Got an iPhone for Christmas? Want to learn how to expand your artistic skills beyond ‘stuck out tongue winking eye’ emoji?

From 19th January, Dubai’s shiny new Apple Store in Mall of the Emirates is holding 10 days of art workshops so iPhone and iPad owners can unleash their creative skills.

‘Sketch, Draw, and Paint with an iPad’ and ‘Shoot More Artistic Photos with an iPhone’ will teach people at all artistic levels how to use their handsets as creative tools – from basic painting techniques to getting up close to nature using a micro lens.

Needs some inspiration? The classes are part of Apple’s Start Something New campaign that will see its stores in UAE decked out with beautiful images created by 11 international artists using Apple products and apps.

They say:

Sketch, Draw, and Paint with iPad – Tuesday, 19th January. Bring in your iPad and we’ll practice basic techniques for sketching, drawing, and painting. Use your own Pencil or we’ll supply one for you to try.

Shoot More Artistic Photos with iPhone – Thursday, 21st January and Thursday, 28th January. Bring your iPhone along for this hands-on workshop. We’ll teach you how to shoot photos more creatively and help you try out various accessories and techniques.

Places are filling up, so hurry and sign up at
