The latest Art Academy title arrives, throwing in the ability to draw iconic Disney characters. It's a solid and soothing way to kill time, but is a little basic in its delivery.

Ultimately, Disney Art Academy does exactly what it promises to do on the back of the box.

Disney Art Academy will not make you a skilled cartoonist. It is a product designed for the little ones, with clear and simple tutorials that can make the game attractive and widely accessible for anyone. The software is carefully developed: in the hands of children, the Disney Magic will make a remedy for any lack.

Disney Art Academy is a solid and inviting way to learn the fundamentals of artistic techniques. There's a real attraction in learning how to master these iconic characters – and while this title may primarily appeal to kids, there's certainly a lot to love here for grown-ups ready to supplement their adult colouring books with something that covers earlier steps in the creative process. The tools on offer may not be of the highest fidelity thanks to outdated hardware, but they are intelligently crafted to be more than adequate for exploring creativity or sparking a love of art. That's a net-win in our book.

Like Pokemon Art Academy before it, Disney Art Academy works as a solid learning tool for folks who want to learn how to draw by using characters from Disney and Pixar. The stylus interface can have some niggles with accuracy and the screen size can feel constricting. Overall, however, it’s a great way to get the basics down for drawing and painting.

Disney Art Academy has a rather involved and in-depth toolset, but its slow pace may bore people who give it a chance. Kids who love to draw and would relish the opportunity to learn how to sketch Disney/Pixar characters while on the go, will surely find it of interest, though.

That’s really it — you draw Disney characters. As such, this will work for die-hard adult Disney fans, but is best suited for children with long car rides in their future. It’ll be engaging and involving childhood heroes, making it hard to fail.
