Apple will host free virtual art sessions for Chicago high school students next week as part of its continuing online-based “Today at Apple” event series.
The online “Sentrock’s Summer Studio” sessions are scheduled to run from July 27 through July 31, and will feature some of Chicago’s “most influential creators,” including Sentrock, Hailey M Losselyong, Norma Ojeda, Nikko Washington and Lizz Ortiz.
Calling all Chicagoland high school students! From July 27–31, join Sentrock Studio and Young Chicago Authors with Today at Apple for a week of free virtual art sessions for students ages 14–18.
Each day you’ll go behind the scenes with a lineup of Chicago’s most influential creators to find inspiration in their studios, learn illustration tips and techniques, and make artwork inspired by their visual styles. Bring your imagination and whatever you have to draw on.
At the end of the week, 20 students will be selected to continue on to a two-week program. From August 17–30, Sentrock and his crew will dig deep into typography, line, color, collaboration, and storytelling. Participants will be able to ask questions and get feedback, work on their style, and test their skills in digital battles. Then things will wrap up with a live virtual Secret Walls Tournament.
Sessions will take place daily from 1:00–4:00 p.m. (CDT) via Webex and may be recorded for internal training and improvement purposes. To join, you will need a computer, laptop, mobile, or tablet device; a stable internet connection; and the Cisco Webex Meetings app. Parents and legal guardians of minors, and those 18 years and over, can register. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with further details on how to join. For more details including how to sign up, click the link.
