This Sunday 28 November, Nintendo and acclaimed artist Mika Utzon Popov will be holding a free outdoor art class for 100 people using Nintendo ds game Art Academy. Mika Utzon Popov is actually the grandson of Sydney Opera House designer, Jørn Utzon - wow!
Utzon Popov will use one of the latest games on Nintendo DS – Art Academy – to show how anyone from beginners to experts can create their own works of art! The 100 lucky people will go through a tutorial in painting and drawing techniques, and then they will be given the opportunity to draw Australia’s most iconic building – The Sydney Opera House on their Nintendo DS thanks to Art Academy!
The first 100 people to register for the exclusive art class and turn up on the day will receive a free Art Academy game. Those interested in attending the Art Academy class can come equipped with their own, Nintendo DS, but if you don’t have one, you can still participate on the day as there will be Nintendo DS consoles on hand to borrow.
The day will begin with an intensive art class inside the Park Hyatt, where Utzon Popov will divulge his tips and tricks, on the finer points of the software, and arm the students with the tools with which to unearth their inner artist. Once the students have learnt the ropes, they’ll be let loose at Campbell’s Cove where they will paint their own impressions of The Sydney Opera House using their Nintendo DS.
