Summary: I am an adult and I like video games! There, I said it. I feel better. But, in truth this is not really a video game. Art Academy for the Nintendo DS is more of a learning title. But then, I've always wanted to learn to draw and paint.
Summary: This is a pretty interesting product and, in the hands of someone a bit more at home using the small screen of a DS to read, draw upon, and watch tutorials, it would be that much better. I grade this based on my own capabilities, so for me it was a bit bothersome.
Summary: I'm no artist... and after playing Art Academy for a few hours, I don't believe its my calling. With that said, going through the lessons was simple and entertaining. Its like an upgraded MS Paint with tutorials.
Summary: I cannot draw at all. I wish I could. That's why I bought Art Academy. The first lessons were for sketching in pencil. I drew a ball and then an apple, which I thought weren't bad. Then, came the tree in pencil and paint. That turned out well, also. Afterwards, the lessons became more difficult.
Summary: I am not new to painting and drawing and have really enjoyed this excursion! I found myself not believing what I had created on that tiny canvas! The zoom tool is good, but it should also zoom on the top screen as well as the canvas. I would have given this a five star.
Fun edutainment title, with some puzzling feature exclusions

Summary: This is a repackage (with changes) of a product that was originally available as two separate titles in the downloadable DSiWare line. I didn't play those titles but from what I've read this is very similar, so much so that most others online don't recommend the purchase of both the retail and...
Summary: This is more of a teaching or instructional application than a game, therefore unless the kids really like art, I would gear this to the preteen stages. It teaches shading and makes drawling fun, like an actual art class.
Summary: I have an app on my iPad called "ArtStudio" and it's a dream to draw and paint in and you can save your images and email them to yourself. It's wonderful and it's easy to create beautiful images. The only thing not so great about it is the tutorials..
