    The abundance of options available at your fingertips is very cool, and the ability to share couldn't be easier, save for direct posting to social networks – but we'll make do with what we have.

    More software than game, Art Academy: Home Studio is an enjoyable experience with infinite replayability. Regardless of your artistic skill, it will teach you a thing or two and give you a nice creative outlet to express yourself with its expansive toolset.

    This is the best Art Academy ever released: drawing and painting lessons are interesting and complete, and finally we can share them online. The only real limits of this "game" are the same limits of the touch screen, which isn't the best tool to paint.

    After previous chapters in the series, the Wii U gets what is so far the most advanced and richest version of Art Academy. While it’s certainly no professional design software, it has a good pace to its lessons and is set to appeal to the players who want to give a boost to their artistic aspirations.

I would say it is the best educational game I have ever played, period. I am AMAZED by what my kids are learning and then applying to their art classes -- so much so that I started picking up the game the other night and I think I have found a new hobby. This is quality of life gaming at its finest. Expand

    No worries though, if you don't feel like being tutored, you're free to go ahead and do your thing. When you're done, be sure to post to Miiverse, you might even get popular!

TheThis is more of a learning program than a game, although there are some playful elements like uploading your drawings to social media. The lessons are very informative and teach you how to use the various tools provided. I found the pencil lessons very useful as I never knew exactly how to use them in a practical way as the softness and hardness provide different techniques. I would almost say this is a perfect teaching tool because it also has a tactile feeling with the sounds the pencil makes on the paper, however sometimes the shading can be tricky and not so precise, often over powered and when you go to erase it goes completely white. The smudger is also very tricky to use, as expected this is digital drawing and harder to control than in reality, but does teach you the techniques. Expand
