You be the artist: Nintendo's Art Academy


 
Throughout the years, I have grown to accept that, while I am a writer, I am certainly not an artist. I’ve always preferred the pen to the paintbrush, especially because that’s what I was better at.

 

That being said, when I got the chance to try out Art Academy, Nintendo’s new game for the 3DS, I just couldn’t say no. I’ve always loved and admired art—it was my skill level that was lacking. And, trust me, that didn’t matter, this game is super fun, budding Picasso…or not.

 

One of the coolest things about Art Academy is that you don’t have to be a gamer or an artist to have fun. After completing my first painting, it was hard to put down the 3DS!

 

When you start the game, you get to decide what skill level you are. I went with the beginner courses, but if you’re more art-inclined, feel free to choose the advanced courses. What’s also amazing is that at any time, you can decide to stop following lessons for a bit and draw whatever you would like in Free Paint mode, putting the creativity in your hands!

 

While I’m still not ready to call myself an artist, I hope that I’ll be able to keep playing Art Academy and improve my skills. Not only will I be better at painting in the game with time, but the lessons actually give you knowledge that’s useful for real-life art as well. Talk about a way to wow your fam and friends!

 

Be sure to pick up a copy of the game (available now!) so you can tap into your creative side while relaxing with your 3DS. After just one painting, I can’t wait to get back to my lessons and catch a li’l break from life for a bit.

 

Are you an artist? What’s your fave lesson on Art Academy? Blog about it, babes.
