    Apple is offering a series of "sketch walks" hosted by well-known artists to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Urban Sketchers, a global community of artists that are dedicated to on-location drawing.

    Many artists who are members of Urban Sketchers have adopted the iPad Pro as a drawing tool of choice, including Uma Kelkar from San Francisco, Rob Sketcherman from Hong Kong, Don Low from Singapore, and Omar Jamarillo from Berlin, all of whom will be teaching the sketching classes.

    All of the 10th anniversary sketch walks hosted by Urban Sketchers artists will take place on Thursday, November 30 at Apple retail locations around the world. Don Low will teach in Singapore, Rob Sketcherman will teach in Hong Kong, Uma Kelkar will teach in San Francisco, and Omar Jaramillo will teach in Berlin.

    Each class requires customers to bring an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil, along with comfortable shoes. Walks range from 0.5km to 2km.

    Apple also offers several other classes dedicated to drawing and sketching on Apple devices, all of which are part of its "Today" program. The Today program allows Apple retail stores to offer classes on a wide range of subjects, providing help and instruction for customers of all skill levels.

    Paper is the past. Cut down trees can report to that.

    I'm not an artist myself, but I'll admit I can see the utility in being able to instantly change color swatches without lugging around an entire set of pencils/paintbrushes/what-have-you.

    That said, I'm of your opinion. No technology can match the natural manner of simply putting ink to paper. We lose something when we forget that.

    I hear you, I really do. Nevertheless, I find it hard to buy the eco-friendly argument when it comes to modern technology. Who knows how much wood, coal, and oil was burned to supply the electricity to the factories where our "eco-friendly" devices are made? More than the equivalent that any of us use in a year, I am sure.

    Don't get me wrong. I absolutely think we need to find more environmentally-friendly ways to practice stewardship of our precious Earth. But we've got to peer a bit deeper than most companies (or simply first-world citizens) would really want us to.

    Advantages to both, but carting around all the art supplies you'd need to emulate what you can do with an iPad would be a huge pain, so digital is definitely a lot more flexible. :)
