Kid’s Day at Adobe

Kids Day 2013Picnic in San Jose
Adobe employees and their children were all smiles as they made their way to the office last Friday for Kid’s Day. Adobe offices in San Jose, California, and Lehi, Utah, hosted more than 700 children. These special guests were thrilled to show off their Kid’s Day t-shirts and their very own Adobe badges.

These children were first ushered to a Kid’s Lounge where airbrush and henna artists, caricaturists and balloonists were on hand to create the most colorful tattoos, comical portraits, and intricate balloon designs from giant spiders to monkeys and wearable balloon costumes. A photo booth was also available to ensure that these memorable moments were captured.

Younger children enjoyed participating in an obstacle course, Ujam dance classes, and educational activities put together by members of the Tech, Leonardo and Discovery Museums. Older kids had the opportunity to experience a hand-on tutorial about Adobe Illustrator, put their creativity to work, and an opportunity to print their designs on t-shirts. For those who wanted to take a break, Relax Rooms were also available so that they could unwind and enjoy some snacks and smoothies. A visit to Adobe would certainly not be complete without photography. A photo walk was organized to teach these children the techniques of capturing great shots using digital cameras and smart phones. These were just some of the many activities that were organized.

The event concluded with an island-themed picnic and entertainment by a Polynesian dance troupe. Adobe Kid’s Day was certainly a memorable and wonderful event. Adobe hallways were filled with laughter and excitement. Everyone had a great time together. Next stop for Adobe Kid’s Day is San Francisco, California, in August.

    How sweet.
    I remembered old days. My dad worked for Siemens and every year we visited his office – saw the entire plant and his work place and interacted with his colleagues. It was great to know more about his work and the company as whole

    What an amazing event, I would have never gotten into the creative field if in my youth people didn’t help cultivate my talents. I can’t thank those people enough now that I get to do what I love. Just a thought. How can I get one of those KIDDAY T-Shirts?
