If you head down to an Apple store today, you'll see a program of educational sessions on offer for the first time in Australia - covering everything from photo and video to music, coding, art and design.
Dubbed "Today at Apple", the sessions will take place in every Apple Store, every hour (during store hours). In Australia alone there will be over 1,000 hours of free programming on offer each week.
The hands-on sessions will be led by Apple staff, teaching sessions from basics and how-to lessons to professional-level programs. Here are some of the sessions on offer:
Explore the world around you and improve your iPhone photography skills on an inspiring photo walk. Apple will take you to new places, show you how to create stunning shots, experiment with the latest accessories and share our best photography and editing tips.
Go on a fun walk to new locations and learn how to sketch, paint and draw with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. Get back to basics and explore drawing techniques, and join other artists to create collaborative artwork.

There are sessions on iPad, iPhone, Apple ID and iCloud, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, iPhone and iPad Intermediate and Mac Intermediate.
There are so many amazing things to do and create with iPhone, iPad, Mac and more.
