Apple launches 'Today at Apple' virtual sessions on YouTube, plus separate Ted Lasso Fan Art session Sat 24 July


With many people still in lockdowns and working from home in various parts of the world, Apple has decided to take its "Today at Apple" sessions virtual, with Apple's YouTube channel the place to see episodes, starting with a Peanuts art class, along with a separate Ted Lasso fan art session in just over a week.

With the pandemic causing ongoing lockdowns in Greater Sydney, affecting millions of people, and potential lockdowns to come in the Australian state of Victoria, there's a lot of people who are working and learning from home.

But whether you're in a lockdown or not, whether you're vaccinated or not, there's obviously tremendous value in being able to do things from anywhere you have a screen and an Internet connection, rather than needing to go into an Apple Store.

Of course, it will be great when we can all go into stores again and gather with friends without having to worry about COVID, and not have to wear masks when in close proximity to others, but until then, our new virtual reality is being nicely augmented with great Apple content.

With the second season of Ted Lasso airing July 23 on Apple TV+, and the first season a multi-award winning must-see wonder of truly delightful and feel-good proportions, it's no surprise to see Apple's first new Today at Apple virtual session revolving around the wondrous Ted and his memorably positive sayings.

The session is called "Virtual Studio: Ted Lasso Fan Art with Tyrsa."

You can now register to freely take part in Virtual Studio: Ted Lasso Fan Art with Tyrsa.

Today At Apple is delivering the session where participants will discover a selection of memorable quotes from Ted Lasso, including an illustrated one, created by French illustrator and type artist, Tyrsa.

Participants will write an inspirational quote using iPad and Apple Pencil for themselves, friend or family, or favourite football team.

Timing: 6:30pm AEST, Saturday, 24 July.

The next bit of news is the launch of "Today at Apple on YouTube."

Today at Apple will be launching on Apple’s YouTube channel, where viewers can dive into projects across photo, video, and art & design all inspired by the work and creative process of today’s global tastemakers and hosted by Apple Creatives.

The first episode is "Draw Yourself as a Peanuts Character in Pages" and is embedded below, and it's where Apple's Creatives show viewers how to draw themselves as “Peanuts” characters in Pages with the help of “The Snoopy Show” showrunner Mark Evestaff and storyboard artist Krista Porter, along with Apple Store Creative Pro Anthony.

The first episode is available now - Draw Yourself as a Peanuts Character in Pages with a Snoopy Artist:
