Canva Beginners for Social Media

Get creative using this wonderful free online platform and learn how to create images and video content with Canva 

Entrepreneurs, businesses and marketers know how important it is to create fresh content for social media, website and printed collateral, which is what Canva was originally designed for. But it's also a fantastic creative tool for personal use, making your social media accounts look amazing and transforming or creating artwork to print or share online. 

In this course we will use the resources within Canva to create graphics and artwork suitable for both online and print. Skills learned in each exercise are designed to get you more familiar and comfortable with the Canva platform. The projects we do in class may include:

·         banner images

·         social media posts

·         video posts

·         GIF

·         checklist which can be printed or added to a digital planner

·         business card design suitable to print

·         postcard design suitable to print

No previous experience with the platform is required.  If you are a beginner or recently discovered Canva but are finding the program difficult to navigate then course will provide a comprehensive overview and get you into a more comfortable workflow.  However if you're already a confident user of Canva,  but wish to refine your existing knowledge and broaden your skills,  then please enrol in the Canva Intermediate class instead ( the Intermediate class requires Canva Pro subscription).

Please sign up for your Canva account before class and bring your log-in details with you. I prefer and recommend using email as your sign-up option rather than through a social media network. It is quick to sign up, though, so if you need help setting up your account, you will need access to an email account and we can do that in class.

We will be using the FREE Canva software, all of these features are also in Canva Pro,  but the paid account is not required for this introductory course.

Bring an A4 notebook, a pen and some colour textas or pencils to class for taking colourful notes and brainstorming.
