A video game might not seem like the obvious choice for an artistically inclined youngster, but Nintendo’s Art Academy doesn’t feel much like a video game. It’s actually like a introduction to painting and drawing that happens to be on the Nintendo DS.
It’s not very game-y, rather it focuses on learning skills that can be carried over to other mediums, you know, like actual paper and paint. It’s about as close as you can get without taking an easel, brushes, and palette around with you. It’s for all ages.
