5.0 out of 5 stars 11-year-old son absolutely loves it, February 7, 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Art Academy - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
My son has been drawing, rather prolifically, for most of his life. It is what he does to pass the time. When he saw this "game" on the shelf of a local game store and wanted to spend some of his Christmas money on it, I had an immediate concern: Is this aimed at people who have absolutely no background? Would he quickly dismiss it as being too elementary?

I am happy to report that this was the perfect purchase for him. He loves the lessons, accompanied by opportunities to try new techniques (shading, for example). After about an hour straight with Art Academy, my son was proud to bring us an example of something he drew. I told him about my concern about the game being "too easy". He quickly informed me that it's perfect, but he also wanted to make sure that I mention that he thinks Art Academy would be great for someone with no experience in drawing/painting.

To be honest, our DS has been collecting dust lately. Art Academy has changed that, and I anticipate that our son will continue to have a great time with this. He's anxious, for example, to use our Nintendo DSi to take a photo of our cat so that he can then use it to help him make a painting of our cat.

My recommendation: if you or someone you know is interested in art, this just might be the perfect purchase!
