About This Class

Today, being online often means having beautiful, well designed images, be it graphics, photographs, or both. However, not everyone has the budget to hire a graphic designer to create weekly content for them. That’s where Canva comes in.


Canva is a free online design tool that anyone can use to create beautiful graphics that can be used online, be it on social media, their websites, in the emails, etc.

This class is the first in a series of classes that will help students learn how to create beautiful designs for themselves using Canva.

How to use Canva will focus mainly on the following;

  • How to set up an account with Canva.
  • How to start a project.
  • What design tools Canva offers, where they are, and how to use them.

There are no requirements for this class other than a decent internet connection. It’s a purely beginner class geared mainly towards bloggers and small business owners. However, professional graphic designers who are looking for a simpler tool to use for smaller projects will also benefit from this class.
