Top 100 Games Reviewer

Nintendo Art Academy is a must buy for anyone with artistic aspirations if like me you have no idea how to transfer them on to canvas, this super program will teach you how, in a series of step by step simple to follow lessons each one building upon the last.
I have owned Art Academy for a little over 48 hrs and have completed 6 of the lessons, included in these are a simple pencil drawing of an apple a basic sunset using paint for the first time, an apple tree as seen on the Art Academy TV advert a still life lime, which I now look back at, amazed that I was able to paint such a life like image, the last painting lesson I attempted thus far was a large rolling wave thats full of movement I find it hard to think that I was able to create this image, I just can't stop looking at it..
I wish my so called art teaches at school could have instructed me in this simple method of painting and drawing I certainly would not have been driving a truck for a living today.
Art Academy certainly gets 10/10 from me as the best Nintendo DS program ever!
Must go now I've got to do lesson 7.

 Nice program

This a clever little program that teaches you how to create impressive pictures - from basic line drawings with a pencil through to adding light and shade with paints. It has its limitations, but it's certainly no gimmick and the skills you learn can be transferred to the real thing. One thing to note: if you have a dsi / dsi XL you may be better downloading the game off dsiware - it has the extra feature of being able to import photographs into the program and tracing them / painting them.

 good

I enjoyed this game but was quite dissapointed to find out that there was only ten lesson which i completed within the day, though i think it has imporved my skill and understanding of art.

 GREAT!!

I find it hard to copy exactly what the artist does, but it's fun trying && i think it is a really good game && could learn you to be more artistic.
