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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it if you want to learn basics Nov. 14 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I went to school for Art. Several thousand dollars later, I'm still in debt from it- and I can't say I gained as much as I lost.

This game, for its price, teaches you the basics of many skills such as:
Crosshatching, layering, Highlights, use of different hardness' of pencils.

I really enjoyed this game as it leads you through visual tutorials, and then has you make your own piece of art. Yours will never be exactly the same as theirs, and yet I've been pleased with the result each time.

This is great for anyone interested in either refining their skills or learning from scratch. I really recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Competent, but not revelatory. April 26 2012

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It's a great series of lessons bundled up in easy steps. It covers a lot of the same sort of basics you'd expect from a first semester art class. If you're looking for an
art program, it's not a good fit. If you need something more advanced, it's not a good fit. If you want better resolution/handling, the stylus doesn't work well with so few
pixels. If any of these things sounds like you, I highly recommend picking up Colors 3DS.

But if you're just starting out and want to learn the basics, this is a good learning tool for you.
