GA is a started off as a 4 panel comic strip about students in an Art school. They've translated it into an anime of just mini stories of their simple adventures of learning about art. The style is much like Lucky Star in which you can jump in and out at any moment and it gives you a little smile on the cuteness.
Besides the cuteness, what I like about the show is that you can actually learn a lot about art. They throw in tons of little art tidbits as you watch the students learn and practice art in their courses. They learn -> Audience learns.
On the first episode alone I learned about
- Pictogram vs an Monogram
- Paints that Blend rather than Layer
- How to make Eraser Puddy
