Art Academy: SketchPad is Here

Release your inner artist! The Art Academy™: SketchPad application puts advanced drawing tools at your fingertips. You can sketch with realistic graphite, charcoal, and colored pencils, and draw impressionistic designs with pastels. Create your own masterpieces using the Wii U™ GamePad controller and share them* on Miiverse™. This is only the beginning—we are developing an Art Academy title that includes in-depth art lessons, so be sure to check Nintendo eShop for future updates!

  • • Blur colors and textures together—add depth to your work with Smudge Sticks and Putty Rubber
  • • Begin with a blank canvas or use reference photos for inspiration
  • • Build a portfolio and share your creations with the Art Academy community*

*Broadband Internet access required for online features. For more info, go to support.nintendo.com.
