Tyson Library hosted a Canva 101 class for community members involved in small businesses or area nonprofit organizations on January 18. The group learned some of the basics about Canva, an online graphic design software that markets itself as being for everyone and anyone.
This class, like those that will follow, was largely a workshop for the attendees. Tyson Library’s Advertising Coordinator Tali Crowe is leading each session with the goal to help everyone leave with a finished product they could take and use for their business or organization as soon as the class is over. So, she kept the presentation portion short to have lots of time for real-time demonstration and hands-on help with using the software to create polished final products for each participant.
In last week’s session, one participant’s nonprofit organization already has and uses a Canva account to create graphics for social media and more. This attendee was able to upload the organization’s specific color pallet and logo to the Canva account. Both were then integrated into a Facebook post, which some will see and believe was made by a graphic design-professional, thanks to Canva’s collection of editable templates.
Registration is open now for the Canva 101 for Small Businesses & Local Organizations that is taking place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 15. Click here to save your seat!
