Getting Started with Canva
Canva is the online graphic design tool you’ve heard so much about. Perhaps you even have an account but you haven’t really found the time use it. In this class you’ll learn the basics of creating professional looking marketing materials like flyers, bookmarks, infographics, social media posts and more. Then we’ll spend time making graphics you can use right away. Why use Canva? It’s free, easy-to-use, and it can save you time, once you get the hang of it.
At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
- Navigate Canva's interface in order to use its expansive collection of artwork, layouts and templates;
- Create professional looking graphics that can be shared with colleagues and used online and in-print;
- Leave with at least one completed, ready-to-use project as well as sample ideas and resources to access later.
- Must have a Canva account before class begins. Accounts are free and can later be upgraded to paid premium or non-profit premium. Sign up at www.canva.com;
- Must have basic computer skills and familiarity with software such as Word/Powerpoint/Publisher;
- Come prepared with a project in mind to try out such as a flyer, social media post, bookmark, etc.
- Bring your own laptop and charger. For the best experience users should be familiar with the laptop they bring and should log into their Canva account on it ahead of time.
