    I think this is a pretty good way to learn some art skills if your style of art you want to learn is mostly still life and painting with references. Although even if you are solely into, say, cartoon art or portrait art, I still feel like there is some stuff to be learned from here. I had a lot of fun doing the lessons, and feel like I learned some stuff.

My only real problem was how it would sometimes make me break from the instructions just to do something small like mix my paints when I could do that after the instructions, but since it may be helpful to people who have memory problems, I'm all for possible accessibility.

    Well to call this a game is questionable, It teaches you a lot about artwork and does it well, On the other hand it doesn't teach much because of the limits of the Nintendo DS but what it does teach you is helpful
    I recommend this to Older kids who are interested in artwork such as doing it for GCSE or BTEC or Adults trying to learn art skills overall 6/10

    Art Academy is great piece of software that is well worth your time and money, provided you don't have access to cheaper and basically identical DSiWare apps.. My only gripe about the game is that you cannot export your photos, which may be enough to turn some people off from enrolling.

    Fundamentally, Art Academy isn't a game. You are not rated for your actions in any way, shape or form, as one would expect from a game.

    An interesting game and has an audience that would be interested in it, but consider this as an application evolved.
