The Macworld 2011 conference program will include, for the first time, special “Featured Artist” sessions taught by individuals who bring creativity to life using Apple technology and the Mac OS X add-on productivity products, according to show organizer IDG World Expo.
The Featured Artists––Kyle Lambert (digital artist), Michael Koerbel and Anna Elizabeth James (Apple of My Eye ), Joseph O. Holmes (fine art photographer) and Jonathan Mann (“Song A Day”)––have made the leap into popular culture and represent the new breed of digital artisans who are stretching the boundaries of technology for creative endeavors, says IDG.
“From music to visual arts to movie making, technology has made the veil between everyday user and genius thin,” said Paul Kent, vice president and general manager, Macworld 2011.
“To exemplify this new reality, we scoured the country and carefully selected a group of ‘populist’ artists who are doing truly amazing things with Apple products.”

“Digital Artwork on the Mac, iPad and iPhone,” with Kyle Lambert , visual artist, on Thursday, January 27 at 10:30 a.m. PT
