Art Academy Series

Nintendo / DS, 3DS, WiiU

Art Academy: SketchPad is the first title to bring our impressive drawing media simulation to the Wii U platform. Unleash your creativity on the larger Wii U GamePad screen with realistic stylus-based drawing. The included pencils, colored pencils, and pastels behave just like the real thing, allowing novices and artistic veterans alike to create wonderfully detailed drawings. Players can select one of the pre-loaded images as a subject, or just draw freely to their heart's content. Finished works can be shared directly to Miiverse!


New Art Academy is the second Art Academy title and brings our famously accessible art tutorials to Nintendo 3DS. It improves on the original with a more faithful paint simulation and a true "plein-air painting" experience with its 3D animating landscape images. The eccentric tutor, Vince, and his dog Bacon present a completely new set of lessons, which will take you from the very basics all the way through to advanced drawing and painting techniques such as perspective and human portraiture. Downloadable lessons are available in the eShop to extend the experience. Share your images with friends via SpotPass or local wi-fi connection - or export them to SD card to share on your social media of choice!

If you dream of becoming the next Monet but don't know where to start, Art Academy is the title for you! The Nintendo DS touch screen becomes your canvas, and the stylus your paintbrush. Your patient tutor, Vince, will walk you step-by-step through a series of lessons that teach you to draw and paint, from the absolute basics to more advanced techniques that even experienced artists will find useful for brushing up their skills. If you want to strike out on your own, you can let loose in Free Paint with one of the large library of included subject images, or take your Nintendo DS Camera anywhere and snap your own images to paint!

Art Academy's potential to encourage latent talent or simply inspire a new hobby shouldn't go unnoticed. - Eurogamer
