Want to create stunning images for social media?

Canva is one of the most comprehensive tools that you can use to create imagery for your business. It can help you create professional-looking designs that will WOW your audience.

Bring your laptop to this workshop and let’s get busy creating some amazing graphics for your business.

The Intro to Canva for Business workshop covers the following:

Setting up your Canva account

  • Adding your brand kit
  • Choosing the right image type
  • Using templates
  • Elements and other tools
  • Uploading your own imagery
  • Downloading and printing
  • What you get in the paid vs free version
  • Creating videos and images with moving components

This workshop is a practical hands-on class. You will ideally need a laptop as well as access to your business branding – preferably your logo, colours and fonts but if you don’t, I can help you discover these in the class.

Places are strictly limited to ensure you get the most from the workshop

This workshop is brought to you by Business Station and AusIndustry under the ASBAS Digital Solutions Program
