|Spoiler alert: The following section contains plot-specific details.(Skip Section)|
Cappy town is in an art craze. Tiff has been teaching all the Cappies how to make art and paint pictures, all but King Dedede, who believes everyone is planning a revolution against him.
King Dedede heads to Cappy Town to investigate the so-called revolution, but he finds nothing more than all the townsfolk painting pictures. Tiff explains what art really is but Dedede and Escargoon don't get it at all. Cappy Town was about to have it's first art exhibition, but Dedede soaks everyone and everything with water, causing the whole town to become furious with the king. Dedede compensates by building an art museum known as the Royal Acadddemy of Arts.
Inside, the place was empty. Tiff decided to hold a contest for the best artist to have their portraits displayed. Dedede spices things up with cash prices and everyone grew excited. Tiff however, thought that creating artwork should be its own reward. Dedede decides to do things differently, he goes to NME to rent real paintings to hang in the museum. These paintings where from another world and Tiff, Tuff, and Kirby get a sneak peek of every work.
The alien paintings gave a shock to everyone. Tiff thinks the painting is lovely and considers it real art. Dedede, on the other hand, thinks the painting is ugly. The group looks at more works of art and then they decided to show them all to the public. Tiff hosts a grand tour in the museum for all of Cappy Town. First, a tour through the sculptures and second, a tour through the paintings. The kids make fun of the weird looking pieces while Kirby jumps for joy over a sketch of fruit. Dedede gets tired of all the art and wants to show his own kind.
Much to his dismay, everyone laughs at how poorly made his painting is. Dedede gets furious and orders a monster called Paint Roller to get his revenge. Paint Roller scates over to the museum and defaces all the art with Dedede and Escargoon. Escargoon realizes they have to return the pieces in one to three days so Dedede will pardon Paint Roller if he paints a portrait of his majesty. While he paints, Tiff tries to clean the defaced paintings, but the fabrication Paint Roller did comes to life. The giant portrait of Dedede was materialising to life. Equipped with a space gun, the Dedede painting shoots laser beams at everybody, but Meta Knight comes to the rescue and burns the monster. Paint Roller was still there, painting a picture of a giant bomb, so Kirby sucks in his paint brush and transforms into Paint Kirby. The two battle in a paint war. Kirby draws a rocket and Paint Roller finishes his bomb painting. The rocket blasts off into the bomb and Paint Roller was terminated.
The episode ends with the whole town being splattered with paint.
