Tim Cook Highlights 'The Big Draw' Sketching Sessions Taking Place at Apple Stores This Month

To celebrate The Big Draw Festival, a monthlong worldwide celebration of drawing held every October, eight Apple Stores are hosting special Today at Apple sessions related to the festival throughout the month.


A total of 108 sessions will be hosted by the end of the month at Apple Regent Street in London, Apple Piazza Liberty in Milan, Apple Dubai Mall in Dubai, Apple Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Apple SoHo and Apple Williamsburg in New York, Apple Orchard Road in Singapore, and Apple Union Square in San Francisco.


Apple CEO Tim Cook today tweeted about a session hosted by artist Marcy Smith, who helped customers learn how to draw and sketch with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil at the Union Square store on Wednesday evening.


The sessions, which include Live Art and Sketch Walks, are free to attend as space permits. There are still plenty of sessions remaining through the second half of October, and those interested can browse and sign up for sessions on the Today at Apple page. Most sessions are scheduled to run 90 minutes.

No October Mac event but they announce this so prominently?! It's like they are mocking us.


"They still think we are going to release a 2018 Mac Mini!"

October still has 13 days, plus Apple can multitask.

Apple doesn’t need an event to launch new products. They can do it by press release.

I also used to think that Apple can multitask - but not so the last few years; look at their Mac lineup!

They were able to do emojis and iOS 12. They can multitask.;)

Well, I've wanted to be able to draw for the last 15 years. I think now's the time.
