASTIC! art with such ease.The lessons are easy to learn and they take a while but in the end its all worth it! There is also free draw mode (wich I use alot) you sketch out your pic with the pencil tool and then you can paint it in.This game has tought me alot about art and I really recommend it!

I may be a very skilled atist above many things but i thought "why not practice a little more?" "it couldent hurt right?" Although instead i got the training of my dreams not only for the "flipnote hatena" that I am so addicted to but in all manors of art.

This game is really neat :D People whine about not being able to go back to pencils after switching to paint, but do you really do that in real life. The lessons are neat. Ive made some amazing pictures :D The background music isn't loud and annoying like most games. I really wish there was a way to upload your pics to the computer :( But over all I give it a 10/10 :D

I've worked with plenty of different art mediums before, but I never really had the opportunity to work with digital tools due to monetary issues. Art Academy is a good substitute! The lessons are great for beginning artists, and for those looking to branch out to different styles that they normally wouldn't paint/draw in. If what someone said in another review is true, then I made the right decision in purchasing the DSi Ware version. I rather like being able to save what I paint to an SD card so I can later upload it to my online gallery. As stated earlier, the lessons are good, but the real fun comes with Free Paint mode where you can create your own images!

I bought the DSi Ware version, and it only has about 5 easy, quick lessons. Also, on the free-draw, I could never figure out what to draw. Oh and the extra lessons were terrible. The art instructor never helped me through the lesson. I think this game will be much better. It's improved a lot. I'd recomend this game than the DSi Ware one.
