Canva for Beginners (Webinar) -

We know that you might not have much budget for graphic design, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have nice things! This webinar will teach you the very basics of using Canva (a graphic design platform built for creating visual content) to easily upgrade your nonprofit’s communications. 

Canva is an app that lets you easily create images and design professional documents, and can help you to spruce up your social media, website, email signatures, and more. 

Register for this workshop to get to grips with: 

  • Using Canva to create images for different purposes 
  • Applying your brand to Canva templates 
  • The very basics of graphic design.

This session is intended for people with little to no experience of Canva or graphic design, so absolute beginners are very welcome. 

How to register

This webinar is free to attend. Registration is required*. 

*NOTE: After registration, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions for joining the session.

I came to the session with no real knowledge of Canva and I've learnt a lot even in the short session. - D. O'Doherty, The Alzheimer Society of Ireland 

It provided an accessible introduction to Canva which makes me feel more confident in using it. - A. Watson, Innovista Ireland 

 I was engaged throughout because of the practical approach Emily took by working through an example and sticking with this. It is sometimes hard to follow introductions to software packages because the presenter attempts to cover too much, yet Emily covered a lot without it being overwhelming. She highlighted the usefulness of Canva but pointed out its limitations and that it's not a solution for all graphic design projects. - K. McAney Vincent Wildlife Trust 

The webinar Idemystified something I know little or nothing about. - DRCC 

Who should attend

People new to Canva, people new to graphic design, organisations without a dedicated communications team.
