Apple Store classes for Kids

Just wondering if anyone took there kids to the Apple Store for any classes. I saw today they have an art class for kids, they can make an emoji. Was going to take my 6 year old. Trying to see if she is too young for it ? And if people liked it.

I took a bunch of classes at the Apple Store and always liked them. Just trying to find out about kids.

I don’t think she’s necessarily too young. I think what might find is you and she will explore together at her pace, based on what you’re half listening to from the presenter and your own knowledge. Should be a fun outing!

Thanks, it says they use the procreate app in the class which I never used before. They also supply you with an iPad and Apple Pencil to use , which I just found out my daughter uses them in school. I haven’t had an iPad in a long time, I would love to get a new one. It will be fun with my daughter and worst case I buy a brand new iPad with pencil lol

I’ve seen an Apple Store coding class for a group of second-graders with widely varying interest in coding (and no experience). It was pretty impressive – the store employee kept their attention and brought them all along.

Procreate is a very intuitive app. Sounds like the age level is just about right.

My former store had a starting age rule of 8 years old. Please check with your local store for more info. You can also try to book a session through the store’s website. The kids classes book up quickly and people who hope to “just show up” always leave disappointed.

Finally took my daughter today for the the class on making an emoji. It was great, my daughter loved it. The instructor was great. They had about 8 kids in the class. I even learned stuff cause I have never used procreate before.

I have been to adult classes at the Apple Store but it’s nice to see the kids classes are just as good.
