Disney Art Academy

Over the summer we were challenged to discover our inner artist with Disney Art Academy.

The Nintendo 3Ds Disney Art Academy is guided art lesson where you learn to draw one of 80+ Disney and Pixar characters just by using the stylus on your Nintendo 3DS.

With advice and lessons inspired by Disney art and Pixar animations, you can learn to use different drawing tools to create Disney Princess’, Elsa and Olaf from Disney Frozen, Joy and Anger from Disney’s Inside Out, Mickey Mouse, and more. You can even share your creations with your friends using Miiverse or straight to Facebook and Twitter by using the Nintendo 3DS Image Share service.

This game is perfect for Eliza, 5, and she is happy to play on the basic level, tracing lines and filling in with colours. As the game progresses and you get more confident, you are taught about expressions and portraits. The stylus becomes your paintbrush, pencil, marker, airbrush and more, allowing you to build up layers to develop all sorts of cool-looking effects.

There are some excellent tips included for young artists, like using facial symmetry in the Disney Princesses which give them their classic beauty, or changing the angle of their eyebrows to change the look of the face.

There are 40 lessons inspired by Disney artists, designed to take you from amateur to expert! With the help of your very own in-game tutor, you’ll learn to use a range of different tools and real-world drawing techniques or just have fun with the free fun paint mode where you can have fun painting whatever you like, whenever you like!
