Summary: I would have rated this as "loved it" if more tutorial lessons available. My.son does continue to "play" this some, but finished all tutorials fairly quickly and now not as engaging for him. He's 9, but I think would be same for older child/adult.
Summary: This was purchased as a gift for my young Granddaughter. I have not used it myself nor have I seen it being used. She liked this gift and I will continue to purchase items like this from Amazon.
Summary: My kids really enjoyed this game. The lessons were simple enough and they actually took away some ideas on how to do art. One of my daughters finished it, while the younger one (8) gave up about half way through it. My girls have also had actual art lessons at an art studio, with a "real" artist.
Summary: This game is a great tool to sharpen your art skills or try and just start in art. The lessons are great and you can go at your own pace and redo a lesson as many times as you like. I like that it shows you tools and what they do.
Summary: so far this has been interesting and educational. the screen on my DS is a little small for this so I do have to wear my glasses. i do wish that there was a way to forward the tutorials as they are a little slow for me.
Summary: The primary user of this game is my 6.5 year old who absolutely loved experimenting with different techniques without even realizing that she was "learning". Each lesson provided her with a sense of accomplishment and she would complement her DSi lessons with the traditional paper-and-pencil...
Summary: There is no question about the joy that Nintendo has shown with imagininaion and mind with their video games for the DS. Since games like Brain Age came out for the system, gamers young and old have been so welcomed into what makes Nintendo so influential with great video games.
Summary: I brought this for my daughter, who is doing her gcse's in art, for our plane journey. She loved it, as did my mother, who is an artist. My daughter said it saved faffing about with pencil and paper when traveling, and gave her useful techniques when doing her homework abroad.
