Disney Art Academy
Learn to draw more than 80 Disney characters and show off your creations with Disney Art Academy, where Disney and Pixar characters can be sketched or painted in many different ways.
Using nine art tools like pastels, paintbrushes or markers, you can discover your inner artist by participating in lessons. Each lesson guides you through a step-by-step progression to draw a single character. What starts as a series of lines and shapes will gradually evolve into a familiar character using your new art skills! If you ever want to take a break, lessons can easily be saved to continue from the same spot at a later time.
You can even add some extra flair with the magic brush, a new addition to the Art Academy series. With the magic brush, magical additions like stars, bubbles, and glitter can be added to your masterpieces – all easily accessed by using the touch screen.
If you want to create outside the game’s numerous lessons you’re in luck, as Disney Art Academy includes a Free Paint mode that lets you draw even more characters any way you choose. In Free Paint, you can put your newly learned skills to the test by drawing on a blank canvas, or you can select from more than 80 Disney images - like Lumière, Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts - to use as reference as you add to your virtual gallery. All completed artwork can be viewed at any time in the game’s Clubhouse, where you can also select your favourite pieces to be viewed in a personal showcase slideshow.
As your art skills improve and you create more and more Disney and Pixar characters, you may very well want to share your creations with others. That can easily be accomplished directly in the game by connecting to the Internet and sharing through Miiverse.
Completed artwork is also saved to the system’s SD card, allowing you to upload your creations to a personal computer and print them out. Parents will be able to easily display their children’s art by printing their favourite drawings. Remember that Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access.
