Starting in January, Apple will be hosting workshops at Apple Retail Stores around the world focused on honing artistic skills with Apple devices. For instance, stores will hold hands-on sessions aimed at improving your iPhone photography, teaching you how to use a number of apps and accessories to capture great images.

From CNET:

"We'll help you try out various accessories and techniques -- like long exposure for light trails, using Time-lapse to show progression, or getting up close with nature using a macro lens," Apple said in a statement. "Then, we'll explore artistic ways to adjust and edit your photos, so you can create a work of art, find your style, or just improve your skills."

Another set of sessions will focus on the iPad, offering instruction on sketching, drawing, and painting.

The workshops are an outgrowth of Apple's "[Start something new](/e?" campaign, which showcases artistic work created on Apple devices. They will be held at every Apple Store, and you can check with your local store for a session schedule.
