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.

This class was an awesome intro to PicMonkey and making simple graphics. The direction in finding shapes in objects and different ways to use the shapes in PicMonkey made the graphics process easier. Instructions were clear, videos were awesome, and the concepts were easy to learn. Thank you for an awesome class!
Cynthia is a great teacher! She makes things so easy, and really fun too!
