Disney Art Academy

Important information about the discontinuation of the Miiverse service

The Miiverse service has now ended.

From 23:59 on 30th March, 2021, Disney Art Academy for Nintendo 3DS family systems will no longer be available on Nintendo eShop.


Use a wide variety of tools to learn to draw more than 80 Disney and Pixar characters in Disney Art Academy, only on Nintendo 3DS systems.

By setting your own pace through multiple easy-to-follow lessons, characters like Mickey Mouse, Nemo from Finding Nemo, Elsa from Frozen, Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story and Simba from The Lion King come to life on your Nintendo 3DS!

Calling all budding artists!

In Disney Art Academy, Disney and Pixar characters can be sketched or painted in many different ways. Using nine art tools like pastels, paintbrushes or markers, you can discover your inner artist by participating in lessons inspired by Disney art and animation.

Each lesson guides you through a step-by-step progression to draw a single character. What starts as a series of lines and shapes will gradually evolve into a familiar character using your new art skills! If you ever want to take a break, lessons can easily be saved to continue from the same spot at a later time.

You can even add some extra flair with the magic brush, a new addition to the Art Academy series. With the magic brush, magical additions like stars, bubbles, and glitter can be added to your masterpieces – all easily accessed by using the Touch Screen.

Share your magical creations 

As your art skills improve and you create more and more Disney and Pixar characters, you may very well want to share your creations with others. That can easily be accomplished directly in the game by connecting to the internet and sharing through Miiverse or social media via the Nintendo 3DS Image Share service*.

Completed artwork is also saved to the Nintendo 3DS family system’s SD card, allowing you to upload your creations to a personal computer and print them out. Parents will be able to easily display their children’s art by printing their favourite drawings.

Characters come to life!

If you want to create outside the game’s numerous lessons you’re in luck, as Disney Art Academy includes a Free Paint mode that lets you draw even more characters any way you choose. In Free Paint, you can put your newly learned skills to the test by drawing on a blank canvas, or you can select from more than 80 Disney images to use as reference as you add to your virtual gallery. All completed artwork can be viewed at any time in the game’s Clubhouse, where you can also select your favourite pieces to be viewed in a personal showcase slideshow.
