Every Apple Store worldwide will be celebrating The Big Draw, which is said to be the world’s largest annual drawing festival, by offering hand-on art sessions with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. Sessions are available October 1–31. Free registration is available on Apple’s website.
Participants attending 60 to 90 minute long Today at Apple sessions will use the new Adobe Fresco app on an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil to draw colorful faces and objects, create an abstract painting, and more.
The Big Draw sessions include:
