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.
