The Creative Studios initiative will be expanded to seven additional cities this year, including Nashville, Miami, Berlin, Milan, Taipei, Tokyo, and Sydney. The program will return in Chicago, Washington, D.C., New York City, London, Paris, Bangkok, and Beijing.

Apple said the initiative is designed to support young people who face barriers to receiving a quality creative education.

Creative Studios sessions open to the public will be hosted at select Apple Store locations, with free registration available on the Today at Apple website.

Our stores have long provided a platform to showcase the great talent of local artists, and our retail teams are proud to play a role in supporting creativity within their communities and creating a place where everyone is welcome.
