Starting next month Apple is going to offer art and photography workshops in its retail stores across the country, these workships aim to help amateurs use various apps available for mobile devices like the iPhone to capture much more creative photographs. There will also be workshops that will teach techniques for sketching, painting and drawing on the iPad, and as part of its Start Something New campaign, Apple is going to post artists’ creations on its websites and in its stores.
“We’ll help you try out various accessories and techniques — like long exposure for light trails, using Time-lapse to show progression, or getting up close with nature using a macro lens,” Apple explains in a statement, adding that the workshops will help xplore artistic ways to adjust and edit photos so that users can “create a work of art, find your style, or just improve your skills.”
To get the ball rolling Apple is going to bring in some of the artists that are having their work featured in the company’s stores and on its website to a special event at the Apple Store on 14th Street in New York City. Artists who will be attending include Tiffany Bozic, Jake Sargeant, William Hundley, Greg Barth, and Bernhard Lang.
These workshops will be held at almost all Apple Stores across the country, local workshop schedules can be check on Apple’s website.
