Canva 101 – How to Make Graphics for Social Media
Canva is a graphic design platform that makes creating beautiful images a breeze! You can design social media posts, blog graphics, presentations, posters, flyers or create your own custom dimension design. You can download your creations in many formats: .png, .pdf, and .mov, and more!
This 3-hour hands-on online training workshop will teach you how to:
- work with Canva templates & layouts
- work with elements
- work with fonts
- manipulate colours/schemes
- upload and adjust images
- apply backgrounds
- save in various formats.
This training workshop is an interactive training session where you will carry out a number of training activities rather than passively listen to a lecture or presentation. You will be sent a Canva training file to work on during the workshop.
By the end of this workshop, you will have the knowledge you need to create personalized (branded) graphics that help you stand out from the crowd. As you continue to use and experiment with the Canva features after the training workshop you will further enhance your skills.
This workshop will be taught using a desktop version of the program – not the cell phone app. Prior to the class you should go to Canva.com and create your free account. You will be sent a Canva training file to work on during the training workshop.
Registration Fee: $35.00 + HST = $39.55
