Please join The Nonprofit Partnership and Amanda Karns of Dorado Creative for “Hands-On with Canva 2018” on Thursday, June 21, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Gannon University.
This workshop will provide a basic introduction to some principles of graphic design and various marketing techniques using a simple, free online software called Canva. We’ll focus on marketing pieces you can design yourself to get your organization ready for Erie Gives Day. Most of this session’s time will be allotted for hands-on working time.
Need a refresher or some one-on-one assistance from Amanda? This session is for you!
Please come prepared: sign up for a FREE “Canva for Nonprofits” account ahead of time at https://about.canva.com/canva-for-nonprofits/ and bring your log-in information to the workshop. If you wish, you might also want to bring a flash drive with your organization’s logo and any photos you want to use in your marketing efforts (though this is not necessary).
The learning objectives for this session include:
- Learn the features, abilities, and functionality of Canva
- Discuss basic graphic design principles and how they can apply to DIY marketing pieces
- Practice creating your own custom designs in Canva for the upcoming Erie Gives Day event
This workshop is geared towards staff at smaller organizations without comprehensive marketing teams – and anyone interested in having some fun with Canva!
The level of learning for this workshop is between beginner and intermediate – time will primarily be spent on reviewing and working on designs.
