About This Class

eb8c785f

 In this course, we’ll be using a free photo editing website called Picmonkey to create our graphics. No Photoshop or Illustrator required.  Yay!! You’ll learn how to recognize basic shapes in graphic images, and where to find inspiration for your graphics. 

You’ll create three different graphics using basic shapes that can be used anywhere you'd like including blog posts, on your website, social media, and print.

You don’t have to have a background in creating graphics or need any special skills. If you can recognize shapes, you’ll do just fine.
